Medline Maxorb Extra AG+ CMC Alginate Dressing, 2" x 2" is a highly absorbent, non-woven pad composed of a high G (guluronic acid) calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), and ionic silver. Exposure to wound exudate dissolves the silver and stimulates the release of silver ions. As more fluid is absorbed over time, more silver ions are released, creating a controlled-release antimicrobial effect. It has a non-adherent surface that makes it easy to remove, reducing the risk of further trauma. The dressing is designed to provide superior absorbency, cushioning, and protection for wounds. It also reduces odor by providing an antibacterial barrier to combat bacteria absorbed in the wound exudate. Maxorb Extra AG+ CMC Alginate Dressing is an ideal choice for managing exudating wounds and helping to promote faster healing.
