AgFix TR is an Ideal dressing for exudate management at the insertion site during tracheostomy. High absorbent pad and anti-microbial layer keep the insertion site infection free.
Following unique features of AgFab Silver technology makes AgFix TR safer and highly effective wound dressing.
1. Sustained silver ion release
The unique silver antimicrobial technology in use ensures a steady release of Ag+ ions in concentration levels above Minimum Inhibitory (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal (MBC).
2. Broad spectrum efficacy
Silver ions are active against a broad range of bacteria, fungi and viruses, including many antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Epidermidis (MRSE) and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE)
3. Multifaceted attack of the bacteria
Silver ions, unlike antibiotics, attack bacteria in multiple ways. Silver ions cause structural damage and prevent essential cellular functions resulting in the loss of infectivity to cell death
AGFIX TR Foam Dressing has following layers
Non-adherent Poly ethylene layer prevents the dressing from adhering to the wound. This enables the dressing removal painless without disturbing the newly formed granulation tissue.
Anti-microbial Silver layer releases silver ions to the wound bed and reduces the wound bio burden to a level supportive for the faster healing process.
5 mm thick Hydrophilic Polyurethane foam helps in absorption of exudates.
Waterproof semi-permeable Polyurethane film protects the wound from bacterial strike through.
Available in dressing size of 9 X 9 cm for catheter size of 8.5 cm.
