Excellent Wound Care Product

Pros:
High Quality. Good Value. Durable. Promotes Rapid Healing. Painless Dressing Changes.
Cons:
Cost.
Best Uses:
Wound Care. Moderate/High Drainage. Post-Op Wound Treatment.
Describe Yourself:
Abdominal Surgery Patient. Post-Wound Vac User. Multiple Open Abscesses. Self-Treatment.

Aquacel AG treats moderate to high draining wounds -- both acute and chronic -- remarkably well. I have found that healing is quicker with Aquacel than with standard and iodoform gauze dressings, and dressing changes have little to no pain since it does not stick to the wound bed like gauze can. It can be left in place for several days (up to 7, according to ConvaTec's website) -- I personally have left it in place as long as 3 days without any issues. Works well in combination with DuoDERM, which keeps it in place and protects the wound and keeps it waterproof. It can be pricey, but it is worth the money -- especially if you have to treat a chronic wound or one with drainage. I tried another brand's silver-impregnated sheet, but I like this much better and went back to using it.

Aquacel ag

Pros:
High Quality. Durable. Good Value.
Describe Yourself:
caregiver.

I use this product to help treat my elderly mother's leg wounds. She has very thin skin and is also on prednisone and when her skin breaks it doesn't heal quickly. I learned about Aquacel from the U CLA Wound Care Center and it is a great product for reducing infection and helping to heal stubborn wounds.

Question:
How long can bandages with Silver or antibiotic ointments be stored. My sister's pressure Ulcer is almost healed, it was a stage 4. I was told once a stage 4, all ways a stage 4. The thing is insurance will stop paying for care once the wound is closed. It can take 2 or 3 weeks to get supplies so, I wanted to buy some so if it opened again I could treat it while I was waiting on the supplies.

Answer:
The package I bought has a date on the back of 5/2018 so I assume it is the expiration date. Even if you have opened it and then reseal it, it should remain effective to use.

Answer:
It depends on how much wound drainage you're experiencing. Aquacel AG, due to the antimicrobial properties, can stay in place for up to 7 days. It is actually most effective if it is in place for at least a couple of days. I had abdominal surgery and open abscesses that I had to treat, and initially I would change the dressing once daily (due to heavy wound draining), but after a week I could keep it in place for 2-3 days. From personal experience, for wound packaging, I've found that cutting a piece of Aquacel AG, packaging it in the wound cavity, covering it with DuoDerm (to hold it in place and keep it clean and waterproof), then covering it with something like Mepilex Border has been the best treatment. With daily showers, I usually can keep it in place for 2-3 days, then change the dressing and clean the wound). This stuff is remarkably effective and much better than packing gauze (regular or iodoform). Healing tends to be quicker, and Aquacel kind of "gels" when absorbing fluid so it has little to no pain when removing it from the wound bed (unlike gauze, which can sometimes stick and pull).
