ConvaTec Aquacel Ag Adhesive Foam Dressing has a soft absorbent foam pad, a gentle silicone adhesive and a waterproof and/or bacteria barrier. It is the only foam that offers comfort and simplicity and the healing benefits of an Aquacel interface. Soft absorbent foam pad enhances patient comfort and absorbs excess fluid.

Parts of Aquacel Ag Adhesive Foam Dressing

Hydrofiber Technology Explained

Hydrofiber Technology is a patented technology in which fibers of high-quality cellulose are carboxymethylated, altering its structure to allow better absorbency and retention of fluid. These fibers are then processed to mesh them together to form a stable fleece layer. When exposed to fluid, the fibers swell to form a clear, soft, cohesive gel structure that closely conforms to the wound bed. As the fibers swell, the fluid and its contents (like bacteria, enzymes and other inflammatory cells) are trapped and held within the dressing. In addition, the gelling action prevents lateral spread of fluid through the dressing to reduce the risk of maceration and promote a moist wound healing environment.

Precautions to take while using Aquacel Ag

  • This device is for single-use only and should not be re-used. Re-use may lead to an increased risk of infection or cross-contamination. Physical properties of the device may no longer be optimal for intended use
  • This wound dressing should not be used with other wound care products without first consulting a health care professional
  • During the body's normal healing process, non-viable tissue may be removed (autolytic debridement) from the wound, which could make the wound appear larger after the first few dressing changes
  • Colonization of chronic wounds is common and is not a contraindication to the use of the dressing. The dressing may be used on infected wounds under medical supervision together with appropriate therapy and frequent monitoring of the wound
