How does TheraHoney Gel Honey Dressing work?
Medline TheraHoney products contain 100% sterile, medical-grade Manuka honey that is derived from the pollen and nectar of the Leptospermum scoparium plant in New Zealand. The honeycomb is used and harvested only once, the honey is carefully filtered, irradiated and tested in a laboratory for high efficacy.
- The Role of Sugar in Autolytic Debridement: The 87% high sugar levels in TheraHoney result in osmotic activity, helps promote autolytic debridement to clear away necrotic tissue, reduce wound odor and maintain a moist wound environment conducive to wound healing.
- The Impact of Manuka Honey on Wound pH: Chronic, non-healing wounds mostly have an elevated alkaline environment. Lowering the pH can help in wound healing, and the use of Manuka Honey Dressings is associated with a statistically significant decrease in wound pH and a reduction in wound size.
- Reduced Necrotic Tissue and Wound Size: Using TheraHoney wound gel, wounds significantly improve in terms of necrotic tissue reduction and wound surface reduction over an average of 4 weeks.
The above illustration shows the way in which the osmotic action of Manuka honey draws exudate from subcutaneous tissue to the wound surface, removing debris, slough, and necrotic tissue.
