About Algicate Ag
Silver Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing
Circle A Medical is very excited to introduce this revolutionary wound dressing. These wound treatments are made of highly flexible, non-occlusive, absorptive layers of algicate. Algicate is made of seaweed fibers and are completely biodegradable, not to mention extremely non-abrasive and soft on the most tender of tissue.
What sets this wound dressing above the rest is the adding of the antimicrobial silver to the dressing. In addition to the already present calcium ion compound, incorporating antimicrobial silver gives this dressing a one-two punch of healing power. Algicate Ag is comprised of an almost unstoppable amalgam of elements to give patients the best chance at rebuilding cells and healthy tissue.
- Silver ions provide an antimicrobial action
- Dressing absorbs exudates and maintains a moist wound environment
- Made specially for intact removal
