The calcium-alginate dressing with excellent conformability.
Sorbalgon is made of calcium alginate fibers which form a hydrophilic non-adherent gel in contact with the sodium salts contained in blood and wound exudate. The gel-forming properties promote the wound healing process.
Basically for the treatment of external wounds of any type, but especially suitable for the treatment of bleeding and exudating wounds, since the gel-forming properties promote the wound healing process as e.g. in Ulcus cruris venosum, decubitus, abscesses, furuncles, burns and for difficult-to-treat wounds in accident or tumour surgery; for deep wounds and fistula passages Sorbalgon T is available.
