AQUACEL® AG Extra™ is an advanced wound care dressing designed to manage exudate and reduce bioburden in chronic and acute wounds. It is composed of two layers of Hydrofiber® technology, which transforms into a cohesive gel when in contact with wound exudate. This gel formation helps maintain a moist wound environment conducive to healing, while also conforming to the wound bed to fill dead space and minimize the risk of infection.

Key Features:
– Hydrofiber Technology: The dressing is made from carboxymethylcellulose fibers, which form a gel upon contact with fluid. This helps to absorb and lock in wound exudate, reducing the risk of maceration and promoting a moist wound healing environment.
– Impregnated Ionic Silver: The dressing contains ionic silver, which is known for its broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties. This helps to reduce the bacterial load in the wound, lowering the risk of infection and promoting a healthier healing environment.
– Double Layer Structure: The dual-layer design enhances the overall strength and durability of the dressing, making it suitable for use in highly exuding wounds. The structure supports easier handling and application.
– Contouring and Dead Space Elimination: AQUACEL® AG Extra™ contours closely to the wound bed, effectively eliminating dead space where bacteria might thrive. This close contact helps to ensure that the silver ions and the gel-forming fibers are in direct contact with the wound.
– Wicking Technology: The wicking technology ensures that exudate is absorbed vertically into the dressing rather than spreading laterally. This prevents the exudate from reaching the wound edges, reducing the risk of maceration and promoting a more efficient healing process.

Clinical Applications:
– Chronic Wounds: Such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and pressure ulcers.
– Acute Wounds: Including surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, and donor sites.
– Infected Wounds: Where bacterial contamination or infection is a concern.
– Burns: Partial-thickness burns where moist wound healing and infection control are crucial.

Usage Instructions:
– Preparation: Cleanse the wound according to standard protocols.
– Application: Cut the dressing to fit the wound size, ensuring overlap onto healthy surrounding skin. Apply directly to the wound bed.
– Fixation: Secure the dressing with an appropriate secondary dressing or bandage.
– Change Frequency: The dressing should be changed according to clinical conditions, wound exudate levels, and local protocols, typically every few days or when saturated.

AQUACEL® AG Extra™ is a versatile and effective dressing that offers both antimicrobial protection and efficient exudate management, making it a valuable option in modern wound care.
