AQUACEL™ Ag SURGICAL cover dressings have been designed to be used as a primary dressing and are an easy-to-use, single-product solution and may be used, with the direction of a healthcare professional, for the management of acute, surgical wounds which are at risk of infection or show signs of infection.
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 blistering
- Reduce delayed discharge
- Require fewer dressing changes
- A post-operative regimen using Mephore™ dressing covering AQUACEL® dressing was compared to a new dressing regimen of DuoDERM® Extra Thin dressing covering AQUACEL® dressing after application of a liquid film forming acrylate. A subsequent study demostrated no enhancement of the new dressing regimen by the acrylate.
- Equivalent performance of AQUACEL™ SURGICAL cover dressing to DuoDERM® Extra Thin dressing covering AQUACEL® dressing demonstrated in in vitro testing.
