Collection: Hydrogel Neoheal Speeds Healing Process Wounds For Difficult Burns Various Sizes
WOUND HEALING HYDROGEL PADS
Neoheal creates a moist environment on the skin surface, assists in auatolytic cleansing of dead tissues, and exerts a positive influence on the process of granulation and epidermisation of the wound.
The dressing adheres well to the surface of the wound but is not adhesive; thus application and removal is painless. Neoheal absorbs exudates from wounds and traps it, along with bacteria, in its structure.
The elastic and flexibility of Neoheal make it possible to dress hard to access body parts such as the face and areas around joints.
Neoheal dressing are transparent, enabling observation of the wound site or primary dressing and minimising the frequency of changing dressing. Thanks to its properties it can be used as a secondary dressing for many drugs and preparations placed directly on the wound. The unique structure of the dressing created a barrier to external bacteria, yet enables the skin to ‘breathe’.
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 strength and is fully sterile. In the end-use form it represents 3 mm thick hydrogel sheet, containing over 90% of water.
Advantages of NEOHEAL hydrogel dressing:
• Promotes fast healing through maintenance of an optimal moist environment • Cools, soothes local pain and discomfort • Helps protect wounds from external contamination • Absorbs wound secretions • Permeable to water vapour and oxygen but impermeable to bacteria • Does not adhere to the wound, allowing the dressing to be removed without trauma • Conforms easily to any contour of the body • Transparent to enable wound observation and assessment of healing process • Biocompatible, non-cytotoxic, non-allergenic
PREPARATION OF THE Neoheal DRESSING TO USE
The Neoheal dressings are packed in moulds, covered with foil and it is placed in tight, closed foil envelope. Before using the dressing, check if the envelope has not been damaged or opened, otherwise the product can be not sterile. Taking out the dressing:
Tear an envelope and take the dressing out
Catch a small piece of sticking out fibre; next carefully take the hydrogel out from the mould. The foil, sticked on the top facilitates taking out of the dressing, therefore it should not be removed before taking out of the hydrogel
Apply the dressing to the wound with that side which has adhered to the bottom of the mould and remove the covering foil
Attach the dressing to the wound with bandage or net band.
