Alginate dressing is a gel-forming dressing, which can turn into a gel after encountering wound exudate and has a good function of absorbing exudate and maintaining a moist environment. When it encounters a liquid rich in sodium ions, calcium and sodium ions will be exchanged, calcium ions are released, and sodium ions combine with alginic acid to form a hydrophilic gel-like substance that helps the wound maintain a moist environment. Alginate dressings have a strong liquid absorption capacity, which can absorb more than their own weight. Therefore, the antimicrobial alginate dressing can be used for wounds with moderate to severe exudation.
Moisture therapy is a method of using alginate dressings and medicinal solutions to keep the wound moist under the guidance of the theory of wound moist environment healing.
In modern view, wound healing places special emphasis on providing a moist environment for wound healing. Antimicrobial alginate dressings can do just that, as they can quickly absorb exudate and prevent it from returning to the wound, allowing the wound to heal in a moist environment and alleviating the patient's pain, and are worthy of clinical promotion.
