Activon Tulle - 100% Manuka Honey

Activon Tulle - 100% Manuka Honey

Product Description

Activon Tulle is a knitted viscose mesh primary dressing impregnated with 100% Medical Grade Manuka honey to create a moist healing environment and effectively eliminate wound odour whilst providing antibacterial action. The mesh material is conformable and non-adherent, allowing good wound coverage while reducing pain and trauma on dressing change.

Activon Tulle is ideally suited to debriding and de-sloughing necrotic wounds to create an optimal healing environment.

Available in a variety of different sizes, Activon Tulle is designed to effectively cover wounds of all sizes.

Instructions for Use

  • Ensure the wound has been cleaned
  • Gently dry the surrounding skin
  • Remove from packaging
  •  Place (either side down) onto the wound surface
  • Dressings can be placed side-by-side to cover large wound areas, or cut to size for  smaller areas.
  •  Activon Tulle can be unfolded to cover larger areas (this reduces the concentration of honey at the wound site)
  • Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing.
  • Store at room temperature

Frequency of Change

Depending on wound exudate levels, any surrounding interstitial fluid, oedema and dressing regimen may require changing daily but can be left in place for up to 7 days. Will be less effective when diluted by wound exudate. To maintain an effective honey level, change the dressing when the colour changes significantly.

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

Top tip: Activon Tulle is a triple layer knitted viscose net dressing which can be unfolded to decrease the amount of honey if discomfort is being experienced by the patient. Algivon releases honey at a slower rate into the wound therefore may be a solution if discomfort is being experienced by the patient when using Activon Tulle.

• Superficial wounds, partial or
full thickness wounds, e.g. cuts and abrasions
• Pressure ulcers

May assist with debridement if used in conjunction with Activon Tube.

Contra-indications

A few patients experience pain when applied, depending on sensitivity of the
wound it may be necessary to consider an appropriate level of analgesia. If
pain continues unabated, discontinue use and irrigate the wound with saline
solution.
