Pharma-Algi ® F Adhesive Ultra: is Island dressing made of non-adherent pad ( haemostatic and absorbent wound dressing, made of calcium alginate fibres, carded and needle punched to form a nonwoven absorbent felt) adhere to Bilaminate of Spunlaced nonwoven polyester inner side and polyurethane film outer side coated with pressure sensitive adhesive.Features
1-Haemostatic effect: due to calcium – sodium ions exchange where calcium ions are donated to the wound which is vital factor for the clotting process.
2-High Absorption capacity: absorb wound exudates and locks it inside the formed gel so prevents skin maceration.
3-Moist wound environment: Upon contact with wound exudates, it rapidly gels which overlays the wound and provides a moist micro-environment that promotes healing and formation of granulation tissue.
4-Conformable and soft: conforms to wound contours.
5-Atraumatic Dressing removal: gel formation prevents adherence of the dressing to the newly formed tissues.
6-Unique Integrity: allowing removal of the dressing as one piece.Indications
