Description of the Derma Sciences MEDIHONEY Honeycolloid Dressing 2in x 2in, 10/bx
Active Leptospermum Honey content - 80%
Two versions: Adhesive and Non-adhesive.
The adhesive version is occlusive like a traditional hydrocolloid, having a thin film backing and adhesive border.
The non-adhesive version is not occlusive, and requires a secondary dressing to hold in place.
Both versions absorb light to moderate amounts of exudates.
The honeycolloid pad will form a gel as it warms up with body temperature and as it comes into contact with wound fluid. Usage suggestions:
The adhesive version is an ideal dressing for lightly draining.
Stage II and III Pressure Ulcers, as well as Skin Tears that can be managed with an adhesive dressing.
The non-adhesive version can be used similarly to an alginate or a hydrocolloid paste to either cover or fill a partial-to-full thickness wound.
