What are Aquacel Dressings?

Wound care presents to you a wide range of Aquacel Dressings which are composed of hydro fiber that helps in absorbing all the wound fluid. These are also useful for improving the adhesion of the dressing and other tapes. This is ideal for use on moderate to highly exuding wounds. The extra strength helps in easy removal. The even distribution of ionic silver permits antimicrobial activity. The silver deeper within acts as a reservoir to provide sustained silver availability.

There are different kinds of Aquacel Dressings. These are as follows:

1) Aquacel Dressings- These are non-woven hydro fiber composed dressings that take the shape of a soft gel on absorption of wound fluids, thereby absorbing the exudate and bacteria. Providing a moist wound healing environment, the Aquacel dressings are suitable for use on leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers etc.

2) Aquacel Ag Dressings- Impregnated with ionic silver, the hydro fiber in them releases the silver in a controlled manner. This type of dressing is suitable for use on exuding wounds which are at risk of infection.

3) Aquacel Extra Dressings- With 9 times greater strength, these have better absorbing properties than regular Aquacel dressings. Available with impregnated silver these are suitable to use on infected wounds.

4) Aquacel Ag Extra Dressings- This combines the strength of normal Aquacel dressing with new Ag+ technology that destroys wound Biofilm and kills infection causing bacteria.

5) Aquacel Ag+ Extra Dressings- these are anti-microbial and manage the 3 key barriers to healing, which are- exudate, biofilm and infection. Comprised of 2 layer of Hydro fiber Technology, this dressing is 9 times stronger and 50% more absorbent than standard Aquacel Dressings.
