Activon Tube contains 100% Manuka honey, with no additives, from New Zealand. The Manuka honey is filtered and sterilised, making it suitable for application to wounds. Manuka honey will de-bride and de-slough, eliminate odours and provides a moist wound healing environment. Activon Tube is ideal for debriding necrotic tissue, or for topping up dressings where the honey has been washed away by exudate.
Manuka honey brings the following properties:
• Anti-bacterial, effectively kills harmful bacteria
• Eliminates odours without masking them
• Osmotic effect, drawing harmful tissue away from the wound bed
• Maintains the ideal moist wound healing environment
Activon Tube is ideal for debriding necrotic tissue; it’s ideal for topping up dressings where the honey is washed away or great for using directly into cavities. Honey can be washed away using normal saline solution. As honey is a natural product any remaining honey will not have any adverse effects.
Activon Tube may be applied to any wound but especially: Pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, burns, graft sites, infected wounds, cavity wounds and sinuses.
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.
