Algisite M is a calcium-alginate dressing which forms a soft, integral gel when it comes into contact with wound exudates. During this process, the excess wound exudates is absorbed. Algisite M is easy to remove; the dressing does not adhere to the healing tissues in the wound bed. On very lightly exuding wounds, if the dressing is not easily removed, it can be washed out with saline. Algisite M is very soft and comfortable and conforms to wound contours. The dressing can be moulded, folded or cut to meet a wide range of wound shapes and sizes. The moist environment that the dressing creates prevents Escher formation and promotes faster healing. The dressing is highly absorbent and can be left in place for up to 7 days depending upon nature of wound. Algisite M is individually wrapped and sterile and should not be used on patients with known allergies to Alginates.
