Aquacel Ag Extra 5cm x5cm for open wounds
I have used this product for two separate situations - 1. Pilonidal sinus wound that had split open, and 2. knee wound treatment. On both occasions I used the Aquacel Ag for about 2-3 days,and then reverted back to typical wound care dressings. The reason for using the Aquacel Ag is that the gel that is produced really advances the wound healing, in my opinion like no other dressing/packing. It shortens the time it takes for the wound to get to a stage where typical wound care dressings can take over and finish the job. Before using Aquacel Ag I had spent weeks on end doing the typical wound packing and wound care with minimal advance in wound healing. With Aquacel Ag it progressed the wound healing along and after a few days I could revert to the typical wound care dressings to complete the job. In my opinion and in my experience.It is worth the investment for prolonged or tricky open wounds that are slow to heal.
Effective component of the care plan for an ongoing wound (pilonidal sinus)
