Smith & Nephew introduces new antimicrobial gelling fiber dressing

Smith & Nephew, a provider of advanced wound management services, has introduced Durafiber Ag antimicrobial gelling fiber dressing that combines the highly absorbent, gelling fiber filler dressing with the benefits of silver (Ag).

Clinicians will now have the effective exudate management and anti-shrinkage properties of the Durafiber dressings with the addition of a broad-spectrum antimicrobial.

Smith & Nephew advanced wound management interim president North America Robin Carlstein noted Durafiber Ag is strong when wet – a key attribute for ease of use for gelling fiber dressings.

"The DURAFIBER portfolio facilitates clean, cost-effective, one-piece dressing removal continuing on the Smith & Nephew commitment to deliver consistent clinical and economic benefits for wound care," Carlstein added.
