SKU: CU7263408-MI
$4.37 to $53.55

Cutimed Alginate is a calcium sodium alginate (80% calcium and 20% sodium) made out of natural seaweed. The alginate component enables the dressing to absorb up to 20 times its own weight in exudate. Cutimed Alginate offers a broad performance spectrum, but is particularly useful for moderate to heavily exuding wounds, shallow wounds, lesions with rough edges, or deeper sites that are hard to dress.

Cutimed Alginate ? mode of action

The exchange of calcium ions within the dressing with sodium ions, which are present in the exudate, transforms the alginate into a moist gel.

  • Facilitates moist wound healing by maintaining a moist environment
  • Has haemostatic properties due to calcium ion release from the alginate dressing in contact with body fluids
  • Reduces risk of maceration only one layer of exudate is maintained at the wound surface but excess exudate is absorbed
  • Helps to clean the wound bacteria are trapped in the gel formed by the exudate absorbed and are then removed during dressing change
