Derma Medihoney Hydrogel Dressing with Leptospermum Honey is primarily used for the treatment of first and second degree burns and is also a first choice to help manage chronic and stalled wounds. Medihoney Hydrogel Dressings can also be used to treat acute wounds. Formulated with Manuka Honey and hydrogel, Medihoney Hydrogel HCL Dressings do not adhere to the wound bed and help provide a moist wound environment to promote healing and to help clean and debride necrotic tissue.

  • About Medihoney
    MEDIHONEY is the global leading line of medical-grade honey products for the management of wounds and burns.
    Derived from the Leptospermum species of plant in New Zealand, these unique dressings have properties which are beneficial throughout all phases of wound healing. MEDIHONEY offers a full line of dressing solutions, providing versatility for varying wound and wound management needs.
    What is MEDIHONEY with Active Leptospermum Honey?
    MEDIHONEY is an advanced wound care dressing that is supported by over 234 pieces of evidence demonstrating its clinical ability to promote the removal of necrotic tissue and advance a wound toward healing. In a randomized controlled trial, the mean healing time was significantly faster for wounds treated with MEDIHONEY impregnated dressings when compared to conventional dressings.

  • More features:
    -
    Medihoney dressings are effective on hard-to-heal wounds and burns, in addition to helping to debride wounds and keeping wound beds clean of necrotic tissue. Because they contain a very high percentage of Leptospermum honey.
    - Medihoney dressings are able to work in the presence of wound fluid, blood, and tissue, thus promoting an optimal healing environment. Clinicians have successfully used Medihoney on a variety of wounds, and in a variety of settings.
    - Additionally, Medihoney has been used successfully along with other advanced wound care modalities, including being used before, during, and after negative pressure applications, as well as being used as cover dressings for skin grafts and skin substitutes.

  • Application and Removal
    - Wash hands thoroughly
    - Apply gloves
    - Assess the wound. Look for signs of healing. Also 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)
    - Choose a MEDIHONEY dressing that is appropriate for the amount of drainage. (MEDIHONEY Paste or MEDIHONEY Gel for light to moderate exudates, wounds that are hard to dress, or those that require a wound gel or paste; MEDIHONEY HCS for dry to moderate exudates that are superficial to partial thickness wounds; MEDIHONEY Calcium Alginate dressing for moderate to heavy exudates; MEDIHONEY Honeycolloid dressing for light to moderate exudates)
    - Apply the appropriate MEDIHONEY dressing to fit the wound. The MEDIHONEY Calcium Alginate and Non-adhesive HCS or Honeycolloid 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

  • Contraindications
    Do not use MEDIHONEY:
    - On third degree burns n With patients that have a known sensitivity to honey or any other component parts specific to each dressing (please see package insert for more information).
    - To control heavy bleeding 

  • Precautions
    - If the dressing is not easily removed, soak with sterile saline or water until it is removed without difficulty.
    - Due to the 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 dressing, cleanse 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.
