Brand/Manufacturer: BSN MEDICAL
Authorized Retailer Badge

BSN Cutimed 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. The dressing 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.

  • BSN Cutimed Calcium Alginate Dressing mode of action
    - 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
