Description

Activon Tulle
Knitted viscose mesh dressing impregnated with 100% Manuka honey

Features
Manuka honey brings the following properties:
Anti-bacterial - 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 Tulle delivers the honey to the wound site in a convenient way also allowing the passage of exudate. It is easy to apply, can be cut to size and can be placed either side up.

Description
Activon Tulle creates a moist healing environment and effectively eliminates wound odour whilst providing antibacterial action. Activon Tulle is ideally selected for granulating or shallow wounds, it's a good choice when debriding or de-sloughing small areas of necrotic or sloughy tissue.

Use
Activon Tulle is placed either side down onto the wound surface; dressings can be placed side by side to cover large wound areas or cut to size. Activon Tulle can be unfolded to cover larger areas, this reduces the concentration of honey at the wound site.

Depending on the tissue type within the wound bed and level of exudate, your secondary dressing of choice could be a film or absorbent dressing. In wounds with a high level of exudate which can be expected initially with the use of honey an additional highly absorbent dressing can be introduced to help manage exudate. We recommend the Eclypse super absorbent dressing.

Store at room temperature. Due to the nature of honey, it can solidify at cold temperatures become more liquidized at warmer temperatures. If the product has hardened, warm between hands to soften before use. If the product has become too liquidized, 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.

Indications
Activon Tulle is ideally selected for granulating or shallow wounds, it's a good choice when debriding or de-sloughing small areas of necrotic or sloughy tissue.

Activon Tulle 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.

Contra-indications
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 analgesia. The initial discomfort usually subsides, however if it does continue, discontinue use and irrigate the wound with saline solution.
