  • FSA Approved

Smith & Nephew Acticoat Seven Day Antimicrobial Barrier Wound Dressing has nanocrystalline coating of pure silver that delivers antimicrobial barrier activity within 30 minutes and is effective for up to seven days. The sustained release of silver also means fewer dressing changes, resulting in less exposure of the wound bed to the environment. It protects the wound site from bacterial contamination while the inner core helps maintain the moist environment.

  • Benefits:
    -
    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
    - The pathogens tested in the lab include very resistant strains of bacteria such as antibiotic-resistant strains of pseudomonas, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, vancomycin-resistant enterococcus and fungi
    - Acticoat 7 is cost-effective because it can be left on wounds for up to 7 days
  • Instructions for Use:
    Application:
    -
    Follow standard protocol to cleanse wound; do not use oil-based cleansing agents
    For heavily exudative wounds:
    -
    Remove the ACTICOAT 7 dressing from the package and cut to size
    - Apply the dry ACTICOAT 7 dressing to the wound, either side down, as the exudate will be sufficient to activate the dressing
    - Cover the ACTICOAT 7 dressing with an absorbent secondary dressing
    - Complete the dressing with appropriate gauze wrappings if necessary
    For all other wounds:
    -
    Remove the ACTICOAT dressing from package and cut to shape
    - Moisten the dressing with sterile water (do not use saline)
    - Allow the dressing to drain on an absorbent surface in a sterile field for at least 2 minutes
    - Apply the ACTICOAT 7 dressing to the wound surface, either side down
    - Cover the dressing with a moist absorbent secondary dressing which may be prepared by saturating gauze with sterile water and wringing out the excess water
    - Complete the dressing with appropriate gauze wrappings if necessary
    - If the dressing dries and adheres to the wound, moisten or soak the dressing prior to removal
    - Avoid forceful removal of the dressing and disruption of the healing wound
