Sorbsan® Topical Wound Dressing provides a non-adherent interface with the wound bed. It allows for exchange of gases to and from the wound surface and is strongly hydrophilic and wicks exudates into the rest of the wound dressing. It provides a physical barrier to help decrease inadvertent contamination of the wound.
Note From MetroMedicalOnline's Customer Service Department:
It is important to always contact your physician or wound specialist before starting any wound care therapy.
Additional Information as Provided by the Manufacturer
Sorbsan® Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface that is conductive to granulation tissue formation, rapid epithelialization and healing.
For wounds prone to bleeding such as donor sites and wounds which have been mechanically or surgically debrided, calcium alginate is absorptive and has been shown to aid in the control of minor bleeding.

MetroMedicalOnline offers a variety of wound care products. Always contact your physician before starting any wound care treatment.
MetroMedicalOnline offers high quality Pacifica Exam Gloves to be worn while cleaning the wound and changing dressings. After consulting your physician, products such as Blairex Sterile Wound Wash Saline or Sea-Clens are good options for wound cleansing. Many of our customers have reported excellent results using Puracyn Skin and Wound Cleanser OTC (formerly Microcyn OTC). Puracyn OTC is an innovative new approach to wound care promoting faster healing time. It is a non-irritating, pH-balanced wound cleanser for minor cuts, burns, irritations, and superficial abrasions of the skin.
After the wound has closed, proven scar treatments such as Cica-Care, Mepiform, or Kelo-Cote will improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation. Always consult your physician or wound care specialist before starting any wound care treatment program.
We also carry supplies for compression wrapping such as Comprilan, Elastoplast, and Jobst Cover-Roll.
