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

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.

Allevyn Gentle Border Foam Dressing FAQ

1. What's a foam dressing?

Foam dressings are very adaptable and supply a cushioning effect, making them suitable for bony prominences or areas of increased friction. It would help if you used foam dressing because they help keep the wound moist and handle moderate-to-heavy exudate.

2. How often should you change an Allevyn Foam Dressing?

Replace the Allevyn Foam Dressing every 3 to 7 days or as needed. Add an extra wound dressing to secure non-adhesive foam.

3. What are Foam Dressings made of?

Foam dressings came around approximately 25 years ago. They are made of polyurethane, and provide a soft, absorbent dressing for granulating wounds of varying aetiologies and sizes.

4. Do wounds heal faster covered or uncovered?

According to a few studies, blood vessels repair quicker when wounds are kept wet and covered, and the number of cells that produce inflammation decreases faster than when wounds are left open. An injury should be kept wet and covered for at least five days.
