Excellent natural dressing for use on heavily exuding wounds
Biotronix Healthcare, Alginate Dressing is a sterilized wound dressing which is composed of calcium alginate, a gelatinous and water- insoluble fibers derived from seaweed. When in contact with a wound, the calcium alginate in the dressing reacts with sodium chloride from the wound. This turns the dressing into a hydrophilic gel-like covering over the wound and maintains a physiologically moist environment that promotes wound healing and the formation of granulation tissue. This Alginate Dressing is very useful for moderate to heavily exudating wounds.
