Calcium Alginate with silver combines the absorbent benefits of Calcium Alginate with the antibacterial properties of silver!

Calcium Alginate dressings are super absorbent dressings that absorb excess wound drainage – keeping the wound surface at an optimal moisture level for healing, while the silver ions inhibit bacterial growth. 

These dressings are often use when wounds appear to be infected or have an odor indicating high bacterial load on the wound surface.

Because Calcium Alginate Dressings are very absorbent, they are often used to manage venous ulcers and other types of heavily draining wounds. Sliver-containing dressings are often preferred for diabetic wounds and surgical wounds due to their added protection against infection.

Calcium alginate with silver combines the absorbent benefits of calcium alginate with the antibacterial properties of silver. These dressings are often used on wounds at risk for infection or with suspected bacterial load. 

Calcium Alginate dressings are super absorbent dressings that promote moisture balance, keep wounds clean, and facilitate natural healing. These dressings are easy to apply and an excellent choice for many wound types.

 

What is a Calcium Alginate Dressing?

Calcium alginate dressings are non-woven, absorbent dressings made from seaweed. These dressings can hold up to 20 times their weight and are ideal for wounds with moderate to large amounts of drainage.

When the calcium and sodium fibers come into contact with wound drainage, the dressing transforms into a gel consistency that conforms to the shape of the wound bed. This action promotes wound healing by filling “dead space” within the wound and maintaining a moist environment that is optimal for healing.

Calcium Alginate dressings are non-occlusive and non-adherent, allowing for gas and heat exchange at the wound surface while also minimizing trauma and discomfort with dressing changes.

 

Advantages of Calcium Alginate with Silver Dressings

  • absorb moderate to large amounts of drainage
  • reduce risk of infection by lowering bacterial burden and absorbing debris
  • maintain moist environment for natural healing (autolytic debridement)
  • non-adherent, resulting in less pain with removal
  • appropriate for infected or tunneling wounds
  • hemostatic properties, help to stop bleeding
  • versatile, can be combined with many other topical agents
  • non-occlusive, allow gas exchange across surface of wound

 

How to Apply Silver Calcium Alginate Dressings

 

When Should Calcium Alginate Dressings Be Used?

  • wounds with moderate to heavy drainage
  • bed sores/pressure ulcers (stages III or IV)
  • venous stasis ulcers
  • wounds with tunneling/undermining
  • infected wounds
  • wounds with irregular shape
  • traumatic wounds and skin tears
  • incisions and dehisced wounds

 

Considerations for Alginate Dressings

  • not indicated for dry or minimally draining wounds
  • may be cut to fit size of wound bed to protect healthy tissue surrounding wound
