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 healing surface at a moisture level that is optimal 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.

Calcium Alginate Dressings are often used in the management of venous ulcers as they tend to have high drainage and calcium alginate is very absorbent. Sliver containing dressings are often preferred for diabetic wounds and surgical wounds for extra 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.
