NU-DERM™ Alginate Wound Dressing

Designed for High Absorption & Intact Removal

NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing is a traditional non adherent primary dressing. 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
  • Minimizes the need for wound irrigation at dressing change, freeing up time
 

Overview

Strength

Even when the dressing is moist, as a gelled fiber, its structure remains intact. The high vertical absorption of exudate into the fiber dressing protects the wound edge1, thus supporting the healing process.
 

Wet Tensile Strength

In vitro data demonstrates that dressing tensile strength is maintained when wet1 to facilitate intact removal and minimize the need for wound irrigation at dressing change.
 

Easily Cut or Folded

NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing can be cut or folded to accommodate the wound bed profile, filling dead space and helping to minimize pooling.

About

Designed for High Absorption

NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing is designed to absorb exudate while helping to maintain a moist wound healing environment.

The NU-DERM™ Alginate Dressing’s hydrophilic fiber forms a gel at the wound surface-generating this moist wound environment. Overall, in vitro data shows, this highly absorbent dressing holds up to 18 times its own weight in fluid and maintains tensile strength, facilitating intact removal and minimizing the need for wound irrigation at dressing change.

As a result, the highly absorbent Alginate may help reduce the frequency of dressing changes,1 freeing up precious clinician time.

Specifications

NU-DERM™ Alginate Wound Dressing is a sterile, non-woven pad consisting of high G (guluronic acid)
alginate and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) fibre. The wound dressing is designed to be fast gelling and to allow removal intact.
