Alginate Dressings

Alginate Dressings are composed of calcium alginate, a gelatinous and water-insoluble substance. 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 that maintains a moist environment for the wound. Good for exudating wounds and helps in debridement and sloughing of wounds. Do not use on low exudating wounds as this will cause dryness and scabbing. Dressings should be changed daily.
