Burnaid

Burns Dressings will sooth very painful wounds, but if the burn is serious, seek medical attention immediately.

What is BURNAID & how does it work?

The Burnaid Gel range is used for the immediate first aid treatment of burns, it comes in various forms including burn dressings, sachets and tubes of gel. Burnaid rapidly cools the burn, helping to prevent further tissue damage and aids in the healing process while offering the patient rapid and ongoing pain relief.

 

Burnaid Gel consists of in excess of 90% water trapped in the proprietary gel and contains a small percentage of Melaleuca Oil (distilled from the leaves of the Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree). Melaleuca Oil is a proven antiseptic, which exhibits local anaesthetic and antiinflammatory properties.

 

The Burnaid Dressing consists of a 3mm thick pad of open cell foam impregnated with the Burnaid gel. When placed on a burn, a 3mm layer of gel is held on the skin.

 

  • From the patient’s perspective, they feel almost immediate pain relief from the cooling gel and the anaesthetic properties of the Melaleuca Oil. The cooling property of the dressing helps to halt the burn progression and minimizes further tissue damage.
  • Due to Burnaid being in excess of 90% water, the Dressing re-hydrates the burn. Burnaid Dressings are sterile and exhibit mild biocidal properties – helping to prevent secondary infection.
  • The dressing is placed on the burn for up to two hours. There is no requirement to keep irrigating the burn, nor is there any ‘run-off’. The Dressing doesn’t disguise the extent of the burn.
  • When the burn needs to be further examined, the non-adherent dressing simply lifts off and any residual gel rinses off.
  • The Burnaid Dressing allows for easy transport to medical attention, since the gel stays on the skin better than chilled-water irrigated dressings.

Can Burnaid be used on deep or full thickness burns?

Yes it can – Burnaid can be used on all degrees of burns, from superficial sunburn, to partial and full thickness burns, even where there are open skin wounds present. Extensive testing and trials of the Burnaid Hydrogel have shown it will not cause any tissue damage. Burnaid is completely sterile and will also assist with secondary infections by protecting the wound.

But I have been told that I cannot use any creams or lotions on Burns, only water?

That is correct - Other creams or lotions are petroleum or waxed based and can trap heat in the wound. They can also cover the wound in a film-like substance and make wound assessment for medical practitioners difficult. Whereas Burnaid dressings and gels are water based gels (>90% water) that break down with heat from the burn injury. This releases water onto the wound and cools through evaporation and convection airflow. It is completely water soluble and any extra gel breaks down and can be washed away with water or saline. Basically Burnaid is water in a gel.

Because Burnaid contains a small amount of Tea Tree Oil, are there concerns regarding allergies?

Burnaid dressings and gel do contain a small percentage of Melaleuca Alternifolia or Tea Tree Oil (TTO). Extensive studies have shown that pure TTO 50% and 100% solutions have a 2/100 reaction rate. This is equivalent to the reaction rate for hand soaps sanitizers etc. Since Burnaid use a 1% and 4% TTO solution diluted into its hydrogel, possible reactions are even smaller.

How long can I keep Burnaid?

Burnaid is a sterile product that has a shelf life of 5 years from date of manufacture.
