Authorized Retailer Badge
  • FSA Approved

Molnlycke Melgisorb Ag Calcium Alginate Dressing is a highly absorbent alginate dressing with CMC and ionic silver that kills bacteria for up to four days. It is made of soft alginate fibres formed into a non-woven material. The superb wet strength of these alginate fibers do not allow the dressing to disintegrate in the wound bed so it may be removed easily in one piece. It can absorb large amounts of exudate, 18 times its own weight.

Uses of Melgisorb Ag Calcium Alginate Dressing

  • Contraindications:
    Individuals with a known sensitivity to alginates or silver
    - Surgical Implantation
    - To control heavy bleeding
    - For direct application on dry or lightly exuding wounds
  • Directions for Use:
    Cleanse wound area and dry surrounding skin
    - Select a size of Melgisorb Ag that is slightly larger than the wound
    - Cut or fold the dressing to fit the wound
    - Loosely fill deep wounds, ensuring the dressing does not overlap the wound
    - Cover and secure Melgisorb Ag with a secondary dressing
    - Note: Dressing change frequency will depend on wound condition and the level of exudate. Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours
  • Precautions:
    - Systemic antimicrobial therapy or other infection treatment should be considered when wound infection is evident. It may be used, under medical supervision, in conjunction with systemic antibiotics.
    - The dressing may adhere if used on dry or very lightly exuding wounds. If the dressing is not easily removed, moisten it with sterile saline solution prior to removal.
    - The dressing performance may be impaired by use of petroleum-based ointments.
    - Melgisorb is not indicated for dry wounds, third-degree burns or surgical implantations.
    - Infected wounds should be evaluated on a regular basis and treated appropriately.
