What Are the Usage Scenarios of Alginate Wound Dressing?

At present, the alginate wound dressing has become a widely accepted high-tech medical material. Alginate wound dressings are widely used in wound care, especially in wounds with a lot of exudate. For relatively dry wounds, the dressing can be moistened with normal saline and then covered on the wound surface in clinical application.

I. Alginate wound dressing is used for lower limb ulcer wounds

Lower limb ulcers usually occur in elderly people with mobility problems. Due to poor blood flow, skin tissue lacks essential nutrients and ulcers form. The formation process of this kind of wound is slow, and the damage to the physiological function of the skin is great. In addition, due to the poor physique of the elderly, the wound healing process is slow, and there is generally more exudate in lower limb ulcer wounds. Alginate wound dressings have high hygroscopicity, and they can form gel after hygroscopicity to perform the gel blocking property, so they are especially suitable for the nursing of lower extremity ulcer wounds. The alginate wound dressing generally used as a layer in direct contact with the wound to reduce the patient's pain and secondary bleeding of the wound during dressing removal. Alginate wound dressings can be applied to the wound with pressure bandages.

II. Alginate wound dressing used for diabetic foot ulcer wounds

Foot infections of diabetic patients are mostly caused by trauma. The high sugar state leads to the decline of the body's immunity, and patients are prone to infection. Therefore, foot ulcers are easy to occur in diabetic patients after foot injury. Alginate wound dressing is converted into gel after absorbing wound exudate, and it has a high ability of exudate absorption and moisture retention on the wound surface of exudate diabetic foot ulcer, which promotes wound healing and effectively inhibits bacterial growth. The dressing can maintain a moist environment and keep air flow on the wound surface, creating a favorable environment for wound healing. Alginate wound dressing used for diabetic foot ulcer can not only relieve the pain of patients and reduce their economic burden, but the easy nursing process can effectively avoid bacterial infection.

III. Alginate wound dressing used in nasal surgery

Nasal packing is an important measure in the treatment of nasal bleeding and prevention of postoperative bleeding, adhesion or restenosis after nasal sinus surgery. Alginate wound dressings become gelatinous when they meet sodium in blood or wounds. Alginate wound dressings With good biocompatibility and hydrophilicity, Alginate wound dressings can absorb a large amount of exudate, promote necrotic tissue shedding, clean the wound, accelerate wound healing and epithelial repair. Especially in nasal surgery, they can accelerate the adhesion and aggregation of platelets and red blood cells, promote hemostasis, and reduce the pain of patients when forming colloid on the wound, so alginate wound dressings are suitable for the nursing of nasal surgery wound. The results of clinical application of alginate wound dressings show that there is less bleeding during tamponade and extraction, which can relieve nasal pain and postoperative nasal mucosa edema.
