WHAT IS ALTRAZEAL?

*Data on file

Mechanism of Action: Transforming Powder

Clean wound with saline, pour granules to cover moistened wound bed. Hydrate with saline if needed.

Oxygen-permeable granules absorb moisture to form a moist skin-like matrix that allows excess exudate to flow via vapor transpiration.

The matrix contours to the wound bed. Simple non-adherent dressings may be used in areas of more friction or exudation.

The matrix forms a moist, non-occlusive barrier to help prevent the entry of bacteria.

More powder may be added as needed. Dressing dries and flakes off as the wound heals.

A Scientifically Engineered Dressing That Fits

Altrazeal® is a patented powder dressing specially engineered to cover and protect the wound and to provide an ideal moist wound healing environment that supports cellular function and tissue repair. Its non-resorbable, sterile granules aggregate when hydrated with saline to form a moist, flexible, oxygen permeable film that fits and seals the wound.

 

The skin-like barrier serves many functions that promote healthy granulation tissue growth:

  1. seals and protects the entire wound surface

  2. allows oxygen transportation

  3. manages exudate through vapor transpiration 

  4. prevents penetration of exogenous bacteria*
     

Altrazeal® enables extended wear time of up to 30 days, allowing the wound to heal without disturbing the wound bed with frequent dressing changes. It is particularly helpful in the management of complex, painful, and difficult-to-dress wounds.

 

APPLICATION GUIDE

Step 1: Clean wound, moisten with saline and pour powder to cover the entire wound bed and margins.

Step 2: Powder transforms on hydration into a matrix that allows oxygen and exudate flow but prevents bacterial penetration.

Step 3: Secure with simple secondary dressings if required. Change secondary dressing when wet or soiled. Add powder as needed.
