What are Algisite Dressings?

All wounds which have moderate to heavy exudate level, be it ulcers, post-operative wounds, venous ulcers, etc. can be cured easily on application of Algisite Dressings. These dressings are helpful in utilizing the proven benefits of moist wound management. The dressing form a soft gel, which does not adhere to the delicate healing tissues in the wound bed and hence can be easily lifted out of the wound in one piece, or washed out with saline. There are two types of Algisite Dressings available at Wound-Care. These are:

  • Algisite Ag Dressings - The Algisite Ag Dressings are calcium alginate dressings that have silver in them. Suitable for use in wounds with moderate to heavy level of exudate, the dressings are ideal to be used on pressure sores, post-operative wounds, partial thickness, arterial, venous, and diabetic leg ulcers. These are ideal for fungating lesions too.

 

  • Algisite M Dressings - The Algisite M Dressings have a gel form that absorbs on getting in contact with wound exudate. Consisting of Mannuronic acid, these dressings are extremely soft. When in contact with serum, wound exudate, or solutions containing sodium ions, the insoluble calcium alginate converts to the soluble sodium salt, and a gas permeable gel is instantly produced, which conforms to the contours of the wound, facilitating wound healing.

  • The Algisite Dressings produce a gel formation, thereby creating a moist wound environment at the surface of the wound. This promotes an optimal moist wound environment and prevents scarring.
