Please, see below the most common questions about the application of PolyHeal® Micro.
The surface itself may have different appearances according to its condition - clean, exudates, eschar, granulation tissue, etc. As healing progresses, more and more rich, red, granulation tissue, often bleeding with minimal touch, will appear. This tissue is the treatment's expected results. The bleeding is capillary bleeding, from the newly formed fragile new capillaries. With the progression of healing, the granulation tissue may start to change color as it becomes fibrotic, while growing epithelium may further change the color and texture.
In most cases, the sensation is a normal, pain free, similar to routine wet dressing change. Wetting the dressing with water or saline may further ease its removal. In addition, the removed dressing may have some exudates absorbed to its inner surface. In some cases, itching may appear after several days of treatment, which is quite normal in wound healing. If the itching becomes painful and redness appears on the surrounding skin, with or without fever, the patient should consult their treating physician.Close
The final goal is to heal and close the wound as soon as possible. Once the wound is covered mostly with healthy granulation tissue, a decision by the treating physician should be taken:
PolyHeal® Micro treatment should be continued as long as there is progress in the creation of a healthy granulating wound bed that enables continuous and complete wound closure or grafting. If the wound discontinues to progress for a medically substantial period of time, the wound may be grafted, when feasible, depending on the condition of the wound bed or alternatively, the physician may change to another treatment modality aimed to facilitate spontaneous wound closure.Close
It is recommended to use a non-woven cotton Gauze pad or similar, that does not contain active absorptive material other than cotton.Close
Gauze was chosen during the clinical study to ensure:
Please be careful while using impregnated dressings and high absorbent dressings as these may interfere with PolyHeal®’s activity.Close
No studies have been conducted to assess PolyHeal® Micro interactions with other agents.Close
In the Instructions for use it is recommended to use a conventional bandage to keep the primary dressing in place. If gauze is secured with a film dressing, it should be closely monitored, to diagnose any unsuitable event as soon as it starts. In Venous Ulcers, the compression bandage will be applied over the film dressing, if used.Close
Yes. In Venous Ulcers, the compression bandage should be applied over the dressing.Close
