How to Use Calcium Alginate Dressing?

Preparation of wound area
  • Wash hands.
  • Assemble equipment and take to bedside.
  • Identify and inform patient of procedure.
  • Provide for privacy.
  • Position patient so that wound area is exposed. (Remove dressing if present).
  • Thoroughly rinse or irrigate the wound area with Restore Wound Cleanser or normal saline, if appropriate. (If necessary, the wound should be debrided).
  • Clean and dry the periwound skin to allow for secure adhesion of the secondary dressing.
  • Measure the wound using the wound measuring guide

Application of dressing
  • Remove dressing from package. (Restore Calcium Alginate Dressings are provided in sterile packages if aseptic technique is required).
  • Apply dressing to wound surface. (The dressing may be trimmed to fit the wound size. Deep wounds should be loosely packed).
  • Cover Restore Calcium Alginate Dressing with an appropriate secondary dressing and secure. (Restore Calcium Alginate Dressing is made from calcium sodium alginate which forms a conformable protective gel when it comes in contact with exudate. The gel forms a moist wound interface providing an environment conducive to moist healing).

Removal of dressing
  • Put on gloves.
  • Remove secondary dressing and discard.
  • Remove the Restore Calcium Alginate Dressing. Dressing maintains integrity when saturated and is easily removable in one piece. (If any portion of the dressing adheres to the wound bed, moisten the dressing before removal).
  • If needed, gently rinse away remaining gel or dressing fibers.
  • Wash hands.
  • Document dressing change, wound measurements and other pertinent observations regarding the wound or periwound site.
    Note: Dressing change frequency will depend on patient condition and the level of exudate.
