ACC+ Plus: advanced wound care management of infected and malodorous wounds2&3 with Activated Charcoal Cloth (ACC)

The dressing consists of a layer of ACC covered on both sides with a soft, non-adhesive wound facing. ACC is a wholly microporous pure activated charcoal textile with rapid adsorption characteristics and large internal storage capacity.5  Its efficiency is unaffected by wound fluids.6  ACC+ Plus will significantly reduce wound infection as bacteria will be adsorbed by the Activated Charcoal Cloth layer and remain bound to the surface of the material. The fixing and removal of bacteria from the wound will lead to a reduction in exudate which will improve the wound environment and promote healing.1 ACC+ Plus will also completely eliminate the malodors associated with infected wounds, thus increasing patient well being and relieving patient and nursing stress.4

In use in Hospitals and Home Care facilities
 
Instructions for use:
Place either side of ACC+ Plus dressing on wound leaving a minimum of 1/2" overlap and secure using tape or bandages. ACC+ Plus can be hydrated with saline prior to use on dry wounds. Change ACC+ Plus according to the condition of the wound and dispose of after use.
