What is MEDIHONEY HCS Surgical?

MEDIHONEY HCS SURGICAL ADHESIVE SHEET DRESSING with LEPTOSPERMUM HONEY is a moist wound dressing made of Leptospermum Honey (+15) in a combination with a hydrogel colloidal gelling agent surrounded by an adhesive border. The gelling agent is contained within the dressing mass. As wound exudate is absorbed, the dressing - which has a low pH and high osmolarity - forms a gel. This assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing, aids and supports autolytic debridement, and allows for non-traumatic removal. The product is an occlusive dressing, and does not require a secondary dressing.

What are the indications?

Under the supervision of a healthcare professional, MEDIHONEY HCS SURGICAL ADHESIVE SHEET DRESSING with LEPTOSPERMUM HONEY are indicated for the management of non-draining to lightly exuding wound: by providing a moist environment, which is conducive to wound healing and aids and supports autolytic debridement. These dressings are indicated for the management of the following:

  • Surgical wounds
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers, alterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology)
  • Pressure ulcers / sores (partial and full thickness)
  • 1st and 2nd degree partial thickness burns
  • Donor sites, traumatic wounds

What are the contraindications?

MEDIHONEY HCS SURGICAL ADHESIVE SHEET DRESSING with LEPTOSPERMUM HONEY is not indicated for:

  • third degree burns
  • Patients with a known sensitivity to honey

PRECAUTIONS

  • If the dressing is not easily removed, soak with sterile saline or water until it is removed without difficulty.
  • Due to the dressing low pH, some patients may notice slight transient stinging. If stinging persists and cannot be managed with an analgesic, remove dressing, cleanse area , and discontinue use of MEDIHONEY dressing
  • During initial use of the dressing (depending on wound exudate levels, interstitial fluid, and edema surrounding the wound), the dressing's high osmolarity may contribute to increased exudate.
  • This can be managed by adjusting the frequency of dressing change according to the level of exudate.
  • During the healing process, due to the autolytic debridement it is common for non-viable tissue to be removed from the wound resulting in an initial increase in wound size. Although an initial increase in size may be attributed to the normal non-viable tissue, consult a healthcare professional if the wound continues to grow larger after the first few dressing changes.
  • After removing the dressing, if some HCS Sheet material remain and is not easily removed, soak with sterile saline or water until it is removed without difficulty.
  • Consult a healthcare professional if you see signs of infection, which can include increased redness, increased pain, increased wound drainage, increased skin irritation, and changes in wound color and/or odor.
  • Do not use this dressing with any other wound care products, other than those listed in this package insert, without first consulting a healthcare professional.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • Prior to application of MEDIHONEY HCS SURGICAL ADHESIVE SHEET DRESSING with LEPTOSPERMUM HONEY, cleanse the wound area as necessary.
  • Use an appropriate number of MEDIHONEY HCS SURGICAL ADHESIVE DRESSINGS with LEPTOSPERMUM HONEY to cover the entire surgical wound. Using the ruler provided on the release liner, the dressing may be cut with sterile scissors and additional dressings may be overlapped on top to accommodate longer wounds. The outer edge of the dressing should extend at least 1.9cm beyond the wound edges. Discard the cut , unused portion of the dressing.
  • Open pouch and remove dressing. Remove bottom liners (marked “1“) from dressing, exposing the wound contact surface of the dressing.
  • Position dressing so that the center island completely covers the wound area, and apply. Smooth all edges and corners to ensure that dressing is properly adhered to skin.
  • Remove top plastic liners (marked “2“).
  • If the wound exudate increases, placement of a barrier cream or ointment (compatible with adhesive dressings) around the periwound area can help to lengthen the wear time of the dressing and prevent tissue maceration.

DRESSING CHANGE AND REMOVAL

  • Dressing change frequency will depend on the condition of the patient as well as the level of wound exudate.
  • Reapply when MEDIHONEY HCS Surgical ADHESIVE SHEET DRESSING with LEPTOSPERMUM HONEY has reached its absorbent capacity or as directed by a wound care professional.
  • Remove the dressing from the wound bed gently by pressing down on the skin with one hand and carefully lifting an edge of the dressing with your other hand. This edge can then either be stretched slightly or rolled gently to release the rest of the dressing.
  • Upon removal, some residual hydrogen/colloidal material from the HCS dressing may be left behind on the wound bed. This material should be cleansed away as part of the normal cleansing process between dressing changes.
  • Cleanse the wound bed prior to application of new dressing.
