Urgosorb is an absorbent dressing combining calcium alginate fibres with hydrocolloid particles.
Mode of action
When in contact with exudate, sodium-calcium ion exchange takes place between the wound and the dressing, UrgoSorb gels and maintains the moist environment favourable for the healing process. UrgoSorb absorbs the exudate, softens and drains any necrotic debris.
Through platelet activation, Urgosorb dressing promotes primary haemostasis of acute and chronic bleeding wounds.
