Silver Alginate Dressing

With the same basic properties of our calcium alginate dressing, this silver alginate dressing adds an antibacterial function to the dressing with the sustained-release silver ions which counteract the effects of potential bacterial invasion. This includes a variety of bacteria strains, including E coli and Staphylococcus aureus. The silver alginate rope easily conforms to the shape of tunneling wounds, filling empty spaces and efficiently absorbing any blood or exudates. A soft gel is formed as the silver alginate bandage absorbs up to twenty times its weight in liquid while simultaneously providing a fast-healing, moist wound environment. This silver dressing is indicated for partial thickness burns, certain types of ulcerations and other post operative wounds. They may be kept in place for three days.
