Smith and Nephew Acticoat 7 Antimicrobial Silver Barrier Dressings from EnsureMedical.com employ advanced antimicrobial silver technology to create an effective barrier and an optimal wound healing environment. The rayon/polyester core helps to control moisture levels and silver release. The pure, nanocrystalline silver-coated polyethylene mesh layer allows silver to pass through the dressing to deliver antimicrobial barrier activity within 30 minutes, which is faster than other forms of silver.
Smith and Nephew Acticoat 7 Antimicrobial Silver Barrier Dressings Features:
- Quickly delivers a long-lasting antimicrobial barrier, which can prevent contamination of the wound.
- Sustained silver release over a 7-day period results in fewer dressing changes and therefore less exposure of the wound bed to potential infection.
- Laboratory studies show that the Acticoat 7 dressing kills micro-organisms faster than conventional products such as silver sulfadiazine (1 percent cream) or silver nitrate (0.5%) solution. It has also been shown in-vitro to provide protection against more than 150 pathogens including very resistant strains of bacteria and fungi.
- Acticoat 7 barrier dressings are cost effective since they can be left on wounds for up to 7 days and can be cut to the correct shape and size for the affected area.
