Melgisorb® Plus Calcium Alginate Dressing
Melgisorb® Plus Calcium Alginate Dressing is a sterile, absorbent calcium alginate dressing for moderately to heavily exuding partial- to full-thickness wounds.
• Forms a soft gel on contact with wound exudate, providing a moist wound environment conducive to healing
• Does not adhere to the wound site, reducing trauma in situ and at dressing changes
• Blocks lateral wicking, reducing the risk of periwound skin maceration
Melgisorb® Plus Calcium Alginate dressing may be used for: pressure, venous, arterial and diabetic ulcers; donor sites; post-operative wounds, dermal lesions; and traumatic wounds.
Contraindicated for use on dry wounds, full-thickness (third-degree) burns, or for surgical implantation.
