BIATAIN® Alginate Ag Dressing
**SPECIAL ORDER ONLY**
Recommended for cavity filling for infected wounds
The design and structural integrity of the dressing allows you to cut the dressing to fit wounds of many sizes, shapes, and depths.
Patented wound dressing containing a silver complex with a broad antimicrobial profile
Biatain® Alginate Ag provides continuous antibacterial effect during the entire wear time (up to 7 days) (2).
High dressing integrity
The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal with minimal pain and trauma (1).
Minimized risk of leakage and maceration
The absorption of Biatain® Alginate Ag (1) and the gel formation which locks exudate inside the gel prevent leakage that can cause maceration of the peri-wound skin.
Documented hemostatic effect
Contrary to hydrofibre dressings, Biatain® Alginate Ag has documented hemostatic effect, i.e. the ability to arrest blood flow in minor bleedings (4,5).
Mode of action
On contact with wound exudate, Biatain® Alginate Ag converts to a soft, cohesive gel that conforms closely to the wound bed for optimal infection control. The silver complex releases ions in the presence of wound exudate.
Biatain® Alginate Ag is an alginate dressing consisting of alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), and an ionic silver complex.
Biatain® Alginate Ag can be used on all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full-thickness wounds. Biatain® Alginate Ag may be used on infected wounds or wounds at risk of infection. Biatain® Alginate Ag can be used under compression bandages. Biatain® Alginate Ag should not be used on dry or lightly exuding wounds or to control heavy bleeding. Biatain® Alginate Ag is indicated for leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites, traumatic wounds, and second-degree burns.
