Reinforced gelling fiber +Ag dressing is sterile, reinforced non-woven pads composed of a high G (guluronic acid) calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and ionic silver complex (silver sodium hydrogen zirconium phosphate), which release silver ions in the presence of wound fluid. As wound fluid is absorbed, the alginate forms a gel which assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing.
Silver ions protect the dressing from a broad spectrum of microorganisms over a period of up to fourteen days, based on in vitro testing.
Highly absorbent gelling fibers wick and retain exudate away from the wound bed.
Cohesive fiber construction facilitates easy intact/one-piece atraumatic removal.
Odor reduction results from the antibacterial effect in the dressing.

Contraindications: Dry eschar, third degree burns, direct application on dry or lightly exuding wound, to control heavy bleeding and individuals with known sensitivity to alginate/silver.
