Allevyn Tracheostomy Dressing comes with a Keyhole aperture which allows the dressing to fit neatly around a tracheostomy tube or other drain or stoma. Unique structure of this dressing enables it to absorb large amounts of secretions. Allevyn foam dressing prevents maceration and helps maintain the condition of the patients skin in the peristomal area.

Allevyn Tracheostomy Dressing Key Features

  • Pink, waterproof outer film layer
  • Highly absorbent hydrocellular central layer
  • Non-adherent inner layer
  • Cushioned pad

Benefits of Allevyn Tracheostomy Foam Dressing

  • Easy to apply and remove
    • Key-hole aperture in dressing simplifies applications
    • Dressing may be cut to shape, if required
    • Removal of the dressing is simple and painless, causing minimal distress to the patient
  • Breathable film
    • Breathable OPSITE Film forms the outer surface of the dressing, preventing leakage of secretions through the front of the dressing, providing an easy clean surface and acting as a barrier to liquids
  • Non-adherent
    • Advanced design of dressing minimizes adherence to both the peristomal skin and the tracheostomy tube, reducing trauma for the patient during use and removal
  • Soft and conformable
    • Cushioned middle foam layer offers significant benefits in terms of patient comfort and protection
    • Non-fibrous construction also means that fiber shedding is not a problem, unlike traditional gauze dressings
  • Attractive appearance
    • Dressing has a clean, functional appearance which helps to reassure patients and their caregivers
    • High absorbency means that fewer dressing changes are required, which makes the dressing not only more cost-effective but also minimizes discomfort for the patient
    • It is a soft, conformable non-adherent dressing indicated for the management of fluid, secretion, or exudate build-up associated with the use of tracheostomy tubes

  • Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the tracheostomy tube by removing excess moisture
  • Fit the Allevyn dressing around the stoma or tracheostomy tube
  • Apply the white, patterned surface of the dressing toward the patients neck
  • If required, the dressing may be cut to shape
  • Additional fixation, such as Opsite Flexigrid Transparent Film Dressing or Hypafix Non-Woven Adhesive Dressing Sheet may be used to secure the dressing
  • During the early stages of treatment, the tracheostomy site should be inspected frequently
  • Allevyn Tracheostomy Non-Adhesive Apertured Hydrocellular dressings can be left in place undisturbed for up to 7 days, or until exudate is visible and approaches 3/4" from the edge of the dressing
