Calcium Alginate Dressings by McKesson are rope-style wound dressings that are used as a primary dressing that can be cut to fit wounds with moderate to heavy exudate. They are perfectly formulated to absorb wound fluid while maintaining a moist wound environment. The seaweed-drived alginate turns to a moist gel mass when placed in contact with the exudate of the wound, helping to expedite the healing and regeneration of skin.
