In low- and middle-income countries, accidents resulting from burn injuries in wilderness activities often cause high mortality and morbidity due to lack of therapeutic options and resources. Current research demonstrates the potential of Aquacel Ag in providing a cost-effective and rapid healing process for burn injury patients. This literature review includes valid experimental studies drawn from the PubMed, ScienceDirect, EBSCO, Cochrane, ProQuest and Taylor & Francis Journal databases, which met the inclusion criteria. The search method used a boolean operator with literature quoted from 2012 – 2022. Seven studies with a total 451 of burn injury patients were included in this review. Seven studies with 460 burn patients treated with Aquacel Ag were included in this review. When compared to other regimens, Aquacel Ag has shown to reduce healing time, improve cost-effectiveness, be easier to apply, and increase convenience for the patient with no serious side effects. The effectiveness and safety of Aquacel Ag in burn injury management are all significant, but it is recommended that further research be conducted more in Asian populations, especially Indonesia.
