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

Cutimed® Alginate–userbenefits

-Easily cut to size customisable application
-Highly flexible fibres conform to every wound base
-Excellent wet integrity easily removed intact

Cutimed® Alginate–patientcomfort

-Retains exudate in gel
-reduces leakage risk
-keeps patient as active as possible
-Wet integrity enables
-rapid dressing changes
-minimal patient discomfort
-High absorption
