ALGISITE M Alginate Rope by Smith Nephew

Features
  • When used in a moderate to highly exuding wound, the dressing forms a soft gel, which does not adhere to the delicate healing tissues in the wound bed
  • The dressing can be easily lifted out of the wound in one piece
  • Very soft and conformable, allowing it to be molded, folded or cut to meet a wide range of wound shapes and sizes
  • All fiber based alginates release fibers when handled, however the advanced bonding technique employed in Algisite M greatly reduces this
  • The production of a gel by the action of exudate on the alginate fibers creates a moist wound environment at the wound surface, this helps prevent eschar formation and promotes an optimal moist wound environment
  • Absorbs 13 times its own weight in exudate, which allows the dressing to remain in the wound for up to 7 days, depending on the nature of the wound and the volume of exudate
