ConvaTec Aquacel Ag Advantage Ribbon Wound Dressing features two powerful technologies working synergistically to manage the key local barriers to wound healing - exudate, infection, and bioburden. It helps wound healing to 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. Advantage dressings are antimicrobial primary dressings for use in acute and hard-to-heal wounds that are infected or at risk of infection with varying exudate levels.

  • When using Aquacel Ag advantage wound dressing in deep wounds, only fill the wound up to 80%, as the dressing will expand to fill the wound space on contact with wound fluid.
