ActivHeal® Hydrogel is an amorphous gel that gently increases the moisture level within the wound, encouraging moist wound healing through autolytic debridement.

ActivHeal® Hydrogel is a crucial product in any wound care treatment when fluid donation is essential. The gel is delivered through a tube onto the wound area as a primary dressing and can remain in situ to deliver important rehydration to the wound.

CASE STUDY

A 56 year old man with a history of ulcerative colitis who was diagnosed with a perforated bowel with faecal contamination. An urgent bowel resection was performed and the patient was subsequently transferred to ITU for management. During his stay in ITU the patient required high levels of inotropic support which resulted in the development of peripheral tissue necrosis.

Day 1. Wound assessment was performed by the Vascular Nurse Specialist and found to have a competent vascular system with palpable pulses. He had necrotic areas to both feet which were isolated to the lateral side and full tissue depth.

Day 18. After a full assessment the treatment selected to promote autolytic debridement was ActivHeal® Hydrogel covered by a film as a secondary dressing. This dressing was changed every 48hrs.

Day 24. Following multiple treatments the wound showed considerable improvement. The wound now had 100% granulation tissue present.
