Item Number: ALLEVA
ALLEVYN Adhesive consists of a highly absorbent hydrocellular foam pad held between an adhesive perforated wound contact layer and a highly permeable outer top film.
The outer polyurethane top film switches to become more breathable in the presence of exudate.
It also helps to prevent strikethrough and provides an effective barrier to bacteria and minimises the risk of cross contamination.
The hydrocellular foam core is highly absorbent, providing absorption capacity for up to 7 days.
The wound contact layer has a low allergy based adhesive, which adheres well to intact skin, will not stick to the wound and has a proven low risk of skin irritation.
The unique triple layer technology effectively manages exudate helping to ensure that the wound is kept at optimum moisture levels to support moist wound healing.
How to Apply ALLEVYN Adhesive
Cleanse wound in accordance with local clinical protocol.
Select an appropriate dressing size. ALLEVYN Adhesive can be cut to dress wounds on the heel, elbows and other awkward areas.
Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area and remove excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound. SKIN-PREP™ wipes may be used prior to application of ALLEVYN Adhesive where fragile skin is involved.
Remove one of the protector films from ALLEVYN Adhesive and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin.
Remove the remaining protector film and smooth the dressing over the remainder of the wound without stretching, ensuring there are no creases. The pad area of the dressing must be adhered across the entire surface of the wound.
If the dressing has been cut ensure any exposed foam areas are covered with an appropriate film dressing taking care not to cover the entire dressing.
When positioning ALLEVYN Adhesive Sacrum, place the narrow end of the dressing a minimum of 2cm (3/4in.) above the anal sphincter, then smooth the dressing over the sacrum.
