Suprasorb® A + Ag
Calcium Alginate Dressing with Antibacterial Silver, Rx Only
Suprasorb A + Ag is ideal for the care of heavily exuding wounds. Highly absorbent, Suprasorb A + Ag dressings are made from calcium alginate derived from natural brown seaweed. The soft and comfortable wound dressing fills even deep wounds and conforms to most any wound bed. The dressing forms a gel when in contact with wound exudate.
The silver in Suprasorb A + Ag has an antibacterial effect on the wound bacteria in the dressing including Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. The silver ions protect the dressing from a broad spectrum of bacterial contamination over a period of up to 3 days in the in vitro challenge test.
Suprasorb A + Ag is available as a flat sheet and as a rope dressing. It can be used in the management of wounds which are:
- moderate and heavily exuding
- superficial or deep
- pressure sores
- arterial ulcers
- venous lower leg ulcers
- diabetic ulcers
- post-operative wounds
Interval between dressing changes
Depending on the degree of infection, the degree of exudation and the secondary dressings used - can be up to 3 days. Always use your judgement as to how frequently to change dressings.
