The TheraHoney Honey Sheet Dressings are easy to apply and impregnated with 100% sterile, medical-grade Manuka honey. TheraHoney Sheet is well suited as a primary wound dressing. It is porous, and permits the passage of exudate into a secondary dressing. The Honey Sheet Dressings are indicated for use on wounds with any drainage level.
Recommended applications of the TheraHoney Honey Sheet Dressings include:
Manuka honey is derived from the pollen and nectar of the Leptospermum scoparium plant in New Zealand. The honey comb is used only once, and when harvested, the honey is carefully filtered, irradiated and tested in a laboratory.
High sugar levels (87%) in TheraHoney result in osmotic pressure that help promote autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue, a moist wound healing environment, and also helps to quickly reduce wound odor.
