When challenged with high levels of bioburden, a variety of wounds and burns become candidates for management with antimicrobial silver dressings.
Because ALGICELL® Ag is highly cost effective, it can be used more often to help reduce the risk of infection in moderately to heavily exuding wounds that include:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology)
- Pressure ulcers/sores (partial and full thickness)
- Donor sites
- Traumatic and surgical wounds
ALGICELL® Ag is not indicated for treatment of third degree burns, patients with a known sensitivity to alginates or silver, or control of heavy bleeding.
