ConvaMax™ Superabsorber is designed to address moderate to heavy exudate management concerns that standard dressings can’t address. Combines high absorption and retention to help prevent excess exudate from contributing to poor skin integrity. Can be used as a primary or secondary dressing. Ideal where there is a risk of skin damage due to high levels of exudate. Available in non-adhesive and silicone adhesive forms.
• ConvaMax™ Superabsorber can be used as a primary or secondary dressing, dependent on the patient's needs
• Choice of full range of eight sizes to fit any wound type. Choose from both adhesive and non-adhesive versions
• Consists of an air-permeable and waterproof non-woven layer with a superabsorber pad layer
• The gelling silicone core locks in and evenly distributes exudate, ensuring a dry-to-touch, breathable and comfortable environment for the wound
• Protective blue backing prevents strikethrough and maintains conformability
• The triple-layered construction enables improved fluid management to provide the optimal moist wound environment, which promotes faster wound closure and healing time
• Soft-to-touch design: comformable to the skin, easy to apply and remove for patient satisfaction and comfort
• ConvaMax™ Superabsorber has superior exudate retention, even when used in conjunction with compression therapy, the standard of care for venous leg ulcers
• ConvaMax™ Superabsorber has been proven in vitro to not only absorb MMPs but also bind them, reducing the excess MMPs within the wound environment to encourage healing1
• Once exudate has been absorbed, ConvaMax™ Superabsorber retains the fluid within the SAP core, ensuring it is not released back to the wound
• If clinically appropriate, ConvaMax™ Superabsorber should be secured with retention bandages and tape, compression bandages, or wraps
• For wounds with high levels of exudate, ConvaMax™ Superabsorber can replace standard dressings for direct wound bed contact and exudate absorption
• For wounds requiring additional therapeutic interventions, such as antimicrobial treatment, ConvaMax™ may be used as a secondary dressing, in conjunction with a primary dressing such as AQUACEL® Ag Advantage or AQUACEL® EXTRA™. Exudate can transfer through the Hydrofiber® layer and be absorbed by ConvaMax™ Superabsorber. This combination, for example, provides the patient with the benefits of moderate-to-high exudate management and biofilm management in the AQUACEL® dressing.
ConvaMax™ Superabsorber is indicated for the management of moderately to highly exuding wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic foot ulcers and dehisced surgical wounds.
Do not use ConvaMax™ Superabsorber on dry or lightly exuding wounds or eyes to mucous membranes or in wound cavities because the dressing swells during absorption. Do not use on third-degree burns or arterial bleeds and heavily bleeding wounds. ConvaMax™ Superabsorber non-adhesive dressing should not be used on patients with a known allergy or hypersensitivity to the dressing or its components.
Do not reuse ConvaMax™ Superabsorber. Do not use the dressing if the sterilized packaging is damaged or open. Do not cut the dressing; the cover must remain intact.
Dressing can be used for up to three years from the date of manufacture.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
ConvaMax™ Superabsorber non-adhesive dressing:
After the wound is cleansed, select the appropriate sized dressing to allow for sufficient space to the wound edge. ConvaMax™ Superabsorber non-adhesive dressing can be used both as a primary dressing or as a secondary dressing.
When used as a primary dressing, ConvaMax™ Superabsorber non-adhesive dressing must be in close contact with the wound bed to ensure wound fluid is absorbed. White contact layer should be in contact with the skin, and blue waterproof backing should face away from the body. Secure accordingly with retention bandage, tapes or compression bandage if assessed as clinically appropriate.

When used as a primary dressing, ConvaMax™ Superabsorber adhesive dressing must be in close contact with the wound bed to ensure wound fluid is absorbed. White contact layer should be in contact with the skin, and blue waterproof backing should face away from the body. ConvaMax™ Superabsorber adhesive dressing is self-adhesive but may require additional support with a fixation dressing or mild-to-moderate compression bandaging. The frequency of dressing change depends on the level of exudate.
Removal and change frequency are based on wound exudate output and clinician preference. Dressing removal can be facilitated by moistening the dressing with saline solution. Dispose of as clinical waste if contaminated; follow local regulations. Dispose of as clinical waste if contaminated; follow local regulations.
When an additional primary dressing is required, ConvaMax™ Superabsorber may be used with Hydrofiber® dressings such as AQUACEL® EXTRA™ or AQUACEL® Ag Advantage. Exudate can transfer through the Hydrofiber® layer and be absorbed by ConvaMax™ Superabsorber, providing a combination of an advanced wound contact layer and high absorption capacity. This combination, for example, provides the patient with the benefits of moderate-to-high exudate management and biofilm management in the AQUACEL® dressing.
