A natural seaweed derivative, DermaGinate Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing is a highly absorbent dressing for moderate to high exudate wounds. Upon contact with moisture, the dressing becomes gel-like to absorb fluids. By turning into a gel-like texture, the alginate dressing creates a moist environment that promotes wound healing.
Calcium alginate wound dressings are ideal for wounds with significant drainage. These non-woven dressings are biodegradable and fill wound space to absorb exudate and facilitate debridement. For use on exuding wounds, cut the sheet or rope into the desired shape or length, and fill the wound bed. The dressing will expand in the wound, so be sure to avoid overfilling the wound space. Use a secondary dressing to wrap the wound, and replace once fluid seeps from the dressing.
4" x 8" sheets help in absorbing fluids from regularly shaped wounds. Rope can be cut to any length, making it ideal for irregularly shaped wounds not suited for the use of dressing sheets. The 12" Fluffy Rope leaves less residue.
