Aquacel wound dressing, produced by ConvaTec, uses the main ingredient of the hydrocolloid dressing in a new way to produce a hydrofibre dressing. Aquacel is designed for use in moderate to heavily exuding wounds as it absorbs exudate directly into its fibres. It has been shown to be effective in pressure sores, leg ulcers and surgical wounds, producing warm, moist, local wound conditions for optimum wound healing. Aquacel can lock exudate away thus protecting the surrounding skin.
