Maxorb Extra's non-woven alginate and carboxylmethylcellulose (CMC) fiber combination interacts with wound exudate to form a gel, providing for a moist healing environment. Compared to previous Maxorb dressings, Maxorb Extra has greater loft and fluid handling capacity-25% more than before, and more than the other alginate dressing on the market. The added presence of CMC in Maxorb Extra improves the gelling and fluid-handling ability as well as adding improved strength. The pad will not wick exudate laterally, reducing the potential for delicate peri-wound tissue damage. The gelatinous pad may be easily lifted in one piece from the wound bed. Dressings are supplied in single pouches or lidded tray. The rope version's lidded tray. The rope version's lidded tray keeps the fibers from compressing. As a result, fluid handling capacity is increased. 2" x 2" pad.
