Smith and Nephew Acticoat Absorbent Silver Wound Dressing from EnsureMedical.com is an extremely absorbent calcium alginate wound dressing with an advanced nanocrystalline silver barrier to help create an optimal healing environment. Laboratory studies show that Acticoat dressings kill more than 150 pathogens and micro-organisms faster than conventional products such as silver sulfadiazine (1 percent cream) or silver nitrate (0.5 percent solution). The alginate fibers create a moist wound environment which does not adhere to the wound and can be easily removed.
Smith and Nephew Acticoat Absorbent Silver Wound Dressing Features:
- The nanocrystalline coating of pure silver delivers antimicrobial barrier activity within 30 minutes.
- Able to absorb many times the dressing’s weight in exudates, while maintaining high wet and dry strength.
- Soft and conformable dressing is easy to apply and remove and can be cut to fit the wound.
- Fast gelling, high mannuronic acid fibers with advanced bonding for low fiber shed.
