NU-DERM™ Alginate Wound Dressing
NU-DERM™ Alginate is a sterile, non-woven pad consisting of high G (guluronic acid) alginate and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) fiber.
• Highly absorbent for fewer dressing changes
• Conformable when moist - less disruptive to new tissue
• Quickly forms a hydrophilic gel at the wound surface to help create a moist wound healing environment
• Maintains tensile strength when wet for intact dressing removal and minimizing the need for wound irrigation
NU-DERM™ Alginate Wound Dressing is indicated for the management of moderate to heavily exuding chronic wounds (such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, diabetic ulcers and arterial ulcers) and to control minor bleeding in superficial acute wounds (such as abrasions, lacerations, donor sites and postoperative wounds).
