Description of Aquacel AG with Silver

Aquacel AG with Silver is a wound dressing made of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. It contains 1.2 per cent silver in an ionic form that reduces the chances of infection. The dressing helps in reducing post operative site infection and skin blistering.

Seek medical help before you buy Aquacel AG with Silver. Before using the dressing, clean the wound with a wound cleanser. Aquacel AG with Silver is used on an area larger than the wound. It must overlap at least 1 cm on the skin over the wound. The dressing is placed above the wound and covered with a secondary dressing, either with a bandage or surgical tape.

Indications & Dosage of Aquacel AG with Silver

Aquacel AG with Silver delays discharge compared to the non-woven ordinary dressing. The dressing interacts and absorbs the wound, traps bacteria and provides a micro-environment that helps heal the wound. Aquacel AG with Silver is made using textile fiber. It is very soft and highly absorbent. It is available in two forms- a flat and unwoven pad for application on large open wounds, and a ribbon for dressing cavities. The available sizes are: 15cm x 15cm, 10cm x 10cm, 5cm x 5 cm, 20cm x 30cm and 2g x 45cm ribbon. It is over 20% stronger than other dressings. It has 25% less chances for shrinking as well.

Aquacel AG with Silver can be used for different types of wounds, leg ulcers, donor sites, pressure areas, minor cuts, scalds and burns and deeper cavity wounds. While using Aquacel AG with Silver on exuding wounds, you must moisten the area directly above the wound with sterile water or saline. For these kind of wounds, a flat non-wove pad must be used. Aquacel AG with Silver Ribbon could be used for deep cavity wounds. The dressing must be placed gently over the wound, not tightly. Doctors generally recommend that only 80% of the cavity be covered with dressing leaving space for swelling. During the process of healing, the body removes the non-viable tissues from the wound. This will make the wound look bigger in the initial days. If the wound continues to grow bigger for many days, consult your doctor. Aquacel AG with Silver dressing must be changed at regular intervals. The frequency of change depends on the nature of the wound and the response of the patient to treatment. Dressing for heavy exuding wounds must be changed daily initially. Later, once the wound starts healing, the dressing can be kept up to 14 days. Aquacel AG with Silver is very easy to remove and doesn’t cause any pain or trauma.

Aquacel AG with Silver must be kept at room temperature away from direct sun, heat and moisture. Make sure that it is kept away from the reach of children. Open the pouch only before use. Damaged and opened pouch loses the sterility. If you find it difficult to remove the dressing, soak it in water or saline and remove after sometime.
