Aquacel Ag Advantage Wound Dressing is an antimicrobial primary dressing. It is used for chronic and acute wounds that are infected or at risk of infection with varying exudate levels. Aquacel Ag Advantage dressing incorporates two powerful technologies working together to help eliminate the key barriers to healing.

Why choose Aquacel Ag Advantage Dressing?

  • Kills antibiotic-resistant organisms within the dressing
  • Stitch bonded for extra strength and easy removal
  • Creates a moist wound healing environment
  • Extra absorbency for longer wear time
  • Sterile

Aquacel Ag Advantage Wound Dressing Technologies

Aquacel Ag Advantage dressings feature 2 technologies that work synergistically to manage the key local barriers to wound healing - exudate, infection and bioburden.

Barriers to Wound Healing

  • Exudate - Small amounts of exudate are required for healing. But too much exudate creates problems like mentioned below, which may result in more frequent dressing changes and delayed wound healing.
    • Maceration of the surrounding skin
    • Damage to the wound bed
    • Development of persistent bioburden
  • Infection - Infection delays healing.
    • Extends hospital stay
    • Increase costs
    • >70% of the bacteria that cause hospital-acquired infections have antibiotic resistance
  • Bioburden - Persistent forms of bioburden are difficult to completely remove, even with debridement and can regrow quickly.
    • A major contributor to bioburden and delayed wound healing is Biofilm
    • Biofilm is formed when communities of bacteria secrete a slime layer to protect themselves

Aquacel Ag Advantage Wound Dressing Technologies

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

  • More than just silver - a unique formulation that enhances the antimicrobial efficacy of ionic silver within the dressing
  • Faster reduction of bacteria within the dressing compared to Aquacel Ag Extra, and Acticoat
  • Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria within the dressing including antibiotic resistant microorganisms
  • Sustained antimicrobial activity in dressing up to 7 days and prevents microbial reformation

How does the Aquacel Advantage Technology Work?

  • Ethylenediaminetetraacetic (EDTA) - It is a metal-chelating agent. EDTA helps make the transfer of the ionic silver from the dressing to bacteria more efficient. It helps break up bacterial aggregates and prevents their formation and reformation.
  • Benzethonium chloride (BEC) - It is a surfactant that reduces the viscosity or surface tension of anything to which it comes in contact, including exudate and microorganisms. Reduced surface tension allows for increased mobility of EDTA and ionic silver within the dressing, enhancing the ionic silver's ability to contact and kill microorganisms.
