• Assists with infection reduction
• Silver ions released in the presence of wound fluid protect the dressing from bacterial colonization and provide an effective barrier to bacterial penetration


McKesson Calcium Alginate with Antimicrobial Silver Sheet Dressing is an effective barrier to bacterial penetration in moderately to heavily exuding wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers, pressure injuries, partial- and full-thickness wounds, donor sites, and traumatic and surgical wounds.


Not for use on third-degree burns, patients with a known sensitivity to alginates or silver, and controlling heavy bleeding. Should not be used with products that create an ionic exchange in the wound site (ie, do not use with enzymatic debriding agents), but safe to use normal saline to cleanse the wound prior to dressing application.
