Easy to Remove:
When used with an exuding wound, AlgiSite M Calcium Alginate Dressing forms a soft gel that does not adhere to healing tissue of the wound. The alginate dressing can be easily lifted out of the wound in one piece or, if necessary, washed out with saline solution
Conforms to the Wound:
AlgiSite ® M Calcium Alginate Dressing can be molded, folded, or cut to fit the shape and size of the wound. As the fibers gel, AlgiSite ® M produces an even more intimate contact with the wound.
Creates a moist wound environment:
As the AlgiSite ® M Calcium Alginate Dressing forms its soft gel, the alginate dressing creates moist environment at the wound surface. AlgiSite ® M promotes an ideal moist wound environment and prevents eschar formation. Allowing the gaseous exchange necessary for a healthy wound bed, the AlgiSite ® M Calcium Alginate Dressing also allows wound contraction to occur, which helps reduce scarring.
Highly absorbent dressing:
Studies have shown that AlgiSite ® M Calcium Alginate Dressing absorbs up to 13 times its own weight in wound exudate, allowing the dressing to remain on the wound for up to 7 days depending on the nature of the wound and the volume of exudate.
