        Product Information

        AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer of Alginate Dressing.

        The StayGuard™ brand of Alginate Dressings is internationally distributed and recognized for reliable quality and exceptional value. With distribution across developed and developing markets alike, our products are uniquely positioned as the brand of choice for medical professionals.

        Alginate dressings are natural absorbent wound dressings that contain sodium and calcium fibers derived from seaweed. They come in the form of flat dressings that can be placed over open ulcers and rope dressings that are used for packing the wound, which can absorb 15 to 20 times their own weight in fluids and promote healing on multiple wound types, including but not limited to diabetic wounds, venous wounds, pressure ulcers, cavity wounds, and some bleeding wounds. Generally, alginates dressings are used to drain wet wounds. They can also be used to provide hemostasis.

        Alginate dressings are dry when initially placed on an open wound and become larger and more gel-like as they draw in fluids. This helps clear out the wound, prevents it from becoming dry, and protects it from harmful bacteria, which helps lower the risk of infection.

        Additional Information

        Alginate dressings are designed for use on draining wounds or wounds with excessive amounts of fluid. They should not be used on wounds that have very little drainage or they may dry them out, which slows the healing process. Although alginate dressings typically keep wounds moist for faster healing, they need to form a gel to do so. In some cases, this gel does not form, which increases the risk of having the dressing stick to the skin and cause irritation or damage.

        Alginates can be used in a variety of wound situations. With sloughy wounds that also produce exudate, the alginate dressing provides a moist cover to prevent the wound from drying out and allowing the wound to heal more quickly. Common wound situations where alginate dressing can be applied are:

        • Pressure ulcers;
        • Diabetic foot ulcers;
        • Cavity wounds;
        • Venous leg ulcers;
        • Post-operative wounds;
        • Trauma wounds;
        • Partial thickness burns.

        Most of the time, alginate dressings can be left unchanged for 5 to 7 days unless exudate capacity is reached. With infected wounds, the wound bed should be inspected daily.

        • If required, place a secondary dressing on top the alginate to hold it in place and to absorb excess fluid;
        • Inspect the dressing daily, examining the wound site daily if infected;
        • Change the bandage once every 5 to 7 days or when exudate leaks from the edges or into the secondary bandage;
        • When removing the alginate dressing, use saline to dampen it first and avoid damage to the the wound bed or granulation tissue;
        • If the dressing sticks to the wound, use saline irrigation to rinse.


        • Do not use alginate dressing on relatively dry wounds;
        • Do not use when underlying structures such as bones, tendons or ligaments are exposed;
        • Do not use on patients with sensitivity to calcium alginate or with other known allergic skin conditions.
