The power of nature's best with the reassurance of science and quality standard approvals.

Wounds can be serious. You deserve the confidence of using a proper wound grade product.

Your ready to use, sterile, specialist medical fiber dressing impregnated with medical grade Antibacterial Manuka Honey (which has differences from the honey found in jars).

Medihoney® HCS is an all in one dressing combining the unique properties of medical grade Manuka honey with a hydrogel sheet containing superabsorbent polymers.

You get all the wound healing benefits of true medical grade manuka honey. 

Your skin re-growth is improved from the moist, sterile environment.

An osmotic effect occurs, pulling serum from body into wound.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • 63% active Manuka* honey offers proven antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions
  • An all in one low profile dressing (adhesive version) ensures ease of application, suitable under compression
  • Gentle release of honey into the wound provides a low pH environment and autolytic debridement, encouraging faster wound healing
  • Absorption of exudate into the dressing is as a solid gel, thus maximises wear time and minimising dressing changes
  • Highly flexible, transparent dressing offers a soothing and cooling effect on application, improving patient comfort
  • Atraumatic removal minimises disruption to the wound, reducing pain
  • Can be cut to treat different shaped wounds and around exit tube sites

Comvita/Derma sciences Medihoney HCS dressings are genuinely CE marked (no. 0120). (Derma Sciences Medihoney is the medical brand of Comvita).

Pack of 10 dressings, each being 6cm x 6cm (2.4ins x 2.4ins)

You can easily cut them to size to fit the wound area.

INDICATIONS

  • You can change dressings easier as the honey doesn't stick to the wound. (No more searing pain for you - less disturbing of new tissue growth - very important!)

  • Reduces the smell that comes from wounds and ulcers, much more pleasant for yourself and those around you.

  • Reduces scarring of your skin.

    A 15-year-old female patient developed severe right-sided facial cellulitis with vesicular and ulcerative lesions measuring 8cm x 8cm with a depth ranging from 0.1cm to 0.3cm. The wound bed comprised 100% slough or hyperpigmented eschar.
    There were multiple full-thickness and partial-thickness open wounds scattered over the right side of face with oedema and erythema. Tests revealed no clear aetiology to explain the infection.

    1.   2.   3.   4.

    1: Before application
    2: At start of therapy with Medihoney® HCS
    3: 4 days after the start of therapy. All eschar removed with 50% slough remaining and no residual crusting
    4: 4 weeks after start of therapy, all slough removed and the wounds were almost completely granulated or epithelialised

    This is a pack of 10 individual dressings.

    Each dressing measures 6cm x 6cm (2.4in x 2.4in) and is in an individual sealed wrapper, maintaining its sterile status.

    Can be used with:
     

  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers
  • Leg Ulcers (venous, arterial and mixed aetiology ulcers)
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • 1st and 2nd degree burns
  • Donor sites
  • Traumatic Wounds
  • Surgical and post op wounds
  • Skin tears
  • Suitable for neonatal and paediatric patients

When it comes to wounds, whether leg ulcers, surgical wounds or other, for topical application it is important to use a proper medical grade manuka honey.

Importantly this has been produced, tested and verified to a different and stricter standard than the jars of honey. 

Not only does this ensure the honey does contain the appropriate extra antibacterial properties, but that it has been sterilised too.

Medical grade honey has also been through a finer filtering process, eg taking out smaller pollen granules and other things that could potentially disturb a wound.

Did you know?

- Comvita have their own specialist apiary (beekeeping unit) for producing their medical grade manuka honey. This supplies for both the Comvita Manukacare and Medihoney dressing products. Thus the complete process can be better controlled from the cleanliness of the beehives right through to the product you are applying to your wound.

Depending on the size of the wound you are applying to, cut each dressing into half or quarters (or as suits your case) in order to get more uses from each dressing.

For leg ulcers Medihoney HCS Dressings are able to be used in conjunction with compression bandaging.
