Algivon Plus Dressing 10cm x 10cm - Pack of 5 Single Dressings (Ref: CR4225)
Algivon Plus has reinforced alginate fibres enabling a sustained, slow release of honey whilst maintaining the integrity of the dressing. Algivon Plus 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.
Algivon may be applied to any wound but especially:
Pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, burns, graft sites and infected wounds.
Although the honey is not absorbed into the blood stream, we advise monitoring the blood glucose levels in 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 analgesia. The initial discomfort usually subsides, however if it does continue, discontinue use and irrigate the wound with saline solution.
Each dressing is individually wrapped and sterile.
