Acticoat* 7 (with Nanocrystalline Silver) † dressing is an effective antimicrobial barrier dressing. The nanocrystalline coating of silver rapidly kills a broad spectrum of bacteria in as little as 30 minutes and is effective for up to 7 days. Acticoat 7 dressing consists of five layers: two layers of an absorbent inner core sandwiched between three layers of silver coated, low adherent polyethylene net. Nanocrystalline silver protects the wound site from bacterial contamination while the inner core helps maintain the moist environment optimal for wound healing.

Product Description

Benefits

  • Nanocrystalline Silver Antimicrobial barrier
  • Acticoat 7 dressing provides unique protection for the wound site.
  • Fast acting
  • Laboratory testing shows Acticoat 7 rapidly kills bacteria in as little as 30 minutes - faster than other forms of silver
  • Long lasting antimicrobial barrier
  • Acticoat 7 is a long lasting anti-microbial barrier, which remains effective for up to 7 days.
  • Broad spectrum

(In-Vitro data shows) Acticoat 7 is an effective barrier to over 150 pathogens which includes a broad spectrum of gram positive and gram negative bacteria and fungal wound pathogens. Acticoat 7 is an effective barrier to antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Antibiotic-resistant Pseudomonas, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE).

  • Helps prevent infection
  • Acticoat 7 helps prevent infection of wounds that are susceptible to infection in turn facilitating wound healing
  • Reduces risk of colonisation
  • Acticoat 7 reduces the risk of colonisation. Colonisation can lead to infection, which slows down the wound healing process. This means greater patient comfort and can lead to shorter hospital stays and lower patient cost
  • Effective barrier to bacterial penetration
    Acticoat 7 provides an effective bacterial barrier to protect the wound site
  • Helps maintain the moist wound environment
  • In the presence of exudate, Acticoat 7 helps maintain a moist wound environment, optimal for fast healing
  • Easy to use
  • Easier and less painful to remove than SSD (silver sulphadiazine) preparations making it a dressing of choice for both the patient and carer
  • Low adherent
  • Dressing changes are less traumatic than traditional methods, for both the patient and carer
