3M™ Tegaderm™ Alginate Ag - Silver Alginate Dressing

3M™ Tegaderm™ Alginate Ag is an antimicrobial, highly absorbent wound dressing available as a pad or rope that is composed of sterile calcium alginate, arboxymethylcellulose and an ionic silver complex (silver sodium hydrogen zirconium phosphate).

Tegaderm Alginate Ag dressing is an antimicrobial, highly absorbent wound dressing available as a pad or rope that is composed of sterile calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose and an ionic silver complex (silver sodium hydrogen zirco-nium phosphate). When the dressing comes into contact with wound exudate, it releases antimicrobial ionic silver which very effectively reduces the microbial load caused by a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria (MRSA and VRE). It can also be used for wounds requiring autolytic debridement.

    Benefits of the product include:
  • Silver ions released in the presence of exudate provide effective antimicrobial protection against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, helping to fight the infection
  • Sustained Antimicrobial protection for up to 7 days allows for longer wear time, increasing patient quality of life and reducing dressing changes
  • Ionic silver complex is not harmful to the patient, resulting in increased patient comfort and safety
  • Can also be used for wounds requiring autolytic debridement

  • Indications for Use
    Tegaderm Alginate Ag is indicated for use in the management of all moderate to heavily exuding partial to full thickness wounds where wounds are critically colonised (infected) or at increased risk of infection including:
  • post-operative wounds
  • trauma wounds (dermal lesions, trauma injuries or incisions)
  • leg ulcers
  • pressure ulcers
  • diabetic ulcers
  • graft and donor sites
  • cavity wounds
  • superficial and partial thickness burns
