The ReliaMed® Alginate/CMC Dressings with Antimicrobial Silver provide a broad spectrum of antimicrobial protection for up to seven days with its controlled silver ion release. The Dressings feature a blend of Calcium Alginate and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) which provides superior gelling and wet strength for one-piece, non-traumatic removal.
The Alginate Dressings are highly absorbent. They are designed so fluid wicks vertically into the dressing thus reducing the possibility of skin maceration. They reduce odor primarily produced by bacteria.
The many applications of the ReliaMed® Alginate/CMC Dressings include:
These Dressings should not be used on individuals with third-degree burns, dry or lightly exuding wounds, or a known sensitivity to silver and/or calcium alginate.
