Calcium Alginate Dressings

Calcium alginate is a highly absorbent, biodegradable dressing easily removed with saline irrigation. Alginate dressings promote a moist microenvironment that promotes healing and the formation of granulation tissue.  Calcium alginate can absorb large amounts of exudate, debris from the wound bed, provide an ideal healing environment, and painless dressing change. Several brands exist such as Kaltostat, Medihoney, Silvercel, Restore, and Reliamed.
