Using Hydrofiber™ and MORE THAN SILVER™ technologies, AQUACEL® Ag Advantage antimicrobial dressings help create an ideal healing environment for acute and other challenging wounds. Once applied, this antimicrobial wound dressing controls the development and growth of biofilms to better manage infection and absorb exudate.
How AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Antimicrobial Dressings Work
AQUACEL® Ag Advantage dressings help move wounds through the healing stages through a combination of features:
Once the dressing comes in contact with wound exudate, Hydrofiber™ technology helps it transform into a more conformable gel. The dressing better fits into the wound bed to halt bacterial growth and create a moist healing environment.
As the wound absorbs exudate, this consistency allows the dressing to hold onto bacteria, lessen leaking risks to guard against maceration, and provide cleaner, less-traumatic removal during dressing changes.
NEW ADVANTAGE – MORE THAN SILVER Technology
Ionic silver, in conjunction with ethylenediaminetetraacetic (EDTA) and BEC (Benzethonium Chloride), enhances the dressing’s antimicrobial action to kill a broad spectrum of existing bacteria and microorganisms, including antibiotic-resistant strains, and prevent new biofilms from forming. Antibacterial action exceeds that of AQUACEL® Ag Extra.
Each dressing provides sustained antimicrobial activity for up to seven days and prevents microbial reformation.
Uses for AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Antimicrobial Dressings

• Venous ulcers
