BENEFITS OF ALTRAZEAL

BENEFITS OF ALTRAZEAL

Altrazeal has been designed to deliver a unique blend of properties that optimize the wound bed environment to promote superior healing

Altrazeal has been designed to deliver a unique blend of properties that optimize the wound bed environment to promote superior healing:
IDEAL DRESSING*: ALTRAZEAL PROPERTIES
Promotes wound healing
Provides an ideal wound environment that supports cellular function and tissue repair
Maintains a moist wound environment
Absorbs ~68% water of its hydrated mass*
Acceptable to the patient
Comfortable for the patient. Significantly improved patient comfort was evidenced in patients with split thickness skin graft donor sites**.
Flexible dressing contours to the wound bed.
Wound margin visibility and extended wear time enables wound inspection without necessarily inducing a dressing change
Provides a physical barrier
Fits, covers, and protects the entire wound surface

Permits gaseous exchange

Oxygen-permeable material

Nonadherance to wound
Powder aggregates and forms a matrix that seals the wound bed upon hydration with exudate or saline. It covers the wound bed but does not affect the intact skin around the wound and adheres to the wound bed without any adhesives
Permits easy removal without pain or trauma
Easily removed by saturating the dressing with saline and lifting it up with a pair of forceps. Dries and flakes off as the wound heals
Capable of absorbing excess exudate
Facilitates exudate management which is vital to reducing the risk of peri-wound maceration
Impermeable to microorganisms
Prevents exogenous bacteria from entering the wound*

Easy to use

Easy application and removal

Cost effective

Extended wear time helps reduce dressing changes and nursing interventions
