Kaltostat Calcium Alginate DressingWC779
A dressing to help facilitate wound healing.
KALTOSTAT Calcium Sodium Alginate dressing is indicated for moderately to highly exuding chronic and acute wounds, and for wounds with minor bleeding.
These dressings consist of an absorbent fibrous fleece composed of the sodium and calcium salts of alginic acid in the ratio of 80:20. The dressing is presented as a flat non-woven pad for application to surface wounds.
These dressings allow for effective wound management, as in the presence of exudate or other body fluids containing sodium ions, the fibres absorb liquid and swell. Calcium ions present in the fibre are partially replaced by sodium, causing the dressing to take on a gel-like appearance. This overlays the wound and provides a micro-environment that is believed to facilitate wound healing.
KALTOSTAT Calcium Sodium Alginate dressing is an alginate dressing, ideal for use as a primary dressing for moderately to highly excluding chronic and acute wounds, and for wounds with minor bleeding. On contact with exudates the dressing gradually forms a firm, moist gel which is highly absorbent. An effective and hassle-free wound management system !
