This breakthrough product fights dangerous bacteria and staph infections like MRSA, E. Coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and Staphylococcus Aurues. The Algidex IV catheter dressing is a non-irritating self-activating small sterile circular patch of polyurethane foam coated with ionic silver alginate and maltodextrin matrix that absorbs moisture around the catheter wound site.

What makes Algidex different from other antimicrobial dressings? One of the main differences is that some other brands use topical antiseptics like Chlorhexadine or Betadine, which can be absorbed into your skin. Algidex is not absorbed into your body, thus reducing risks of systemic effects, skin irritation and life threatening allergic reactions that have been reported with the use of the above mentioned antiseptics.
