HYDROFIBER® TECHNOLOGY

The Hydrofiber® Technology in AQUACEL® Ag powerfully absorbs and retains wound exudate by hydrophilic action

  • Dry AQUACEL® Ag fibers gel on contact with the wound fluid
  • Fibers swell as they lock wound exudate, containing bacteria, away from the wound by vertical wicking
  • Creates a large fluid-absorption capacity
  • Cohesive gel forms an intimate contact with the wound surface, reducing dead space
  • Bacteria are locked within the gelled AQUACEL® Ag fibers
  • Ionic silver kills bacteria
  • Helps reduce the risk of airborne dissemination and cross-infection of wound pathogens, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria (e.g., MRSA)
  • Helps reduce the risk of airborne dissemination and cross-infection of wound pathogens, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria (e.g., MRSA)

MECHANISM OF ACTION

AQUACEL® Ag is the only antimicrobial dressing that offers the unique gelling properties of Hydrofiber® Technology

  • Forms a cool gel sheet on contact with wound fluid
  • Does not require premoistening
  • Absorbs up to 22 times its weight in fluid
  • Designed to protect healthy wound edges by reducing the risk of maceration caused by excessive moisture

AQUACEL® Ag contains the power of ionic silver

  • Kills Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), and other wound pathogens in the dressing
  • Prevents colonization in the dressing, killing a broad spectrum of microorganisms that can cause infection
  • Provides an effective barrier to bacterial penetration to help reduce infection

AQUACEL® Ag provides immediate and sustained antimicrobial activity

  • Antimicrobial activity within the dressing is sustained for up to 14 days
  • Silver is continuously available in the dressing within a moist environment

Aquacell Ag with Hydrofiber Dressings are sold by the each or by the box.

MetroMedicalOnline offers high quality Pacifica Exam Gloves to be worn while cleaning the wound and changing dressings. After consulting your physician, products such as Blairex Sterile Wound Wash Saline or Sea-Clens are good options for wound cleansing. Many of our customers have reported excellent results using Puracyn Skin and Wound Cleanser OTC (formerly Microcyn OTC). Puracyn OTC is an innovative new approach to wound care promoting faster healing time. It is a non-irritating, pH-balanced wound cleanser for minor cuts, burns, irritations, and superficial abrasions of the skin.

After the wound has closed, proven scar treatments such as Cica-Care, Mepiform, or Kelo-Cote will improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation. Always consult your physician or wound care specialist before starting any wound care treatment program.

We also carry supplies for compression wrapping such as Comprilan, Elastoplast, and Jobst Cover-Roll.
