Gentell Calcium Alginate Rope with Silver (Ag) Dressing is a sterile, antimicrobial, comfortable, fiber-structured alginate with high absorbency. This advanced alginate dressing with silver fights bacteria and a broad spectrum of microorganisms while absorbing and containing exudate in 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. May be used on deep cavity wounds, such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and surgical wounds with heavy drainage.
• Controlled silver release provides antimicrobial protection to the wound
• Rope is easily packed, molded and folded to fit size of wound
• Uniformly absorbs, collects and contains up to 20 times its weight in wound exudate
