An absorbent sterile non-adherent wound contact dressing comprising calcium alginate (High M) fibres impregnated with Activon Medical which the honey gel complex prolongs the retention of honey at a wound site.
The products benefits include: Antibacterial - Unique non-peroxide factor in active Manuka honey, Osmotic effect - low water content actively draws fluid from the wound bed promoting autolytic debridement and inhibiting bacterial growth, Enhanced healing - Honey is rich in water soluble antioxidants and provides favourable conditions that promote granulation and epithelialisation, Odour reduction - Rapid reduction and elimination of wound odours, Absorbs exudate - Algivon forms an alginate/honey complex with absorbed exudate, Conformability to wound - The soft alginate fibres make the dressing flexible for ease of application to irregular wounds and Non-adherent - The honey-impregnated alginate will not adhere to the wound so become swell and become slippy when exudate is absorbed further preventing adherence to the wound.
Using the product: Algivon is placed (either side down) onto the wound surface, dressings can be placed side by side to cover large wound areas or cut to size ensuring that sharp scissors are used, depending on the tissue type within the wound bed and level of exudate your secondary dressing of choice could be a film dressing and/or bandage and in wounds with a high level of exudate an additional highly absorbent dressing can be introduced to help manage exudate.
