AQUACEL Ag EXTRA Dressing (ConvaTec)


AQUACEL Ag+ dressings comprise two powerful technologies working synergistically to manage the key local barriers to wound healing - exudate, infection and biofilm.

Ag+ Technology  is a unique ionic silver-containing, antibiofilm formulation that:

  • Disrupts and beaks down biofilm slime to expose bacteria
  • Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria, including antibiotic resistant superbugs, with its reservoir of silver 
  • prevents biofilm formation

Hydrofiber™ Technology helps create an ideal environment for healing – and for Ag+ Technology to work.

  • Locks in excess exudate, bacteria and biofilm to help minimize cross infection and prevent maceration
  • Micro contours to the wound bed, maintaining optimal moisture balance and eliminating dead spaces where bacteria and biofilm can grow
  • responds to wound conditions by forming a cohesive gel, while helping to minimise pain associated with dressing changes

AQUACEL Ag+ Extra dressing my be used for the management of:

  • wounds as a barrier to bacterial penetration of the dressing as this may help reduce infection;

  • wounds where there is an infection or an increased risk of infection (Extra only);
  • diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers, (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed aetiology) and pressure ulcers/sores (partial & full thickness);
  • surgical wounds;
  • traumatic wounds;
  • wounds that are prone to bleeding, such as wounds that have been mechanically or surgically debrided;
  • oncology wounds with exudate
  • wounds where bacteria are a suspected cause of (or a factor in) chronicity /non-progression.

In addition, AQUACEL Ag+ Ribbon dressing may be used for cavity and deep wounds including sinus, undermining and tracking wounds.

Please Note: Must be used in conjunction with a secondary dressing/bandage to secure it down
