A unique construction featuring nanocrystalline silver (NCS) technology delivers a sustained antimicrobial action for up to 7 days on acute, chronic and burn wounds.
Act with certainty: A large surface area of NCS structure enables sustained release of silver into the wound fluid, while the dressing helps to promote and retain a moist environment, when used with an appropriate secondary dressing. Shown to deliver sufficient silver at a consistent concentration to remain bactericidal.
Fast-acting: Bactericidal in as little as 30 minutes to help improve healing times, when compared to standard treatment.
Helps to minimise infection: Prophylactic use of ACTICOAT Dressings helps to prevent infection. Early intervention as part of an infection management protocol has been shown to reduce the risk of progression to infection.
Sustained performance: ACTICOAT 7 Dressings release sufficient silver to remain active for up to 7 days, potentially creating time and budgetary efficiencies.
Supports appropriate antimicrobial use: Early intervention with ACTICOAT Dressings has been shown to help manage wound bioburden, which may reduce the need for antibiotics.
