MEDIHONEY® Calcium Alginate Dressing contains 100% active Leptospermum honey impregnated onto a calcium alginate pad. Supports removal of necrotic tissue and aids in wound healing. For wounds with moderate to heavy amounts of exudate or when light packing is needed. Non-traumatic removal.
 Benefits
  • As wound fluid enters the dressing, the honey is released while the dressing forms a gel
  • • Maintains effectiveness even in the presence of wound fluid, blood and tissue
  • • Easy to use with potential for extended wear times depending on exudate
  • • Promotes a moisture-balanced environment conducive to wound healing
  • • Can be used before, during and after negative pressure applications
  • • Can be used as a cover dressing for skin grafts or substitutes
  • • Helps stalled wounds progress toward healing
  • • Osmotic potential draws fluid through the wound to the surface, helping to liquefy non-viable tissue
  • • Low pH of 3.5-4.5 - maintaining more acidic pH levels within the wound environment can help to keep a wound on track towards healing
  • • Non-toxic, natural and safe
