Details

Calcium Alginate Dressings by McKesson are rectangle, sheet dressings that are used as a primary dressing that is designed to be cut to fit wounds with moderate to heavy exudate. The dressings absorb wound fluid while helping to maintain a moist wound environment. The seaweed-derived alginate turns to a moist gel mass material when saturated, helping to regenerate skin and expedite the healing process. Requires a secondary dressing.

Vitality Medical also carries other items that would pair well with the Calcium Alginate Dressings, such as Mepilex Border Dressing and Betadine Povidone Iodine Solutions.

Indications: Wounds with moderate to heavy exudate. May help absorb minor bleeding.

Contraindications: Patients with a known hypersensitivity to the product itself or to its components.

Change Frequency: Change dressing as directed by a healthcare professional.

Recommended Secondary Dressings: Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing depending on the amount of exudate and frequency of dressing change.
