Medical health professionals show how SurgihoneyRO can prevent and treat wound infections.
SurgihoneyROTM is an antimicrobial wound gel for enhanced healing. It is indicated for all stages of healing on a wide range of acute and chronic wound types, including leg ulcers, pressure injuries, burns and surgical wounds.
SurgihoneyROTM works primarily by the sustained release of Reactive Oxygen® onto the wound bed, boosting the body’s ability to fight infection and heal.
It rapidly destroys bacteria that cause wound infection, Gram-positive, Gram-negative and multi-drug resistant, including MRSA and Pseudomonas. (1,7) Laboratory testing has also demonstrated antibiofilm action in vitro.(15, 27)
SurgihoneyROTM can be used for prevention and therapy. It offers a safe and effective way to deal with soft tissue infection, helping to reduce reliance on antibiotics and providing an alternative to antiseptics.
In 2017, the NHS through Public Health England’s guidance on common infections officially recognised Reactive Oxygen® wound gel (SurgihoneyROTM) as a treatment for venous leg ulcers to reduce bacterial load and infection, explaining it could cut antibiotic use (28 )
"There is clear benefit to having a wide array of options to prevent and treat drug-resistant infections."(17)
