Cardinal Health™ Hydrogel +Ag is an opaque, amorphous hydrogel containing an antimicrobial silver compound. The antimicrobial silver compound is an effective barrier to bacterial penetration that inhibits the growth of a broad spectrum of microorganisms that come into contact with the gel. This formulation increases the moisture within the wound through water donation, which makes the gel effective in assisting the debridement and desloughing process in dry necrotic wounds, while also maintaining a moist wound environment for optimal wound healing.
Under the medical supervision of a healthcare professional for the management of dry to moderately, exuding partial and full thickness wounds, including:
- Pressure ulcers
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Graft and donor sites
- Diabetic ulcers
- Leg ulcers
- First- and second-degree burns
- Post-operative surgical wounds
- Trauma wounds
Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver or propylene glycol.
