Alginate and hydrocolloid dressing - absorbent calcium alginate dressing.

Features and Benefits

  • In contact with wound exudate, Urgosorb dressing gelifies and provides quicker cleansing
  • Urgosorb absorbs the exudate from highly exuding wounds and maintains a moist environment which creates the condition that favour thehealing process
  • Urgosorb absorbs vertically only, with no lateral migration of the exudate. The surrounding skin is thus respected and protected from anyrisk of maceration
  • Urgosorb gels, softening and draining the necrotic debris during the sloughy and granulation stages of the moist necrosis
  • Urgosorb can be removed easily, painlessly and in one go
  • Urgosorb's high conformability enables to adapt instantly to the surface of the wound
  • Through platelet activation, Urgosorb dressing favours primary haemostasis of acute and chronic bleeding wounds

Composition

Synergy of two natural polymers - incorporation of hydrocolloid particles (carboxy-methyl cellulose) in a mesh of calcium alginate fibre.

Indications

Urgosorb is indicated for the local treatment of exuding and bleeding wounds, at the sloughy and granulation stages.

Contraindications

Urgosorb is contraindicated for the endo-nasal area in rhino-sinusitis surgery, third degree burns, surgical implants, and  control of heavy bleeding.
