Pharmacist Pick
I recommend this Medihoney Calcium Alginate Dressing because of its versatility and its exceptional healing properties. From ulcers to burns, Medihoney provides you with a moist healing environment that is great for hard-to-heal wounds. The honey itself comes from New Zealand, and when combined with the Calcium Alginate, it forms a gel that is a perfect environment to help your body heal. This dressing is antimicrobial, yet non-toxic so it is highly tolerable by all patients.

Details
MEDIHONEY® dressings, a unique line of dressings containing Active Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) Honey from New Zealand, possess unique qualities that make them ideal for the management of chronic and acute wounds and burns. A strong and growing evidence base – including several large scale randomized controlled studies – have shown that MEDIHONEY® dressings are effective on hard-to-heal wounds and burns, in addition to helping to debride wounds and keeping wound beds clean of necrotic tissue.


Because they contain a very high percentage of Leptospermum honey, MEDIHONEY® dressings are able to work in the presence of wound fluid, blood, and tissue, thus promoting an optimal healing environment.


MEDIHONEY® is naturally antimicrobial, yet non-toxic, making it well tolerated by all patients. If you are suffering from a particularly difficult, open wound, give MEDIHONEY® a try. Many patients have been astonished by the results.


Clinicians have successfully used MEDIHONEY® on a variety of wounds, and in a variety of settings. Additionally, MEDIHONEY® has been used successfully along with other advanced wound care modalities, including being used before, during, and after negative pressure applications, as well as being used as cover dressings for skin grafts and skin substitutes.


MEDIHONEY dressings provide a moist, occlusive environment conducive to optimal wound healing. As wound exudate is absorbed, the alginate forms a gel, making the dressings easy to remove without disrupting the wound bed. The dressings are indicated for the management of moderate to heavily exuding wounds such as:
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Venous stasis leg ulcers
  • Arterial leg ulcers
  • Leg ulcers of mixed etiology
  • Pressure ulcers (I-IV)
  • 1st and 2nd degree burns
  • Donor sites
  • Traumatic and surgical wounds

Due to their versatility and lack of toxicity, MEDIHONEY dressings can be used in all stages of wound healing, and can also be used as an important component of wound bed preparation. As such, placing these dressings as the cornerstones of a wound care formulary can take a great deal of the guess-work out of wound management.
