Kalginate, by DeRoyal, is uniquely thicker and more substantial than other alginate dressings. Kalginate has a heavy, dense denier fiber that transforms into a fibrous gel as it soaks the wound exudate. This feature gives it the ability to lock in twice the amount of exudate than a typical gauze packing strip.

Kalginate dressings come packaged sterile and are non-woven. They are to be used as a primary dressing and will rest directly against an open wound to take in the oozing exudate. They treat stage II to stage IV wounds as well as second-degree burns and diabetic ulcers. They are good to be used in conjunction with a cover dressing such as the DeRoyal Covaderm Plus barrier dressing to cover and seal the wound.

The following are wound indications that may be ideal for Kalginate dressing:

  • Dreaing Wounds and Exudating Lesions.
  • Dermal Ulcers and Leg Ulcers
  • Partial and Full Thickness Wounds
  • Stage II, III, and IV Wounds
  • Abdominal Wounds
  • Infected and Non-Infected Wounds
  • Superficial Wounds
  • Laceration, Cuts, and Abrasions
  • Pressure Ulcers and Diabetic Ulcers
  • Second Degree Burns and Donor Sites

Kalginate Application

  • Irrigate wound with a sterile saline.
  • Pack Kalginate into the wound -- pack loosely if the wound is deep.
  • Cover the packed wound with an absorptive dressing such as Coverderm Plus Adhesive, or another barrier wound dressing, Non-Adherent Wound Dressing or foam dressing if necessary.
  • Change Kalginate when the outer dressing is saturated (heavy draining wounds may need daily changing).

Kalginate Features and Benefits

  • The dressing absorbs a large amount of wound exudate.
  • The dressing turns to a stable gel as it is moisted by the drainage.
  • It is a primary wound dressing.
  • It can slow or stop weeping, oozing wounds.
  • The dressing treats stage II to stage IV wounds.
