More Information

  • Application:
    To apply ALLEVYN Life follow the steps below:
    - Cleanse the wound in accordance with local clinical protocol.
    - Select an appropriate dressing size.
    - 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.
    - Using a clean technique remove one of the protector films from ALLEVYN Life and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin. Smooth the dressing over the wound ensuring there are no creases. When positioning ALLEVYN Life Sacrum dressings, place the narrow end of the dressing a minimum of 2cm (3/4in.) above the anal sphincter, then smooth the dressing over the sacrum.
    - Remove the remaining protector film and smooth the dressing over the remainder of the wound without stretching, ensuring no creases. Only the pad area of the dressing must be adhered across the entire surface of the wound.
    - ALLEVYN Life can be used to dress awkward areas such as elbows; the dressing corner lobes can be overlapped when positioning the dressing, ensuring no creasing or stretching occurs.
  • When to Change:
    Dressings can be left in place undisturbed for up to 7 days, except the sacral area where dressings can be left in place for up to 5 days, depending on the condition of the wound and the surrounding skin, or until exudate covers more than 50% of the absorbent pad outside of the central screen.
    - The above is guidance and the decision of when to change should be dependent upon clinical assessment and local protocols should also be taken into consideration.
    - If dressings are applied to the sacral area, due to the increased potential for contamination and infection in this area, increased monitoring of dressing adherence may be required as per local clinical protocols.
  • Dressing Removal:
    - To remove ALLEVYN Life, lift the edge of the dressing and slowly peel back until completely removed from the wound.
    - ALLEVYN Life Sacrum should be removed from the top edge down towards the anus to minimize the potential for fecal contamination.
