Derma Sciences Medihoney Hydrocolloid Wound Filler Paste

Brand/Manufacturer: DUMEX/DERMA SCIENCES

Derma Medihoney Wound Filler Paste is a 100% Leptospermum honey dressing for use on acute and chronic wounds. The Leptospermum honey is effective because it has a low pH value. The low pH promotes a moisture-balanced environment conducive to wound healing. Medihoney Paste is indicated for superficial to full thickness wounds and burns that are light to moderately draining. It is purified to be used in the treatment of wounds without risk of infection.

Medihoney Hydrocolloid Wound Filler Paste Highlights:

  • Low pH
  • Natural
  • Non-toxic
  • Kills harmful microorganisms

More On Medihoney Wound Filler Paste

Active Leptospermum Honey:

  • The most studied species of honey for the management of wounds and burns
  • Honey derived from the pollen and nectar of specific Leptospermum species of plant in New Zealand
  • Its unique healing properties have been shown in a randomized controlled study to promote significantly faster healing when compared to conventional dressings
  • It maintains its ability to assist in autolytic debridement even in the presence of wound fluid

How Medihoney Helps Promote Healing?

  • Promotes a moisture-balanced environment conducive to optimal wound healing in multiple etiologies
  • Multiple Mechanisms of Action (MOAs) help to manage and gain control over the wound environment
  • Supports autolytic debridement due to high osmotic potential
  • Can help to promote an increase in wound fluid, helping to liquefy necrotic tissue
  • Helps to lower pH levels within the wound (lowering the pH of a wound has been shown to have wound healing benefits)
  • Is non-toxic, natural, and has a long history of safe use in the care of wounds and burns
  • Easy to use, with the potential for extended application wear times

Role of Medihoney in Debridement:

  • Autolytic Debridement: During autolysis the body breaks down tissue or cells. A moist environment, created by Active Leptospermum Honey (ALH) dressings, aids the process of moisturizing and re-hydrating, thus loosening and liquefying necrotic tissue.
  • High Osmotic Potenial: ALH creates an osmotic effect, which occurs when the high sugar content of honey facilitates movement of fluid from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. Additional fluid is drawn from the deeper tissue to the wound surface. The increased flow of fluid helps the natural processes of body to cleanse debris and necrotic or devitalized tissue from the wound.
  • Reduction in pH: The failure of a chronic wound to heal has been correlated with alkaline pH levels. The surface pH of chronic wounds has been reported to range from 7.15 to 8.94. ALH has a low pH of 3.5 – 4.5, which helps to reduce the pH of the wound environment. It contributes to the acidic environment that promotes healing. Lowering the pH also aids the natural processes of body for removal of necrotic tissue.
