ConvaTec Aquacel Non-Adhesive Gelling Foam Dressing offers comfort and simplicity, plus the healing benefits of an Aquacel interface. It has a soft absorbent foam pad which enhances patient comfort and absorbs excess fluid. Auqacel interface gels on contact with wound exudate to maintain a moist environment and locks in wound exudate, including harmful components.

https://static.webareacontrol.com/OptimizeCommonImage/29720215225200x200.jpg-1234-gen.jpg Benefits

  1. A waterproof top layer that permits evaporation of excess moisture while protecting against viral/bacterial penetration, allowing the patient to shower and bathe
  2. A soft, absorbent foam pad to enhance patient comfort and absorb excess fluid 
  3. A Hydrofiber layer with ionic silver that gels on contact with wound fluid and helps provide an optimal environment for wound healing 
  4. A gentle silicone adhesive that provides secure, skin-friendly adhesion, easy removal and demonstrated low potential for dermal irritation or allergic contact sensitization

What to buy with Aquacel dressing

How to apply ConvaTec Aquacel Foam dressing?

  1. Always ensure the skin surrounding the wound is clean and dry. Choose a dressing size and shape to ensure that the central absorbent pad (area within the adhesive window), is 1 cm larger than the wound area.
  2. The dressing can be cut to shape for convenience. If the adhesive dressing is cut, additional tape may be required to secure it in place. Additional tape, or other means of fixation, will be required to secure the Aquacel Foam non-adhesive dressing in place.
  3. Remove the dressing from the sterile pack, minimising finger contact with the wound contact surface and the adhesive surface where applicable.
  4. Remove the release liner if using the adhesive dressing.
  5. Hold the dressing over the wound and line up the center of the dressing with the center of the wound. Place the pad directly over the wound. For the adhesive dressing, smooth down the adhesive border.
  6. Additional tape or other means of fixation will be required to secure the non-adhesive dressing. Discard any unused portion of the product after dressing the wound.

How to remove an Aquacel Non-Adhesive Dressing?

  1. First, always thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.
  2. Apply sterile saline or sterile water to the underside of the dressing.
  3. A sterile swab moistened with sterile saline can help with this procedure if needed.
  4. When the dressing is completely loose, gently lift it off of the wound bed.

Tips to use Aquacel Non-Adhesive Hydrofiber Dressing

  • Apply an Aquacel dressing that is slightly larger than the wound area.
  • Non-adhesive bandages should be covered with a sterile secondary dressing to keep the bandage in place.
  • Adhesive bandages should not have any of the border area in contact with the wound.
  • The pad on the adhesive dressing should slight exceed the wound area.
  • Lightly exuding wounds may require gently moisten the wound with sterile water or saline.
  • Heavy exuding wounds should use an absorbent dressing pad and may require daily changes.
  • As the wound heals and less exudate occurs, a thinner pad or film dressing that retains moisture may be necessary to prevent the wound from drying out too quickly.
  • Aquacel dressing construction has significant strength even when significantly wet to remove from a wound in one-piece.
  • If necessary, irrigation with water or sterile normal saline may help with dressing removal.
