Combination dressing with a mix of skin-friendly hydrocolloid technology for comfort during body movement, and proprietary Hydrofiber® Technology with ionic silver to help manage serosanguinous fluid. Cover layer of polyurethane film provides a viral, waterproof and bacterial barrier (when intact and with no leakage), for a high-performance dressing. Added ionic silver provides sustained antimicrobial activity for up to fourteen days as demonstrated by in vitro studies.1
AQUACEL® Ag SURGICAL cover dressings are an easy-to-use, single-product solution to the post-operative management of surgical incisions. They are designed to enhance clinical outcomes and facilitate patient mobility. Added ionic silver provides sustained antimicrobial activity for up to 14 days as demonstrated by in vitro studies1.
Evidence supports that, compared to a non-woven post-operative surgical cover dressing regimen, AQUACEL® Ag SURGICAL cover dressings.2a, 3b: Reduce surgical site infection (SSI)Reduce skin blisteringReduce delayed dischargeRequire fewer dressing changes
