NuMed Silver Alginate Dressing and Rope are soft, conformable wound dressings with a high mannuronic acid content. The silver impregnated alginate fibers, 1.5% w/w silver as silver calcium alginate per dressing, forms a gel when in contact with wound exudate or blood, which creates a moist wound healing environment.
The silver in the alginate wound dressing has an antibacterial effect on various types of bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and E coli. The sustained release of silver ions protects the dressing from a broad spectrum of bacterial contamination over a period of up to 3 days.INDICATIONS
