AQUACEL® SURGICAL cover dressings are an easy-to-use, single-product solution to the post-operative management of surgical incisions. They are designed to enhance clinical outcomes and facilitate patient mobility.

Evidence supports that, compared to a non-woven post-operative surgical cover dressing regimen, AQUACEL® SURGICAL cover dressings1,2:

  • Reduce surgical site infection (SSI)
  • Reduce skin blistering
  • Reduce delayed discharge
  • Require fewer dressing changes

 

Notes:

    • A post-operative regimen using Mephore™ dressing covering AQUACEL® dressing was compared to a new dressing regimen of DuoDERM® Extra Thin dressing covering AQUACEL® dressing after application of a liquid film forming acrylate. A subsequent study demostrated no enhancement of the new dressing regimen by the acrylate.
    • Equivalent performance of AQUACEL® SURGICAL cover dressing to DuoDERM® Extra Thin dressing covering AQUACEL® dressing demostrated in in vitro testing.
