Dressed to the Nines — Calcium Alginate Top Tips

- EST


Alginate wound dressings are non-woven, non-adhesive pads and ribbons composed of natural polysaccharide fibers or xerogel derived from seaweed. On contact with exudate, these dressings form a moist gel through a process of ion exchange. First in the Deep Dive into Dressings series, this session will provide a case-based examination of the wound types best suited for the use of calcium alginates and tips and tricks to optimize their effectiveness.
