A Scientifically Engineered Dressing That Fits

Pour granules and cover the entire wound bed.
Granules absorb moisture and form an oxygen permeable matrix.
Dressing fits and seals the wound.
It also protects the wound from microorganisms.
Dressing flakes off as the wound heals.

Mechanism of Action: Transforming Powder

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, allowing the wound to heal without disturbing the wound bed with frequent dressing changes. 

 

Application / Removal Guide: Low to Moderately Exuding Wounds

Step 1: Select a low to moderately exudating wound.
Step 2: Prepare and clean the wound bed.
Step 3: Apply Altrazeal to entire wound bed to form a thin, uniform layer. If required, smooth using spatula to form an even matrix.
Step 4: Accelerate dressing transformation with sterile saline or similar solution.
Step 5: Altrazeal does not necessarily require a secondary dressing. Apply a secondary dressing if deemed clinically necessary.
Step 6 (REMOVAL): Saturate with saline and gently lift away with forceps.

Altrazeal works best on clean wounds with mild to moderate exudation.
