Pharma-Algi F IV Film


  • Description

    Pharma-Algi ® F IV Film: 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 Polyurethane film substrate coated with pressure sensitive adhesive having U shaped slit


    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.


    Are used for catheter and cannula fixation and stop bleeding.
