How To Use Medihoney Hydrogel Adhesive Dressing?

Application and Removal of Medihoney Dressing:

  • Wash hands thoroughly
  • Apply gloves
  • Assess the wound
    • Look for signs of healing
    • Look for any signs of increased redness, pain, swelling, or heat within or around the wound
  • Cleanse the wound and skin around the wound with sterile saline, sterile water, or other safe wound cleansers
  • Dry the skin around the wound by patting gently with gauze
  • Protect the skin around the wound to avoid maceration. Apply a skin protectant barrier wipe or barrier ointment. (An initial increase in exudates may occur as a result of the highly osmotic effect of Medihoney)
  • Medihoney Hydrogel dressing for light to moderate exudates 
  • Apply the appropriate Medihoney dressing to fit the wound 
  • Medihoney can be cut to fit within the wound edges
  • Apply an absorbent cover dressing (XTRASORB super absorbent dressings are recommended due to the highly osmotic effect of MEDIHONEY)
  • Dressing change: Remove the dressing gently. If the dressing is difficult to remove, moisten with saline or water. Discard the old dressing in a disposal bag

Medihoney Wound Dressing Precautions:

  • If the Medihoney Wound dressing is not easily removed, soak with sterile saline or water until it is removed without difficulty.
  • Due to the adhesive dressing's low pH, some patients may notice a slight transient stinging. If stinging does not stop or persists and cannot be managed with an analgesic, remove the dressing, cleanse the area, and discontinue the use of Medihoney dressing
  • During initial use of the dressing (depending on wound exudate levels, interstitial fluid, and edema surrounding the wound), the dressings high osmotic potential may contribute to increased exudate, which could lead to maceration if the excess moisture is not managed appropriately. Manage additional moisture by adding an absorptive cover dressing and/or adjusting the frequency of dressing change. Protect the peri-wound skin by applying a skin barrier protectant to the surrounding skin.
  • During the healing process, it is common for non-viable tissue to be removed from the wound resulting in an initial increase in wound size. Although an initial increase in wound size may be attributed to the normal removal of non-viable tissue, consult a healthcare professional if the wound continues to grow larger after the first few dressing changes.
