HYDROCOLLOID

ACTIVHEAL® HYDROCOLLOID IS AN IDEAL WOUND DRESSING FOR THE TREATMENT OF LIGHT TO MODERATELY EXUDING WOUNDS.

FEATURES // Versatile // Conformable // Provides a moist wound healing environment // Provides a bacterial barrier1 // Available in film and foam backed for extra comfort

Available with a film or foam backing, within a range of shapes and sizes, ActivHeal® Hydrocolloid provides a versatile dressing choice to promote moist wound healing. The dressing absorbs exudate away from the wound whilst the breathability of the top film allows excess fluid to be transferred through the dressing.  

ActivHeal® Hydrocolloid consists of a thin layer of hydrocolloid laminated to a highly breathable film, in addition to this ActivHeal® Hydrocolloid Foam Backed has a polyurethane foam backing which provides a cushion to aid patient comfort and protection to the wound.

PERFORMANCE

ActivHeal® Hydrocolloid absorbs exudate into the hydrocolloid matrix and transpires wound fluid through the breathable outer layer. This combination enhances the total fluid handling capacity of the dressing whilst also ensuring that moisture is regulated within the wound.

CASE STUDY

MR B is a 69 year old gentleman with type II diabetes and hypertension. He presented with a chronic non- healing ulcer (approx. 2cm x 1cm) over the tibial crest of his right leg, and he had this wound for the last 6 months, it was considered by tissue viability staff to be principally associated with venous insufficiency.

Week 1. His wound was found to be 40% sloughy, 10% granulating and 50% re-epithelialising. The peri-wound skin around his ulcer was found to be “dry”. The wound was considered to be producing low levels of exudate.

Week 3. A progressive reduction in non-viable tissue paralleled by a progressive increase in “healed & re-epithelialised” tissue was noted during this evaluation. Open wound area was found to rapidly reduce over the first three weeks of the evaluation.

Week 5. MR B’s ulcer was found to be fully healed. When asked to provide a satisfaction score on conclusion of the evaluation, both MR B and the Tissue Viability staff reported that they considered the dressing to be “very good”.
