Nuvashield AG™ silver calcium alginate dressings are a primary wound dressing made of calcium alginate containing silver. In the presence of wound exudate, the sodium ions from the exudate take the place of the silver ions, releasing the silver ions.
As wound exudate is absorbed, the alginate forms a gel, which assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing, and allows intact removal. The silver ions released in the presence of wound fluid protect the dressing from bacterial colonization, and provides an effective barrier to bacterial penetration. Nuvashield AG™ dressing provides an antimicrobial effect lasting up to three days. Does not contain natural rubber latex.

- Remove prior dressings entirely.
- Rinse the wound. Normal saline or cleansing agent is preferred, but luke-warm water may be used in its place.
- Pat the wound with a clean towel to remove excess fluids/water.
- Apply Nuvashield AG™ dressing by rolling from one end to the other to reduce trapped air and maximize contact.
- Cover the dressing with two pieces of the supplied sterile gauze.
- Wrap one roll of gauze bandage around the wound and dressings.
- Secure dressing, gauze, and bandage in place with medical tape.
- Repeat the process each subsequent day until wound supplies are exhausted or the doctor tells you that you can stop. Please note if the bandage should get wet, remove the dressing and reapply new dressing.
