Gentell Calcium Alginate Dressings are a sterile, comfortable, advanced fiber-structured alginate with a highly absorbent capacity. Alginate dressings absorb, collect and contain exudate while providing a moist healing environment. A reaction between the calcium in the dressing and the sodium in the wound exudate creates a gel-like substance that promotes moist wound healing. Use on leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and surgical wounds. May be used for minor conditions such as lacerations, abrasions, skin tears, and minor burns.
• Uniformly absorbs, collects and contains 20 times its weight in exudate
• Can be molded and folded to fit the size of the wound
• Easy to remove – does not adhere to the healing tissue of the wound
