Neoheal®. Hydrogel dressing for wound management
Neoheal is a modern and unique hydrogel dressing recommended for treatment of burns, ulcerations, bedsores and all kinds of skin damages in which humid medium is favorable.
Neoheal was developed by using the special Hydrogel -Technology with the innovative concept of “Moist Wound Healing”. A wound which keeps moist can heal faster because newly formed cells can divide and move faster under such environment than under a wound scab.
Hydrogel dressings Neoheal are an aqueous composition of natural and synthetic polymers such as: polyvinylopyrrolidone, polyethylene glycol and agar, cross-linked by a beam of electrons. Thanks to radiation processing the product features sufficient mechanical strenght and is fully sterile. In the end-use form it represents 3 mm thick hydrogel sheet, containing over 90% of water.
Recommended method of burn wounds healing with Neoheal dressing
- Damaged surfaces, due to action of high temperature, should be covered as soon as possible with the Neoheal dressing.
- Replace the dressing at first cure days every 12-24 hours.
- Possibly early, at first/second day of healing, burn-bubbles should be taken off and remaining necrosis tissues should be removed. The dressing should be immediately applied on the wound.
Depending on the kind of wound and stage of the treatment, the degree of adhesion of Neoheal dressing to the skin and wound surface will change. In case of big amount of discharges, a replacement of the dressing every 12 hours is recommended (absorption ability is about 25 ml of discharge from 1 dm2 of the wound). However maximal time recommended for keeping the dressing on the wound is 48 hours.
In case of febrile patient or staying in dry, over-heated rooms the dressing dries faster, than in normal conditions. In order to prevent it the lost moisture must be completed. A poultice should be put on the whole surface of dressing (made of cooked or distilled water or physiological lotion) for 15-20 minutes. This soaking operation, restoring correct elasticity, should be performed as needed 2-4 times daily. Before the removal of the dressing its soaking is also recommended in order to facilitate taking off and eliminate the risk of damage wound granulation.
