Kendall™ Calcium Alginate dressings are a soft, sterile, non-woven dressing composed of calcium-sodium alginate fibres. When Kendall™ Calcium Alginate dressings come into contact with wound exudate they develop a gel consistency. Also available is Kendall™ Calcium Alginate with Zinc providing added benefits.
*A heavily exuding wound may require dressing changes once or twice a day. As the wound heals and exudate is reduced, dressing changes can be made less frequently (every 2-4 days) or as directed by a health care professional.
Kendall™ Calcium Alginate dressings are not indicated for third degree burns or for use as a surgical sponge. They are not designed to control heavy bleeding and are contraindicated for that purpose.
