Algivon is a soft alginate dressing impregnated with 100% medical grade Manuka honey. The alginate fibres enable a sustained, slower release of honey. Algivon is an ideal choice for wetter wounds as the alginate has a small capacity to absorb, meaning the honey isn’t washed away with exudate therefore staying at the wound site for longer. The dressing is very soft and conformable, ideal for cavities and debriding and de-sloughing large areas of necrotic and sloughy tissue.

Indications
Algivon is an ideal choice for wetter wounds as the alginate has a small capacity to absorb, meaning the honey isn't washed away with exudate therefore staying at the wound site for longer. The dressing is very soft and conformable, ideal for cavities and debriding and de-sloughing large areas of necrotic and sloughy tissue.

Contra-indications
Although the honey is not absorbed into the blood stream, we advise monitoring the levels of patients with diabetes. Do not use if allergic to bee venom. Discomfort can be experienced when honey is applied, depending on sensitivity of the wound it may be necessary to consider an appropriate level of analgesic. The initial discomfort usually subsides, however if it does continue, discontinue use and irrigate the wound with saline solution.

Presentation
Each dressing is individually wrapped and sterile.
