AQUACEL® Ag Burn
The right dressing can make a big difference.
Building on Hydrofiber® Technology, AQUACEL® Ag Burn dressings, with the added benefits of ionic silver, helps you:
- Minimise dressing changes and related pain1-5
- Reduce risk of infection*6-7
- Customise the dressing to patient needs with a variety of rectangular and glove sizes
AQUACEL® Ag Burn dressings offer wear times of up to 21 days (or until change is clinically indicated) and gently detach from the burn wound as it dries and heals.
Flexibility in dressing sizes and designs — including gloves — promotes patient mobility and satisfaction.
ConvaTec Hydrofiber® Technology gives AQUACEL® dressings powerful capabilities.
