Convatec Kaltostat Calcium Sodium Alginate Wound Dressing is a soft, sterile dressing made of calcium-sodium alginate fiber that converts to a firm gel or fiber mat on contact with fluid. It is designed to absorb exudate and to help control minor bleeding. It may be appropriately used for moderately to heavily exuding wounds. The dressing provides a moist environment helping to create optimal wound healing conditions and maintains its integrity allowing for easy, atraumatic removal.

More Information

  • Application:
    Carefully cleanse the wound with saline and dry surrounding skin
    - Should be folded or cut to the shape of the wound and applied dry directly onto the wound. For moderately exuding wounds, Versiva XC, DuoDERM or CombiDERM dressings, amongst others, can be used as a secondary dressing over Kaltostatdressing. If highly exuding, a secondary absorbent pad should be used for additional absorbency and secured in place
  • Directions for Use:
    Wound Site Preparation and Cleansing:
    - Before applying Kaltostat Wound Dressing, cleanse the areas with an appropriate wound cleanser
    Dressing Preparation and Application:
    - Kaltostat Wound Dressing should be trimmed to the exact size of the wound avoiding any overlap onto the surrounding skin
    - For heavily exuding wounds, Kaltostat Wound Dressing should be applied dry onto the wound. An appropriate secondary dressing should be used to secure Kaltostat Wound Dressing in place
    - For lightly exuding wounds, Kaltostat Wound Dressing should be placed on the wound and moistened with sterile normal saline. An appropriate secondary dressing should be used to secure it
    - When using Kaltostat ribbon in deep cavity wounds, leave at least 2.5 cm or 1 inch outside the wound for easy retrieval
    Dressing Change and Removal:
    - On heavily exuding wounds, change the Kaltostat Wound Dressing when strike-through of the secondary dressing occurs or whenever good clinical practice dictates
    - Removal should be trouble free on heavily exuding wounds. Kaltostat Wound Dressing will gel at the wound/dressing interface and lift away
    - Removal from lightly exuding wounds may be assisted by saturating the dressing with sterile normal saline
    - Cleanse the wound site with an appropriate wound cleanser before applying a new dressing
    - As with any dressing, Kaltostat Wound Dressing should be removed from the wound and the wound cleansed at appropriate intervals
    Bleeding Wounds:
    - Apply Kaltostat Wound Dressing to the affected area to control minor bleeding. Remove when the bleeding has stopped. Do not leave the dressing in place for more than 7 days
