Medisorb A

Sterile calcium alginate dressing


Medisorb A is a sterile dressing designed to be applied directly to the wound. Contains calcium alginate.

Mechanism of action 

The fibres of the dressing react with wound exudate to form a delicate gel that creates a moist environment and promotes healing. The gel allows for gas to permeate and protects the wound from trauma that may be caused by external dressings. At the same time, it prevents lateral leakage of exudate and protects the skin from maceration. Medisorb A is useful for dressing both superficial and deep wounds with moderate to high volumes of exudate. By adjusting to the shape of the wound, the dressing fills it well and protects it from drying out. During dressing changes, the gel that remains in the wound can be easily rinsed out using 0.9% saline solution. Medisorb A minimises the risk of trauma when changing dressings; as a result, changes are painless and do not affect the wound healing process.


Medisorb A is a highly absorbent dressing for the treatment of wounds with moderate to high volumes of exudate. Medisorb A can be used to treat wounds such as pressure sores, lower leg ulcers, diabetic feet, graft donor sites and mechanical skin injuries.

Directions for use

Use strictly as directed in the package insert and under the supervision of a physician or nurse, who will ensure that the dressing is applied aseptically. Read the directions for use before applying the dressing. Dressing should be changed as soon as the surface of Medisorb A has completely turned to gel. The interval between dressing changes depends on the condition of the wound and the exudate volume. The dressing must be secured using a secondary dressing. It may be applied to infected wounds only when prescribed by and under the supervision of a physician and during appropriate antibacterial treatment. If the wound is infected with anaerobic microorganisms, it is not recommended to cover Medisorb A with occlusive dressings.

Additional remarks

In the early stages of treatment with Medisorb A, the wound may increase in size. This is a normal reaction and is caused by the debridement of the wound edges in the early stages of healing. The effects of treatment using Medisorb A may be less than expected if the dressing is applied to a very dry and/or necrotic wound. If there is no improvement within 4 to 6 weeks of using Medisorb A, the situation should be diagnosed and a treatment consistent with standard care should be administered.


Medisorb A should not be used to dress surgical grafts or third-degree burns. Occasionally, a mild and usually transient sensation of pulling may occur soon after application. Moisten the wound with sterile 0.9% saline solution immediately before application to prevent this type of discomfort. Concurrent use of Medisorb A and agents such as antiseptics or antibiotics is not recommended, since Medisorb A may reduce or inhibit the beneficial effects of these agents. Do not use if the package is damaged. Do not use past the expiry date. Protect from sunlight and moisture. Do not reuse the product, as this is associated with a very high risk of infection.
