Clean the wound with sterile water or saline solution and dry the surrounding skin gently.
Choose the right size of dressing according to wound area. If necessary, cut dressing to size using sterile scissors.
A secondary dressing is necessary when using calcium alginates.
Before removing this product during a dressing change, dampen dressing with sterile water or saline solution to lower the risk of damaging the surrounding skin.
When applied to a wound there will be an ion-exchange between the calcium in the dressing and sodium from the exudate, forming a soluble calcium/sodium alginate gel. The free calcium ions in the wound will amplify the clotting cascade, and it has been reported that the calcium ions reduce the bleeding during various surgical interventions. The interaction with the wound exudates will create a protective gel that has occlusive, nonadherent and moisturizing properties.

LUOFUCON® Alginate Dressing is a sterilized wound dressing which is composed of calcium alginate, a gelatinous and water-insoluble fibers derived from seaweed. When in contact with a wound, the calcium alginate in the dressing reacts with sodium chloride from the wound. This turns the dressing into a hydrophilic gel-like covering over the wound and maintains a physiologically moist environment that promotes wound healing and the formation of granulation tissue. This Alginate Dressing is very useful for moderately to heavily exudating wounds.
Excellent natural dressing for use on moderately to heavily exuding wounds.
Mechanism of Action
Tips for using
Do not use this product to dry wound.
LUOFUCON® Alginate Dressing is not recommended to be applied to wounds that need surgical to achieve hemostasis.
Remark: Special specifications according to the order of the contract.
