Cutimed Alginate Dressings
Cutimed Dressings is a alginate , calcium sodium alginate dressing.
Cutimed Alginate Dressings are highly absorbent dressings used to manage moderate to heavily exuding wounds. The dressings are made from natural seaweed fibres that transform into a soft gel on contact with wound exudate. The gel forms a moist wound healing environment, which promotes faster healing and reduces the risk of infection.
These dressings are easy to apply and remove, with minimal trauma to the wound bed. They are ideal for use on wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, surgical wounds, and diabetic foot ulcers. The dressings are available in a range of sizes to fit different wound sizes.
Cutimed Alginate Dressings are indicated for use on moderate to heavily exuding wounds, including pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, surgical wounds, and diabetic foot ulcers. They can also be used as a secondary dressing for infected wounds or wounds with slough or necrotic tissue.
Directions for Use:
- Clean the wound area and remove any excess exudate or debris.
- Select an appropriate size of the Cutimed Alginate Dressing.
- Apply the dressing directly onto the wound, ensuring that it covers the entire wound bed.
- Secure the dressing in place with a secondary dressing or bandage.
- Change the dressing as often as necessary, depending on the amount of exudate produced by the wound.
Note: It is important to consult a healthcare professional before using the Cutimed Alginate Dressings.
