HemaGel® - package information leaflet


HemaGel® offers a unique solution for the healing of both acute wounds such as cuts, abrasions, 1st and 2nd degree burns, cold sores (e.g. minor trauma incurred at home, during sports activities) and chronic wounds such as varicose ulcers induced by damage to the venous or arterial system, diabetic foot, decubiti, surgery induced or other skin damage. The exceptional properties of HemaGel® are enhanced by the moist environment during wound treatment. Stable humidity within the wound prevents the formation of scabs and thus accelerates the healing process.

Why use a gel to treat wounds?

Thanks to its properties, HemaGel® has demonstrated in clinical studies that:
  • It chemically binds oxygen radicals that form during inflammatory processes
  • If produces an optimal pH within the wound and thus helps healing
  • The verified structure of the gel prevents the release of gel particles into the wound with subsequent irritation (no adhesion)
  • It provides the wound with moisture
  • It prevents wound desiccation and the formation of scabs
  • It has absorptive properties and thus cleanses contaminated wounds
  • It decreases wound painfulness
  • It promotes wound closure with a scar
  • It prevents scarring if applied in time or improves the appearance of potential scars

HemaGel composition

HemaGel® is a hydrophilic methacrylate gel on the basis of a meshed copolymer of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate containing polymer bound sterically shielded amino groups developed by The Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic .

How to proceed when applying the gel:

  • Clean the wound from mechanical impurities , e.g. dust particles, the remains of therapeutic materials that could subsequently irritate and damage the wound.
  • Open the tube by piercing it with the lid.
  • Apply a small amount of the gel to the whole base of the wound. The gel will adhere to it and gradually absorb secretions and other fluids excreted by the wound.
  • Cover the wound with a sterile dressing preferably from a non-absorptive piece of fabric (e.g. tulle with Vaseline) and fix it secondarily with a classic or adhesive bandage. Cover minor wounds following gel application with adhesive bandage. The fixation material must exceed by approx.
  • In indicated patients with demonstrated infection, the antibiotics and medication ordered by the physician must be respected.
  • Patients in whom compressive therapy is indicated should have the wound bandaged with a low-stretch bandage.
  • The gel´s effect manifests as distension and bulging. The gel´s unique technology prevents adhesion to the wound and thus enables the easy and painless removal of the gel by simple wiping off.
  • Dressings should be changed as needed, as but no later than after 24 hours. In infected wounds, more frequent changes of the dressing are recommended.

Remarks:

Experience to date and clinical tests have demonstrated that a moist environment significantly accelerates the healing process, promotes cell division and movement within the wound. At the same time, it maintains a constant temperature within the wound, which is very important for high quality healing. When treating complicated and infected wounds, it is also important to adhere to other treatment requirements such as e.g. appropriate nutrition, wound cleanliness, treatment of associated diseases and adherence to any further medical instructions issued by physicians.

Contraindications:

No side effects or adverse events such as allergies, increased pain etc. nor any other contraindications have been described in association with HemaGel® application.
