Allevyn Adhesive Foam Dressing is specifically used to manage chronic or acute exuding wounds. With its unique triple layer formation, Allevyn Adhesive has been designed to achieve the combination of high absorbency, conformability, secure self-adhesion as well as waterproof and bacteria-proof performance to ensure optimal fluid handling to support moist wound healing. The non-sensitizing adhesive keeps the dressing securely in place without adhering to the wound. The highly breathable top film helps minimize the risk of maceration to the wound and peri-wound.

Allevyn Wound Dressing Technology

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.

  1. Breathable Top Film: Outer polyurethane top film switches to become more breathable in the presence of exudate. It also helps to prevent strike-through and provides an effective barrier to bacteria and minimizes the risk of cross-contamination.

  2. Highly Absorbent Foam Core: Hydrocellular foam core is highly absorbent, providing absorption capacity for up to 7 days
  3. Non-Adherent Wound Contact Layer: Wound contact layer has a low allergy based adhesive, which adheres well to the 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 and ensures that the wound is kept at optimum moisture levels to support moist wound healing. It does this by:
  1. Transpiring enough fluid to keep the dressing conformable and comfortable
  2. Retaining enough fluid to keep a healthily moist wound environment
  3. Absorbing enough fluid to remove unwanted exudate and cellular debris

What to buy with Allevyn Dressing

How to apply Allevyn Foam Adhesive Wound Dressing?

  1. Cleanse wound in accordance with the local clinical protocol
  2. Select an appropriate dressing size. This foam dressing can be cut to dress wounds on the heel, elbows and other awkward areas.
  3. 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 the fragile skin is involved.
  4. Remove one of the protector films from Allevyn Foam dressing and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin
  5. 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.
  6. 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 Allevyn Foam Dressing.
  7. When positioning Allevyn Foam 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.

When to change Allevyn Adhesive Foam Wound Dressing?

Dressings can be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the condition of the wound and the surrounding skin or until exudate is visible and approaches to within 2cm or 3/16in. of the edge of the dressing pad, whichever is sooner. Local clinical protocols should also be taken into consideration.

Allevyn Adhesive Wound Dressing Change Frequency

Exudate within 2cm of the edge of the pad requires changing

Note: If dressings are applied to the sacral area, they may be left in place for up to 5 days, however, 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. The decision of when to change should be dependent upon clinical assessment and local protocols should also be taken into consideration.

How to remove Allevyn Adhesive Foam Bandage?

To remove this dressing, lift one corner of the dressing and slowly peel back until completely removed from the wound. Sacral dressings should be removed from the top edge and down towards the anus to minimise the potential for faecal contamination.

Smith and Nephew Allevyn Foam Adhesive Dressing User Guide

  • Do not use this dressing with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. EUSOL) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing
  • If reddening or sensitisation occurs discontinue use
  • It is a single use product
  • In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound have been reported
  • Infrequently cases of sensitivity to the dressing have been reported
  • It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly on patients with fragile skin, can result in skin stripping

How does the adhesive not stick to wound surface?


Customer Care    09/24/2014

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 is non-irritating.



Lukes     09/11/2014

What makes the dressing changes so less frequent?


Customer Care    09/15/2014

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 wound closure to progress without the need for frequent dressing changes.

What is the frequency of change?


Customer Care    09/04/2014

How do I use it?


Customer Care    08/22/2014

Step 1: Select an appropriate size dressing. Prepare and clean the skin around the wound. Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound. Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled. 

Step 2: During the early stages of treatment, ALLEVYN Adhesive dressings should be inspected frequently; dressings can be left in place until exudate can be seen through the outer waterproof film layer and approaches 3/4" from the edge of the dressing. 

Step 3: To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and lift it gently away from the wound.

Customer Care    08/11/2014

  • ALLEVYN Adhesive is not indicated for use on third degree burns.
  • Do not use any ALLEVYN product with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions (eg Dakins) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressings.
