What are the benefits of using it? 

Provides a moist wound healing environment.
Conforms to the contours of the wound.
Atraumatic dressing removal.
Quick and easy to remove by irrigating with saline (0.9%) solution.
Promotes haemostasis.
Minimises disruption to newly formed tissue.

How do I use it? 

Deeper cavity wounds or sinuses may be dressed with Sorbsan packing, which should be placed gently in position but not packed in too tightly. Because the alginate fibre reacts with sodium ions to form a soluble gel, the dressing may be removed by irrigation with sterile normal saline.


Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to Sorbsan Packing or any of its components.

Sorbsan Packing is not intended to be used as a surgical sponge.

Sorbsan Packing should not be packed tightly into a wound.

Sorbsan Packing is not intended to control heavily bleeding wounds, alternative measures must be considered in situations incurring excessive loss of blood.
