AlgiSite M is a calcium-alginate dressing which forms a soft, gel that absorbs when it comes into contact with wound exudate. Algisite M helps utilize the proven benefits of moist wound management.
In-vitro studies have shown that Algisite M can absorb 13 times its own weight in exudate. This allows the dressing to remain in the wound for up to 7 days, depending on the nature of the wound and the volume of exudate.
Areas of use: Leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds, lacerations, abrasions, skin tears, minor burns.
