Calcium Alginate Dressing


Nuvashield™ calcium alginate dressings are indicated for the management of minor conditions such as lacerations, abrasions, skin tears and minor burns.

Under the care of a healthcare professional, Nuvashield™ is indicated for the management of full and partial thickness wounds including leg ulcers, pressure ulcer, diabetic foot ulcers and surgical wounds.

When exudate comes into contact with Nuvashield™, it forms a
hydrophilic gel that remains in intimate contact with the wound surface, helping to create and maintain a moist wound environment. Faster, cleaner dressing changes result in less nursing time because once gelled the dressing stays stronger, longer.

  • Absorbs exudate from wound and creates a protective cushioning gel and optimal moist healing environment.
  • Protective gel binds exudate and helps prevent skin maceration.
  • Can be used on infected wounds.
  • Absorbs up to 17 times its own weight in fluid
  • Unique composition and weaving pattern help provide a simplified one piece removal.


  • Pressure Ulcers (III,IV)
  • Leg Ulcers
  • Diabetic Wounds
  • Donor Sites
  • Moderate to Heavy Draining
  • Partial and Full Thickness Wounds
