What are the benefits?

The design and the structural integrity of the dressing allow you to cut the dressing and make it fit to wounds of many sizes, shapes and depths. The dressing will conform to the wound bed which is important for the wound healing process.

The high dressing integrity allows for one-piece removal of the dressing with minimal pain and trauma.
The superior absorption of Biatain® Alginate and the gel formation, which locks the exudate inside the dressing, prevent leakage that can damage the periwound skin.

Documented haemostatic effect
Contrary to hydrofibre dressings, Biatain® Alginate has documented haemostatic effect, i.e. ability to arrest blood flow in minor bleedings due to the release of calcium ions from the dressing

How do I use?

Biatain® Alginate can be used on all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full thickness wounds. Biatain® Alginate may assist in supporting the control of minor bleeding in superficial wounds. Biatain® Alginate can be used with compression therapy. Biatain® Alginate should not be used on dry or lightly exuding wounds or to control heavy bleeding. Biatain® Alginate is indicated for pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites or traumatic wounds. Use normal saline solution to clean the wound area.
Pat the area around the wound dry.
Place the alginate dressing over the wound.
Secure a secondary dressing over the alginate dressing to hold it in place.

Warnings

A health care professional should frequently inspect and manage infected wounds, diabetic wounds and wounds which are solely or partially caused by arterial insufficiency, in accordance with local standards. In case of allergic reactions, please contact Coloplast for further information and directions. Warnings and Precuations can be found inside the item leaflet inside the packaging.
