Sorbalgon® Ag-Releases silver ions in the presence of wound fluid 

Sorbalgon® Ag-Releases silver ions in the presence of wound fluid 
Sorbalgon

Sorbalgon® Ag is a sterile, silver containing calcium alginate dressing composed with soft, textile fibers of calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and ionic silver complex (silver carbonate). As wound fluids absorb into the dressing, it forms a soft, non-adhering gel by exchanging calcium ions from the dressing for sodium ions from the exudate to help promote the healing process while maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound management.

What are Alginate Dressings?

Alginate dressings are extremely absorbent biodegradable dressings, sourced from calcium alginate fibers of brown algae. As the calcium fibers of brown seaweed absorb sodium ions from the exudate, the sodium and calcium react to each other by swelling and then partially dissolving into a hydrophilic gel. 

The gel works to disintegrate dead tissue, helps the skin to revitalize itself by developing granulation (in other words, new) tissue, eliminates harmful bacteria, and provides the wound with a moist environment that is conducive to healing. 

Alginate dressings can absorb up to 20 times their own weight, and contour to the shape of the wound. This promotes ideal drainage of exudate. These seaweed dressings for wounds can also help with controlling light bleeding, and work to maintain a sterile wound environment. 

When to Use a Calcium Alginate Dressing

A calcium alginate dressing is designed for use on wounds with heavy exudate, or a lot of drainage. Here are some popular utilizations of calcium alginate for wounds. 

  • Wounds with moderate or heavy drainage
  • Acute wounds (8-12 weeks to heal)
  • Chronic wounds (12+ weeks to heal)
  • Skin tears
  • Incisions
  • Fungating lesions
  • Full thickness wounds
  • Chronic ulcers
  • Burn wounds
  • Venous or arterial wounds
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Toenail avulsions
  • Full and partial-thickness burns
  • Sinus tracts
  • Donor sites
