    Non-woven calcium/sodium alginate consisting of high M alginate in cohesive fiber construction.

    • As wound fluid is absorbed, the alginate forms gel, maintains moist environment for optimal wound healing and the formation of granulation tissue.
    • Highly absorbent gelling fibers.
    • Cohesive fiber construction.
    • For management of moderate to heavy exuding, partial to full thickness wounds.
    • May be used on deep/cavity wounds.
    • Not for dry eschar, third-degree burns, surgical implantation, heavy bleeding and individuals with known sensitivity to alginates.
    • Used as primary dressing.
    • Change frequency: Up to seven days.
    • Sterile.
    • Latex-Free.

    Kendall™ Calcium Alginate Dressings are designed to absorb up to 20 times their weight in exudate.

    Benefits:

    • Made of natural alginate materials
    • Kendall™ PLUS (Item No. Z9236) is designed to absorb up to 30 times its weight in exudate
    • Encourages vertical wicking, which creates a moist environment that promotes wound healing, and prevents maceration
    • Creates a protective gel layer over the wound
    • Adaptable to different types of wounds
    • Easy application and removal
    • High tensile strength
    • Controls minor bleeding

    Indication For Use:

    • Designed for granulation tissue, and minor bleeding.
    • Local treatment of external wounds with moderate to heavy exudate, deep cavity-forming wounds, second degree partial-thickness burns, surgical draining wounds, venous stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers, lacerations, abrasions, and donor sites.

    Contraindications:

    • Do not use as a surgical sponge or on third-degree burns.
    • Do not use to control heavy bleeding.
    Additional Information:
    • Sterility: Sterile

    • Absorbent calcium alginate dressing with the added benefit of zinc.
    • Absorbs exudate from wound and creates a protective cushioning gel and optimal moist healing environment.
    • Protective gel binds exudate and helps prevent skin maceration.
    • Can be used on infected wounds.
    • Absorbs approximately 20 times the dressing’s weight.
    • Unique composition and weaving pattern help to provide a simplified one piece removal.
    Additional Information:
    • Sterility: Sterile
    • Brand: Kendall™
  • Coloplast

    Highly absorbent alginate dressing for use on moderate to heavily exuding wounds of any size, shape and depth.

    • The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal of the dressing with minimal pain and trauma.
    • The dressing will conform to the wound bed, which is important for the wound healing process.
    • The superior absorption and the gel formation, which locks the exudate inside the dressing, prevent leakage that can damage the periwound skin.
    Additional Information:
    • Composition / Ingredient: 85% Calcium Alginate/15% Carboxymethylcellulose
    • Sterility: Sterile
    • Latex content: Latex-Free
    • Brand: Biatain®
  • Coloplast

    Highly absorbent alginate dressing with silver for use on moderate to heavily exuding infected wounds or wounds at risk of infection of any size, shape and depth.

    • Minimized risk of leakage and maceration.
    • Patented wound dressing containing a silver complex with broad antimicrobial profile.
    • The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal with minimal pain and trauma.
    Additional Information:
    • Composition / Ingredient: Alginate
    • Sterility: Sterile
    • Latex content: Latex-Free
    • Brand: Biatain®
  • Coloplast

    Superior absorption for sloughy wounds and cavity filling.

    • Fast-gelling alginate.
    • One-piece removal.
    • Moderate-to-high levels of wound exudate.
    Additional Information:
    • Composition / Ingredient: Alginate
    • Brand: Biatain®
    • Feature / Property: Moderate-to-High Wound Exudate Lavels, Fast-Gelling, One-Piece Removal
    • Length: 44cm
    • Width: 3cm
  • Coloplast

    Highly absorbent silver alginate dressing for moderately to heavily exuding infected wounds of many sizes, shapes and depths.

    • Recommended for cavity filling for infected wounds.
    • The design and structural integrity of the dressing allow you to cut the dressing to fit wounds of many sizes, shapes and depths.
    • The patented wound dressing containing a silver complex with broad antimicrobial profile that provides continuous antibacterial effect during the entire wear time (up to 7 days) (2).
    • The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal with minimal pain and trauma (1).
    • The absorption of Biatain® Alginate Ag (1) and the gel formation which locks exudate inside the gel prevent leakage that can cause maceration of the periwound skin.
    • Biatain® Alginate Ag has documented hemostatic effect, i.e. the ability to arrest blood flow in minor bleedings (4,5).
    • On contact with wound exudate, Biatain® Alginate Ag converts to a soft, cohesive gel that conforms closely to the wound bed for optimal infection control. The silver complex releases ions in the presence of wound exudate.
