AQUACEL Ag Hydrofiber Dressing (silver impregnated antimicrobial dressing) is a soft, sterile, nonwoven pad composed of sodium carboxymethylcellulose and 1.2% ionic silver which allows for a maximum of 12mg of silver for a 4 inch x 4 inch dressing.
The silver in the dressing kills wound bacteria held in the dressing, and provides an antimicrobial barrier to protect the wound bed.
This dressing absorbs high amounts of wound fluid and bacteria and creates a soft, adhesive gel that intimately conforms to the wound surface, maintains a moist environment and aids in the removal of non-visible tissue from the wound (autolytic debridement).
Moist wound healing environment and control of wound bacteria supports the body’s healing process and helps reduce the risk of wound infection.
