Acticoat is an advanced antimicrobial dressing by Smith & Nephew. Developed with three separate layers, Acticoat provides exceptional wound care for partial or full-thickness wounds, including burns. The three layers of this Wound Dressings are as follows: 1) layer of apertured non-woven rayon and polyester fabric, 2) a layer of silver coated, high density polyethylene mesh, and 3) a second layer of silver coated, high density polyethylene mesh. Each of these layers are bonded together to help prevent separation. As a Silver Dressing, Acticoat provides antibacterial protection against a wide variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria to fight against infection by using Nanocrystalline Silver. This antibacterial activity includes protection from many strains of bacteria resistant to antibiotics. This silver wound dressing should be changed every three days unless there is heavy exudation which would require more frequent changing. Smith & Nephew has also developed a silver dressing that provides wound protection for up to seven days called Acticoat 7. This dressing provides less disturbance to the wound by extending the time between dressing changes.
