Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing with Silver by McKesson is a sterile, antimicrobial wound dressing that is designed to assist with reducing infections and decreasing bioburden. The Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing with Silver acts as a primary wound dressing that can be cut to fit wounds with moderate to heavy exudate. The dressing releases silver ions when coming into contact with wound fluid, protecting the dressing from bacterial colonization and in turn providing an effective barrier to bacterial penetration. Requires a secondary wound dressing.
Vitality Medical also carries other items that would pair well with the Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing with Silver, such as Kendall 6715 KERLIX 4.5x4.1 Gauze Rolls 6 Ply - Sterile and Betadine Antiseptic Prep Solution.
