Alginate, one kind natural cellulose, and natural polysaccharides carbohydrate which was extracted from algae, composed the main ingredient of alginate dressing.
Alginate dressing, one kind of high hygroscopic functional dressing, come into being soften transparent gel after contact with wound, and provide ideal wetting environment to facilitate wound heal and relief pain.
1 Natural cellulose and high hygroscopicity natural polysaccharide carbohydrate extracted from algae absorb 11 to 20 times liquid of its mass
2 Hemostasis acceleration discharge ca2+, after contact with transudate, to promote formation of thrombin activator and accelerate blood clotting.
3 Gel formation Na+/Ca2+ ion exchanged between transudate and alginate, forming stable reticular gel on wound surface to provide favorite micro-environment for tissue(light acid, none or low oxygen, moderate moisture)
4 Wound healing acceleration “Guide for Wound Medical Products(external usage and dressing)”, issued by FDA in Aug. 2000, highlighted that keeping wound moisture is standard treatment.
5 Anti-bacteria Good sealing to prevent wound from bacteria.
Moist and slightly acid condition is good for neutrophil to enhance partial sterilizing ability and reducing infection ratio.
6 Relieve partial pain Hydrogel formed on wound surface protect teleneuron from outside stimulation, and not stick with the wound with painless dressing change realized.
7 Reducing scar forming No scar formed due to none stimulation, harmness and scab.
