Acticoat dressing is indicated as an antimicrobial barrier layer on shallow and deep wounds, including bedsores, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, burns, skin donor and recipient sites. Acticoat can be used on infected wounds. If a dressing is applied to infected wounds, the infection should be controlled and treated according to local clinical protocol.
Acticoat (with SILCRYSTTM Nanocrystals) is an antimicrobial barrier. The silver nanocrystal coating kills a wide range of bacteria in 30 minutes. The Acticoat bandage consists of 3 layers: an absorbent layer sandwiched between layers of silver covered with a non-stick layer of polyethylene. Nanocrystalline silver protects the wound site from bacterial infection, while the inner layer, by absorbing exudate, maintains an optimal moist environment for wound healing.
- Nanocrystalline silver antimicrobial barrier – the bandage provides unique protection of the wound site.
- An effective barrier to bacterial penetration – an effective barrier that protects the wound from invasive pathogens.
- Broad spectrum antimicrobial activity.
- Gradual release of silver over 3 days – ensures that Acticoat remains effective for at least 3 days.
- Fast action – Studies show that Acticoat kills bacteria in less than 30 minutes – faster than other forms of silver.
- Prevents and reduces infection – Acticoat kills pathogenic organisms in the wound, reducing the risk of infection. Acticoat also effectively reduces bacteria in an already infected wound.
- Promotes faster healing – promotes wound preparation and helps maintain a favorable environment for wound healing.
- Low toxicity – Unlike other antimicrobials, Silver Acticoat does not interfere with wound healing.
- Easy to use – easy to put on and take off. Can be cut to the shape of the wound.
- Non-stick – changing the bandage is less traumatic than with traditional methods.
