Overview

Melcare's Manuka Wound Gel is a sterile antibacterial honey gel made from Leptospermum sp. (Manuka) honey (80%) and a natural emollient for ease of application and patient comfort.

Melcare's Manuka Wound Gel is a sterile dressing made from Leptospermum sp. honey (80%), plant derived hydrocolloids and a natural oil.

  • Provides an antibacterial wound environment;
  • Helps maintain wound pH;
  • Assists in removal of slough and necrotic tissue;
  • Rapidly removes malodour;
  • Is non-adherent thus reducing trauma at dressing change.

    Indications

    Manuka Wound Gel is indicated as a contact layer for wounds such as:

  • Venous ulcers;
  • Pressure ulcers (I-IV);
  • Diabetic Ulcers;
  • 1st and 2nd degree burns;
  • Surgical wounds
  • Donor and recipient graft sites
  • Sloughy, malodorous wounds
  • General First Aid

    Directions

  • Inspect and clean the wound using standard techniques.
  • Open by reversing cap and twisting off top.
  • Manuka Wound Gel should be applied liberally (e.g. for a 10cm x 10cm wound apply 20-25g of Manuka Wound Gel).
  • Manuka Wound Gel can be applied either directly to the wound or to a suitable dressing.
  • Avoid direct contact with the nozzle of the tube.
  • A non-adherent gauze should be applied to cover the Manuka Wound Gel with additional secondary dressings applied as required for absorbance of wound exudate.
  • Wound margins can be protected by a suitable barrier cream (Melcare's Derma Care)
  • The frequency of changing will depend on the clinical circumstances and this can vary from more than once per day for draining wounds to up to 7 days for unsoiled dressings.
  • Manuka Wound Gel can be removed from the wound by rinsing with clean saline or tap water at dressing change.

    Warnings

    Wounds subject to arterial insufficiency, diabetic conditions or signs of infection should be managed by a healthcare professional. Any experience of a reaction other than a short lasting stinging sensation, remove the dressing and wash the affected area. Not for use on heavily exudating wounds. Manuka Wound Gel is not recommended for body cavities. DO NOT use on patients with known hypersensitivity to honey. In the event of a slow or non-responding wound please seek medical advice.
