Allevyn Adhesive Dressing 12.5cmx12.5cm is a sterile foam film dressing in a self-adhesive format for simple and effective fixation. Allevyn ensures maximum patient comfort, minimal pain and rapid wound closure. Allevyn can be used for shallow granulating, exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, infected wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, malignant wounds, surgical wounds, first and second degree burns, donor sites and fungating ulcers. How it works Only Allevyn dressings benefit from triple action Allevyn technology to provide peace of mind through the active fluid management system. This system encourages a moist healing environment for faster wound closure and a bacterial barrier through the Allevyn top film. Allevyn is a hydrocellular wound dressing designed specifically for the management of exuding wounds. The way Allevyn works is why it works. Allevyn dressings are comprised of an advanced triple-layered construction, which facilitates healing through optimal fluid management. Transpires enough fluid to keep the dressing comfortable and conformable. Retains enough fluid to keep a healthily moist wound environment. Absorbs enough fluid to remove unwanted exudate and cellular debris. Benefits: Convenient adhesive presentation The wound contact layer of Allevyn Adhesive is coated with a low allergy adhesive which is designed to adhere well to intact skin, but not to wounds. The adhesive has a proven low risk of skin irritation. Highly absorbent Allevyn Adhesive dressings can stay in place for up to seven days. This capacity results from a combination of properties: The perforated wound contact layer allows even viscous exudate to pass into the dressing. The hydrocellular core of the dressing absorbs and holds liquid in its microscopic structure. The breathable outer surface of the dressing allows excess moisture to evaporate away from the dressing. The result is the formation of a wound environment, which allows healing to progress without the need for frequent dressing changes. Promotes early healing Allevyn Adhesive allows the formation and maintenance of a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, preventing eschar formation and promoting rapid and trouble-free healing. Profiled dressing edges AllevynAdhesive has a profiled cross-section, narrowing to micro-thin edges which ensure the dressing remains securely in place and reduces the risk of accidental removal by shear between the dressing and clothes or bedding. Bacteria proof/Waterproof The outer polyurethane layer of Allevyn Adhesive prevents strike-through of excess exudate from the dressing, and minimises the chances of cross-contamination and wound infection, therefore enhancing patient comfort and reducing healthcare costs. It also allows the amount of fluid in the dressing to be monitored. Cushioned Comfort Allevyn Adhesive dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort and protection.
