Smith & Nephew Acticoat Antimicrobial Barrier Burn Dressing with Nanocrystalline Silver, Low Adherent, Rayon/Polyester Core, Advanced Silver Technology Smith & Nephew Acticoat Burn Dressing with Nanocrystalline Silver is an extended use silver antimicrobial barrier dressing which remains effective for up to seven days. The silver coating rapidly kills a broad spectrum of bacteria in as little as 30 minutes and protects the wound site from bacterial contamination while the inner core helps maintain the moist environment that can facilitate wound healing.
Easier and less painful to remove, making it a dressing of choice.
Not compatible with oil-based products, such as petrolatum.
Can be used on extensive body surface area wounds.
Sustained release of silver for 3 days.
Prevents and reduces infection.
Assists faster healing.
ACTICOAT antimicrobial barrier dressing consists of three layers: an absorbent rayon/polyester inner core sandwiched between outer layers of silver coated, low adherent polyethylene net. ACTICOAT is an absorbent wound dressing that helps to maintain a moist environment at the wound surface. The antimicrobial barrier properties of ACTICOAT remain effective for a minimum of 3 days5.
ACTICOAT has proven highly effective against burn wound infections.
Early application can heal wounds faster22-24, improving your patient’s comfort and quality of life.
Infection rate reduced by 80%25
A 90% reduction in the use of antibiotics25
A significant reduction in the need for skin grafts or other surgical procedures22, 26-28
Proactive burn wound treatment.
Prophylactic use can provide an antimicrobial barrier, following removal of necrotic or heavily infected tissue, for:
- Deep partial thickness burns: slows wound colonisation before definitive surgery29
- Superficial partial thickness burns: prevents wound progression and aids epithelialisation22
ACTICOAT can save costs and alleviate staff workloads.
