    Suprasorb® A

    Calcium Alginate Dressing

    Suprasorb A is ideal for the care of heavily exuding, superficial or deep wounds. A highly absorbent wound dressing, Suprasorb A is made from calcium alginate derived from natural brown seaweed. The soft dressing conforms easily to any wound base, it even fills deep wounds.

    Suprasorb A absorbs large volumes of exudate by gel formation which creates a moist wound environment. The gel is formed through an exchange of calcium ions from the wound dressing with sodium ions in the wound exudate. Suprasorb A absorbs large volumes of exudate by a rapid gel formation which creates a moist wound environment. When changing the dressing the exudate is removed along with the alginate fibers.

    Suprasorb A is available as a flat sheet and as a rope dressing. It can be used in the management of wounds in the exudation and granulation phase which are:

    • heavily exuding
    • superficial or deep

    Such as:

    • pressure ulcers
    • arterial ulcers
    • venous ulcers
    • skin donor sites
    • post-operative wounds

    Interval between dressing changes

    Depending on the the degree of exudation and the secondary dressings used - can be up to 5-7 days at latest. Always use your judgement as to how frequently to change dressings.
