Activheal Alginate is used for moderate and heavily exuding wounds.

The absorbent alginate fibres in the dressing, gel on contact with the wound fluid and gently conform to the wound surface. Alginates absorb exudate away from the wound whilst maintaining an ideal moist wound environment. The versatility of ActivHeal Alginate dressing means that it conforms well to different shaped wounds and is ideal for difficult to dress areas such as cavity, to promote healing from within.
The key performance attributes of ActivHeal Alginate dressings are  its absorbency and high wet strength. performance. When ActivHeal Alginate dressings are applied to an exuding wound the sodium salts present in exudate exchange with calcium in the alginate to form a hydrophilic gel. The high wet strength of ActivHeal Alginate ensures the dressing remains integral on removal. Alginate fibres are biodegradable therefore any residual fibres that remain after a dressing change pose no risk to patient safety. ActivHeal Alginate fibres are naturally haemostatic. Following absorption of wound exudate the alginate dressing releases calcium ions into the wound which can activate platelets to control minor bleeding.
