ConvaTec has announced the introduction of AQUACEL® Ag BURN dressing, including a glove for use specifically in partial thickness burns to hands, where a large number of burn injuries occur. The gloves come in a range of sizes from child to adult. Flat and glove dressings are reinforced with Nylon stitching to offer patients maximum flexibility and range of motion. Enhanced flexibility and mobility for burn patients is especially important to ensure that the wound heals properly and prevents contracture.
AQUACEL® Ag BURN dressing can be left in place for up to 21 days, helping to reduce the need for painful dressing changes and the risk of exposure to pathogens in the atmosphere. The dressings will self-detach as the burn heals and inflict less trauma to the wound bed and patient. Both dressings absorb and hold exudate and harmful bacteria that can prevent healing or increase the risk of infection.
