Designed for High Absorption & Intact Removal

NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing is a sterile, non-woven pad consisting of high G (guluronic acid) alginate and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) fibre. Designed with gelling capabilities, it enables intact removal while providing high absorbency.

This soft non-woven alginate dressing absorbs excess fluid, and protects and covers the wound bed, helping to create a moist environment for chronic and superficial wounds. The dressing does not dissolve, facilitating intact removal. 

NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing was developed to manage moderate to heavily exuding chronic wounds and control minor bleeding in superficial acute wounds.

  • Highly absorbent
  • Helps maintain a moist wound healing environment
  • Facilitates intact removal 

Specific indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and safety information exist for KCI products and therapies. Healthcare providers should review the product User Manual, Safety Information and/or Instructions for Use prior to application.

Overview

Strength

 
Even when the dressing is moist, as a gelled fiber, its structure remains intact.

Wet Tensile Strength

 

In vitro data demonstrates that dressing tensile strength is maintained when wet1, which may facilitate intact removal.

High absorbency

NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing is a highly absorbent dressing. In-vitro data shows that it can absorb up to 18 times its own weight in fluid, which may reduce the frequency

of dressing changes1*. NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing forms a hydrophilic gel at the wound surface to help create a moist wound environment.

 


The average** in-vitro absorbancy for NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing is 23.9 g/100cm2
