Recommended for cavity filling The design and the structural integrity of the dressing allow you to cut the dressing and make it fit to wounds of many sizes, shapes and depths. The dressing will conform to the wound bed, which is important for the wound healing process. High dressing integrity The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal of the dressing with minimal pain and trauma (1,2). Minimized risk of leakage and maceration The superior absorption of Biatain® Alginate (1,2) and the gel formation, which locks the exudate inside the dressing, prevent leakage that can damage the periwound skin. Documented hemostatic effect Contrary to hydrofibre dressings, Biatain® Alginate has documented hemostatic effect, i.e. the ability to arrest blood flow in minor bleedings due to the release of calcium ions from the dressing (4,5). Mode of action On contact with wound exudate, Biatain® Alginate converts to a soft, cohesive gel that provides an optimal moist wound healing environment (2). Product composition Biatain® Alginate is an alginate dressing consisting of 85% alginate and 15% carboxymethylcellulose (CMC). Usage Biatain® Alginate can be used on all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full thickness wounds. Biatain® Alginate may assist in supporting the control of minor bleeding in superficial wounds. Biatain® Alginate can be used with compression therapy. Biatain® Alginate should not be used on dry or lightly exuding wounds or to control heavy bleeding. Biatain® Alginate is indicated for pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites or traumatic wounds.   REFERENCES 1.
