AQUACEL® Ag dressing for leg ulcers

 

 

AQUACEL® Ag dressing does more than just provide antimicrobial activity.

*Artist's interpretation

AQUACEL ® Ag Dressing is indicated for moderate to highly exuding wounds which are infected or at risk of infection.

Because it is the only antimicrobial dressing that incorporates Hydrofiber® Technology, it:

  • Releases ionic silver in a controlleda manner as wound exudate is absorbed into the dressing1,2
  • May help protect periwound skin by helping reduce the risk of macerationb,3,4
  • May help minimise cross-infection during dressing removalb,5
  • Is soft and conformable6
  • Supports wound healing by providing a moist wound healing environment7
  • AQUACEL ® Ag Dressing provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity in vitro1,2,8
  • As demonstrated in in vitro testing, AQUACEL ® Ag Dressing provides sustained antimicrobial activity for up to 7 days.2

CLINICAL STUDY RESULTS

Vanscheidt, et al. 2003

In a multicentre, non-comparative clinical trial of 15 patients with chronic leg ulcers, managed with AQUACEL ® Ag Dressing, the following was observed8:

  • 95% of ulcers managed in the protocol of care showed marked or mild improvement after 28 days
  • Mean reduction of ulcer area was 23.9%
  • Pain scores from baseline to final evaluation were significantly reduced for both dressing in situ and during removal (P<0.05).
