  • Incorporates two powerful technologies working together to help eliminate the key barriers to healing: exudate, infection and bioburden
  • Hydrofiber® Technology helps wound healing: Absorbs wound fluid and creates a soft gel, maintaining a moist wound environment and helps reduce pain associated with dressing changes
  • Locks in exudate and bacteria to help minimize the harmful effects of maceration and cross infection
  • Micro-contours to the wound bed, eliminating dead space where bacteria can grow
  • New Advantage Technology is more than just silver - a unique formulation that enhances the antimicrobial efficacy of ionic silver within the dressing
  • Sustained antimicrobial activity in dressing up to 7 days and prevents microbial reformation
Product Overview:

AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Enhanced Hydrofiber Dressing with Silver


The AQUACEL Ag Advantagehas the same core technology as the former AQUACEL® Ag Extra with MORE THAN SILVER technology. The former dual-purpose antimicrobial dressing absorbs exudate with the power of ionic silver. The new AQUACEL® Ag Advantage has a unique formulation containing three components that work together synergistically to enhance the antimicrobial efficacy of ionic silver within the dressing1.

AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Enhanced Hydrofiber Dressing with Silver kills a broad spectrum of wound pathogens in the dressing that can cause infection - including MRSA and VRE. The AQUACEL Ag is a dressing indicated for partial-thickness burns, skin graft and donor sites, postoperative wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers, and pressure ulcers.

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.

Q:
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.
