DermaCol/Ag™ is an advanced wound care dressing made of collagen, sodium alginate, carboxyl methylcellulose, ethylenediamine-tetra acetic acid (EDTA) and silver chloride. Transforms into a soft gel sheet when in contact with wound exudates. Maintains a moist wound environment, and creates ideal conditions for healing. Antimicrobial silver chloride prevents colonization of the dressing. May be trimmed and layered for management of deep wounds.
- Benefits: Maintains a moist wound environment that aids in the formation of granulation tissue and epithelialization, dual MMP inhibition to help initiate healing in stalled/chronic wounds and encourage granulation, collagen matrix attracts MMPs, protecting granulation tissue, EDTA removes zinc to inhibit MMP activity, CMC and sodium alginate absorb excess wound exudate for optimal moisture balance.
- Indications: For the management of full and partial thickness wounds including pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, mixed vascular ulcers, venous ulcers, donor and graft sites, abrasions, traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention, dehisced surgical wounds, first and Second degree burns.
