BSN Medical Cutimed® Alginate - Calcium Alginate Dressing - Is a calcium sodium alginate (80% calcium and 20% sodium) made out of natural seaweed. The alginate component enables the dressing to absorb up to 20 times its own weight in exudate. Cutimed® Alginate offers a broad performance spectrum, but is particularly useful for moderate to heavily exuding wounds, shallow wounds, lesions with rough edges, or deeper sites that are hard to dress.

  • The exchange of calcium ions within the dressing with sodium ions, which are present in the exudate, transforms the alginate into a moist gel.
  • Facilitates moist wound healing by maintaining a moist environment.
  • Has haemostatic properties due to calcium ion release from the alginate dressing in contact with body fluids.
  • Reduces risk of maceration only one layer of exudate is maintained at the wound surface but excess exudate is absorbed.
  • Helps to clean the wound bacteria are trapped in the gel formed by the exudate absorbed and are then removed during dressing change.
  • Easily cut to size customisable application.
  • Highly flexible fibres conform to every wound base.
  • Excellent wet integrity easily removed intact.
  • Retains exudate in gel; reduces leakage risk and keeps patient as active as possible.
  • Wet integrity enables rapid dressing changes and minimal patient discomfort.
  • High absorption reduces number of dressing changes.
