MediHoney HCS Dressings 6x6cm (10)

Product code: 3822491
£34.20
(incl VAT)
MediHoney HCS Dressings are light-medium absorbent, non-adhesive dressings that are comprised of 63% medical grade antibacterial manuka honey that provides the optimum environment to aid healing while helping to protect against bacteria.
The hydrogel sheet with super absorbent polymers absorbs and locks exudate within the dressing, maximising the wear time and minimising dressing changes. This exudate forms a gel which aids in autolytic debridement (natural removal/softening of bad tissue) and minimises trauma during dressing changes.
