Allevyn Triple Action Technology

Like all Smith & Nephew Allevyn Dressings, Allevyn Gentle Border Lite has at its heart a unique three-layer technology that effectively manages exudate, helping to ensure that the wound is kept at optimum moisture levels to maintain a moist wound environment.

The dressing consists of an absorbent hydrocellular foam pad, held between a perforated wound contact layer which is coated with a soft silicone gel adhesive and a highly permeable outer top film. Allevyn foam dressings achieve their benefits of easy application and removal, and the ability to reposition through an adhesive technology based on a soft silicone gel

When to Use Allevyn Gentle Border Foam Dressing?

  • Shallow, granulating wounds
  • Chronic and acute exudative wounds
  • Full- and partial-thickness wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers
  • Malignant wounds
  • Surgical wounds
  • First and second-degree burns
  • Donor sites
  • Skin tears
  • Fungating ulcers
  • Oncological wounds
  • Epidermolysis Bullosa wounds

How to Use Allevyn Gentle Border Lite Dressing?

  • Cleanse the wound in accordance with local protocols.
  • Select appropriate dressing size. Allevyn Gentle Border Lite can be cut to dress wounds on the heel, elbows and other awkward areas. Always use a clean technique when cutting the dressing.
  • 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.
  • Remove one of the protector films from Allevyn Gentle Border Lite 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. Allevyn Gentle Border Lite can be lifted and repositioned without losing its adherent properties.

  • 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.

Removal Of Allevyn Gentle Border Lite Dressing

To remove Allevyn Gentle Border Lite Dressings, lift one corner of the dressing and slowly peel back until completely removed from the wound.

Frequency of Changing Allevyn Hydrocellular Foam Dressing

During the early stages of wound management, Allevyn Hydrocellular Dressing should be inspected according to local clinical protocol. Where the product is used on infected wounds, the infection should be inspected and treated as per local clinical protocol. 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 3/16 of an inch (0.5cm) of the edge of the dressing pad, whichever is sooner. Local clinical protocols should also be taken into consideration.

Precautions While Using Allevyn Dressing

  • Do not use Allevyn Gentle Border Lite Dressings with oxidizing 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 sensitization occur, discontinue use
