AQUACEL® Ag Foam dressing

The only silver foam dressing that offers the healing benefits of an AQUACEL® Ag interface layer, the comfort of foam and the bacteria-killing power of ionic silver.*1  

* As demonstrated in vitro

Only AQUACEL® Ag Foam dressing offers the healing benefits of an AQUACEL® Ag interface layer, the comfort of foam and the bacteria-killing power of ionic silver.*1  

AQUACEL® Ag Foam dressings have been designed to be used as a primary dressing. AQUACEL® Ag Foam dressings may be used with the direction of a healthcare professional, for the management of exuding acute and chronic wounds which are at risk of infection or show signs of infection. 

Waterproof/bacteria barrier provides:

-      Controlled moisture vapor transmission*
-      Protection against viral/bacterial penetration*2

Soft foam pad absorbs fluid*

Silicone adhesive border adheres to skin, outside of wound bed

AQUACEL® Ag interface with Hydrofiber® Technology gels on contact with the wound surface to:

  • Lock in wound exudate, including harmful components*3
  • Help maintain a moist wound healing environment
  • Help prevent lateral spread of fluid, reducing risk of maceration*8
  • Micro-contour to the wound bed, minimizing dead space where bacteria can grow*9
  • Kill a wide variety of micro-organisms, including certain tested antibiotic-resistant superbugs, with powerful ionic silver*1

*As demonstrated in vitro
