3M Tegaderm™ Alginate Ag Silver Dressing 4" x 5", Box

  • Box of 10 EA
  • Item # 8890303BX
  • Manufacturer: 3M

Tegaderm Alginate Ag dressing is an antimicrobial, highly absorbent wound dressing available as a pad or rope that is composed of sterile calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose and an ionic silver complex (silver sodium hydrogen zirco-nium phosphate). When the dressing comes into contact with wound exudate, it releases antimicrobial ionic silver which very effectively reduces the microbial load caused by a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria (MRSA and VRE). It can also be used for wounds requiring autolytic debridement.

  • Silver ions released in the presence of exudate provide effective antimicrobial protection against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, helping to fight the infection
  • Sustained Antimicrobial protection for up to 7 days allows for longer wear time, increasing patient quality of life and reducing dressing changes
  • Ionic silver complex is not harmful to the patient, resulting in increased patient comfort and safety
  • Can also be used for wounds requiring autolytic debridement
