Melgisorb Ag is a highly absorbent silver containing alginate dressing that absorbs moderate to large amounts of wound exudate. The dressing features calcium alginate, caboxymethylcellulose (CMC) an ionic silver. They provide excellent absorption, high wet strength, and low lateral wicking.
Melgisorb Ag absorbs up-to 45% more than the market leading silver hydrofiber dressing. The high fiber strength allows removal in one piece. It provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial effect and a sustained silver release up to 4 days.
Melgisorb Ag is indicated for the management of moderate to heavy exudating partial to full thickness wounds such as surgical wounds, trauma injuries, leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic/neuropathic ulcers, and graft and donor sites. The products can be used under compression bandages.
Because it contains alginate, Melgisorb Ag may assist in supporting the control of minor bleeding in superficial wounds. Melgisorb Ag is suitable for use, under medical supervision, on wounds that are critically colonized. Melgisorb Ag is indicated for external use only.
