Warnings and Precautions

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.
