Abena’s Calcium Alginate Dressing with Silver features natural calcium alginate fibers and a super absorbent quality. This dressing can absorb up to 12 times its weight in fluid. In combination with its high wet strength, the alginate fibers absorb the wound exudate and form a gel-like covering over the wound. This helps maintain a moist wound healing environment, promote the healing process, and minimize bleeding. The gel-like surface helps keep the dressing from adhering to the wound.

Carefully clean the wound and its surrounding area with sterile water or saline solution and dry the surrounding skin gently.
Select the right size of dressing for the wound area. Carefully open the sterile pouch to remove the dressing inside.
A secondary dressing is necessary when using calcium alginates. If needed, cut the tape and dressing using sterile scissors.
Dampen dressing with sterile water or saline solution to avoid damaging the surrounding skin, then secure it to the wound area.
