Convatec Aquacel Hydrofiber Sterile Wound Dressing is a soft, non-woven pad or ribbon dressing that offers the unique gelling action of Hydrofiber technology that absorbs and locks in exudate and bacteria. This versatile primary wound dressing is for use on moderate to highly exuding chronic and acute wounds including diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, and traumatic wounds. It is made up of 100% Sodium Carboxymethyl-cellulose and converts to a soft gel when in contact with wound exudate, which maintains a moist wound environment that supports the body's healing process.

More Information

  • Hydrofiber Technology:
    Hydrofiber Technology is a patented technology in which fibres of high-quality cellulose are carboxymethylated altering its structure to allow better absorbency and retention of fluid. These fibres are then processed to mesh them together to form a stable fleece layer. When exposed to fluid, the fibres swell to form a clear, soft, cohesive gel structure that closely conforms to the wound bed. As the fibres swell, the fluid and its contents (eg bacteria and other inflammatory cells and enzymes) 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
  • Applications:
    - 
    Sinus tracts (post-procedure)
    - Suture lines
    - Fingers and toes of paediatric patients (burns, abrasions)
    - Orthopaedic pin insertion sites
    - Tube insertion site (g-tube, percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy)
    - Finger or toe degloving
    - Circumcision sites
  • Caution:
    - Use under the supervision of a healthcare professional
  • Directions for use:
    - Use a cleansing solution on the wound surface and the surrounding skin, and dry the skin thoroughly
    - Loosely pack ribbon or pad into deep wounds to about 80% of the depth of the wound to accommodate swelling of the dressing
    - Leave a small overhang (at least 2.5 cm or 1 inch) to facilitate removal
    - Excess dressing can be cut to size without shedding fibers
    - Cover the ribbon or pad with a moisture-retentive dressing
    - Secure the dressing with hypoallergenic tape, if necessary
  • Removal of the dressing:
    Grasp one corner of the dressing and carefully lift away from wound
    - In the unlikely event of adhesion to the wound bed, the dressing can be easily removed by soaking
