Cavidagel is clear amorphous hydrogel with alginate which – gently re-hydrates necrotic tissue – facilitating autolytic debridement – able to loosen and absorb slough and exudate
It can also be used to provide the optimum moist wound management environment during the later stages of wound closure.

Sterile hydrogel wound filler with alginate
How To Use
1. Rinse the wound with physiological saline or tap water. 2. Gently dry the skin around the wound. 3. The wound should not be filled to a higher level than the surrounding skin. 4. Cover with a secondary dressing. For low to medium exuding wounds, choose a hydrocolloid as a secondary dressing e.g. Pharmacoll® Comfort or Pharmacoll® Comfort Plus. For medium to highly exuding wounds, choose a highly absorbent and highly permeable dressing to cover e.g. Espuma® Comfort or Espuma® Comfort Plus. For slightly or non-exuding wounds, Cavdiagel® Ag could be covered with film dressing e.g. Protecfilm®. 5. To optimise cleansing of necrotic and sloughy wounds, it is recommended to change Cavidagel® Ag at least every 3rd day, due to the larger amount of exudate. In case of clean wounds, Cavidagel® Ag should be changed depending on the amount of exudate. 6. The gel can be removed from the wound by rinsing with physiological saline or tap water.
