Excellent sterile wound dressing composed of calcium alginate for use on moderately to heavily exuding wounds.
When applied to a wound there will be an ion-exchange between the calcium in the dressing and sodium from the exudate, forming a soluble calcium/sodium alginate gel. The free calcium ions in the wound will amplify the clotting cascade and can reduce bleeding. The interaction with the wound exudates will create a protective gel that is nonadherent and creates a moist wound healing environment.
- Highly absorbent- capable of absorbing 10-20 times its weight
