Overview

Algivon Ribbon Alginate Dressing Impregnated honey 2.5cm x 20cm

Algivon Plus Ribbon can be applied to wounds as well as packing where you may ordinarily have to cut down an Algivon Plus dressing, reducing wastage.

Features

  • Manuka honey brings the following properties:
  • Anti-bacterial - kills harmful bacteria
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Eliminates odours without masking them
  • Osmotic effect, drawing harmful tissue away from the wound bed
  • Maintains the ideal moist wound healing environment
  • Ability to absorb exudate
  • Reinforced to maintain dressing integrity
  • Anatomically shaped to fit easily and effectively within cavities and sinuses

Product Description

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.

Indications

Algivon Plus Ribbon may be applied to any wound but especially:
Cavities, sinuses, pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, burns, graft sites, and infected wounds.

Use

Algivon Plus Ribbon is inserted into the wound site, cavity or sinus; ribbon can be cut to size ensuring that sharp scissors are used. Depending on the tissue type within the wound bed and level of exudate, your secondary dressing of choice could be a film dressing and/ or bandage. In wounds with a high level of exudate an additional highly absorbent dressing can be introduced to help manage exudate, we recommend Eclypse.

Store at room temperature. Due to the nature of honey, it can solidify at cold temperatures become more liquid at warm temperatures. If the product has hardened, warm between hands to soften before use. If the product has become too liquid, place in a colder place such as a fridge for a few minutes.
