AQUACEL® Ag+ Dressing Resources: See the Evidence

AQUACEL® Dressings

Download the clinical summary of a recently published review1 summarising why biofilm is a key challenge for clinicians caring for chronic wounds.

  • Biofilm is present in the majority of chronic wounds2
  • It is a key cause of delayed wound healing3 and a precursor to infection4
  • Formation tends to occur when wound moisture and exudate are not well controlled5

Biofilm has an increased tolerance to antimicrobials and antibiotics6

More research is needed to identify a rapid accurate technique to identify and characterise biofilms in ways that optimise their validity in diagnosing or screening patient risk of infection or delayed healing and to inform clinical decisions.1

Watch the video on how biofilm delays wound healing and how AQUACEL® Ag+ dressings perform.
