Features of Convatec Aquacel Silver Dressing

  • Supports moist wound healing environment
  • Cohesive gel allows easy, atraumatic removal
  • Reduces maceration by locking exudate into its fibers and away from the skin
  • Absorbs and retains higher levels of exudate than most alginates4,5,6 and gauze
  • The single-product solution to the post-operative management of surgical incisions
  • Has added ionic silver provides sustained antimicrobial activity for up to fourteen days, as demonstrated by in vitro studies
  • Soft and conformable allowing intimate contact with the wound surface. This reduces “dead space” where bacteria may reside
  • Contains ionic silver, which can kill a broad spectrum of wound pathogens that can cause infection – including MRSA, VRE, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa

How to Use Convatec Silver Ag Dressing?

  • Before applying, carefully cleanse the wound with saline and dry surrounding skin
  • Apply directly onto the wound, leaving an adequate overlap onto the surrounding skin of at least 1cm
  • When using Aquacel Ag dressing ribbon in cavity wounds, loosely pack the wound to about 80% capacity leaving at least 2.5cm outside the wound for easy retrieval
  • The Aquacel Ag dressing should then be covered with an appropriate secondary wound care dressing


Aquacel Ag dressing is indicated as a primary dressing for moderately to heavily exuding wounds where there is an infection or an increased risk of infection.

  • Chronic wounds: leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and fungating lesions
  • Acute wounds: post-surgical wounds, abrasions, lacerations and partial thickness burns
