Kalginate™ Thin dressings may be used for: arterial, pressure (stages 2-4), venous insufficiency and diabetic ulcers; superficial wounds and burns; lacerations, cuts and abrasions; partial-thickness (second-degree) burns; donor sites; post-surgical incisions; infected and non-infected wounds.
Contraindicated for use on: full-thickness (third-degree) burns or trauma involving muscle, tendon or bone; as a surgical implant; for surgical hemostat; or on ulcerating lesions due to mycotic or venereal infections.
Kalginate™ Thin is only indicated for moist or exudating wounds. Eschar or necrotic tissue should be surgically or mechanically debrided with an appropriate agent before Kalginate™ Thin is applied to the wound site. In the event that irritation occurs on the wound site after application, discontinue use and see a doctor before further use. In the event the Kalginate™ Thin dries out on the wound site, dressing should be saturated with saline to rehydrate it, allowing for easy removal without trauma to the wound bed.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Irrigate the wound with a sterile saline. Apply Kalginate™ Thin to the wound, packing deep wounds loosely. Kalginate™ rope can be separated to apply to smaller wounds.
Cover with an absorptive dressing and secure if necessary.
Change Kalginate™ Thin when outer dressing is saturated with drainage. Heavily draining wounds usually require daily dressing changes; moderately draining wounds might require less frequent dressing changes.
