Molnlycke Melgisorb Ag Calcium Alginate Dressing is a highly absorbent alginate dressing that kills bacteria for up to four days and contains CMC and ionic silver. It may absorb up to 18 times its weight in exudate. It's constructed of soft alginate fibers that have been woven into a non-woven fabric. The superior wet strength of these alginate fibers prevents the dressing from dissolving in the wound bed, allowing it to be readily removed in one piece.

Why choose Melgisorb Ag Antimicrobial Alginate Dressing?

  • Highly absorbent
  • Rapid and sustained antimicrobial effect
  • Designed for moderately to heavily exuding wounds and cavity wounds
  • Sustained silver release for up to 14 days

What to buy with Melgisorb Calcium Alginate Dressing

How to use Molnlycke Melgisorb Alginate Dressing?

  • Cleanse wound area and dry surrounding skin
  • Select a size of Melgisorb Ag that is slightly larger than the wound
  • Cut or fold the dressing to fit the wound
  • Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound
  • Cover and secure Melgisorb Ag with a secondary dressing

Note: Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially, it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours

Safety Precautions to take while using Melgisorb Ag Calcium Alginate Dressing

  • Systemic antimicrobial therapy or other infection treatment should be considered when wound infection is evident. It may be used, under medical supervision, in conjunction with systemic antibiotics.
  • The dressing may adhere if used on dry or very lightly exuding wounds. If the dressing is not easily removed, moisten it with a sterile saline solution prior to removal.
  • The dressing performance may be impaired by the use of petroleum-based ointments.
  • Melgisorb is not indicated for dry wounds, third-degree burns, or surgical implantations.
  • Infected wounds should be evaluated on a regular basis and treated appropriately.
  • Contraindications:
    • Individuals with a known sensitivity to alginates or silver
    • Surgical Implantation
    • To control heavy bleeding
    • For direct application on dry or lightly exuding wounds
