Product Description

Exudate Management For moderately to heavily exuding wounds

  • KALTOSTAT dressing is an absorbent, calcium sodium alginate (80% Ca and 20% Na) with a
  • high Guluronic acid content. When in contact with wound exudate, calcium ions in the dressing
  • exchange with sodium ions in the exudate causing the dressing to transform from a dry, fibrous
  • state to a firm, moist gel. The dressing provides a moist environment helping to create optimal
  • wound healing conditions and maintains its integrity allowing for easy, atraumatic removal.
  • KALTOSTAT dressing is also designed to promote haemostasis, providing a matrix to support
  • blood clot formation


  • Carefully cleanse the wound with saline and dry surrounding skin.
  • KALTOSTAT dressing should be folded or cut to the shape of the wound and applied dry directly
  • onto the wound. For moderately exuding wounds, Versiva XC, DuoDERM or CombiDERM
  • dressings, amongst others, can be used as a secondary dressings over Kaltostat dressing.
  • If highly exuding, a secondary absorbent pad should be used for additional absorbency andsecured in place.
