Silver calcium alginate dressings combine powerful absorption with potent antimicrobial action, to control drainage while fighting off bacteria in a wound.

The silver ions in these dressings provide an antibacterial action against numerous strains of bacteria, while the alginate forms a protective gel over the wound surface.

Silver Alginate Dressings are easy to apply and are often used to lower infection risk, especially in patients with diabetes and poor circulation.

Calcium Alginate with Silver 4×5 (10 ct.)

Our Antimicrobial Silver Calcium Alginate dressings combine the bacteria-reducing power of silver with the super absorbent properties of an alginate, helping to draw in wound fluid and debris, reduce the bioburden in infected wounds, and keep wounds clean.

 

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.
