Aquacel Ag+ Extra

Aquacel Ag+ Extra

ConvaTec

Description

Soft, sterile non-woven ribbon dressing made from a layer of 1.2% ionic silver-impregnated Hydrofiber (sodium carboxymethylcellulose) and enhanced with antibiofilm technology, stitched together with cellulose strengthening fibres. Absorbs wound fluid, and disrupts and breaks down biofilm to expose and kill bacteria, while preventing biofilm re-formation. Provides nine times stronger tensile strength and 50% greater absorption than Aquacel Ag.

Indications

Primary dressing for moderately to highly exuding wounds that are infected or at increased risk of infection, and wounds where bacteria are a suspected cause (or a factor in) chronicity/non-progression. When dressing sinus, tracking or undermining wounds, use ribbon dressing.

Contraindications

Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or who have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components.
