AQUACEL® Ag+ Extra Made Easy

31 May 2017

While there are a number of barriers to wound healing, addressing exudate, infection and biofilm is particularly important when managing slow-healing, static or deteriorating wounds. These barriers combine to increase the chronicity of a wound and must be tackled with innovative technologies that manage the microbial load and ensure an optimum moist wound healing environment. By combining the clinical heritage and unique properties of Hydrofiber Technology with Ag+ Technology, AQUACEL Ag+ Extra dressing works to manage exudate and reduce the risk of wound infection; the dressing disrupts and kills biofilm, helping host defences to regain control, thereby preventing biofilm reformation. The unique design concept of AQUACEL Ag+ Extra dressing is WUWHS-award-winning and supported by clinical evidence.
