Pharmapore® PU IV Algi: Transparent, breathable, virus proof, waterproof and bacteria proof polyurethane film dressing, having incision along the middle and haemostatic absorbent pad at the end of incision, located in central position (Pharma-Algi®).
Indicated to cannula and catheter fixation when waterproofness, viral and bacterial barrier properties are essential.
Pharma-Algi® is haemostatic absorbent primary wound pad, made of nonwoven absorbent fibers, coated with a blend of sodium alginate and calcium alginate powder. The wound contact layer is made of non-adherent nonwoven layer.
Pharmapore® PU IV Algi is sterile by ethylene oxide, biocompatible and complying with ISO 10993-5 and ISO 10993-10 requirements.How does it work?
Sodium alginate used in this product rapidly gels and forms a physiologically moist microenvironment that promotes healing and the formation of granulation tissue. Calcium present in this product, exchanges with sodium in the blood to further contribute to the gelling and absorption process. But more importantly calcium ions are donated to the wound; calcium is vital for the clotting process to be successful, which ensures bleeding is stopped.Features
- Highly absorbent:
Pharmapore® PU IV Algi is highly absorbent due to presence of superabsorbent powder (sodium alginate) and also by capillary rise in nonwoven fibres.
- Haemostat effect:
Due to calcium-sodium exchange, Calcium ions which are vital for the clotting process to be successful are released into the wound, which ensures bleeding is stopped.
The dressing is very soft and conformable, so it conforms to wound contours, It also becomes softer and more intimate to the wound after gelling.Indications
Also Pharmapore® PU IV Algi adhesive dressings are used to achieve haemostasis at the bleeding site after needle removal in the renal dialysis and for protection of orificium fistulae.Contraindications
- Do not use on patients with a known allergy to alginates.
- Whilst Pharmapore® PU IV Algi assists in the management of wounds prone to minor bleeding, it is not intended to be used as a surgical sponge or to achieve haemostasis in heavily bleeding wounds.
