Pharmapore® PU IV Algi: Transparent, breathable, virus proof, waterproof and bacteria proof polyurethane film dressing, having incision along the middle and haemostatic absorbent pad at the end of incision, located in central position (Pharma-Algi®).
Indicated to cannula and catheter fixation when waterproofness, viral and bacterial barrier properties are essential.
Pharma-Algi® is haemostatic absorbent primary wound pad, made of nonwoven absorbent fibers, coated with a blend of sodium alginate and calcium alginate powder. The wound contact layer is made of non-adherent nonwoven layer.
Pharmapore® PU IV Algi is sterile by ethylene oxide, biocompatible and complying with ISO 10993-5 and ISO 10993-10 requirements.
Pharmapore® PU IV Algi is highly absorbent due to presence of superabsorbent powder (sodium alginate) and also by capillary rise in nonwoven fibres.
Due to calcium-sodium exchange, Calcium ions which are vital for the clotting process to be successful are released into the wound, which ensures bleeding is stopped.
The dressing is very soft and conformable, so it conforms to wound contours, It also becomes softer and more intimate to the wound after gelling.
