Hydrogels have played a significant role in wound care for over 20 years. They have been used safely on a variety of wound types and have successfully treated patients with skin damage related to incontinence. Primarily, hydrogels are used to assist in the debridement of necrotic tissue and with its unique formulation, Aquaform® hydrogel has been excellent at providing moisture to wounds. However, the new formulation of Aquaform hydrogel has a number of advantages over its predecessor and has the potential to greatly improve patient care.
