Description

Allevyn Adhesive Bandages are a thin micro-film that is both permeable to moisture but also impermeable to pathogens, water and wound exudate. With Allevyn Adhesive Bandages, the wound surface is covered in a perforated micro-film that stops the dressing sticking to granulating tissue. Immediately after application, the bandage begins to absorb exudate and excess fluid whilst also maintaining optimal moisture levels to promote quick, effective and natural healing.

Features

  • Low allergy adhesive
  • Tapered construction with micro-thin edges
  • Unique trilaminate structure
  • Perforated wound contact layer
  • Highly absorbent central hydrocellular layer
  • Waterproof outer film layer
  • Full range of sizes

Benefits

  • Convenient adhesive presentation - 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
  • Highly absorbent - In-vitro studies and clinical experience demonstrate that Allevyn Adhesive dressings can stay in place for up to seven days. 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
  • Moist Wound Environment - Allevyn Adhesive creates and maintains a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, helping prevent eschar formation
  • Profiled dressing edges - Allevyn Adhesive has a profiled cross-section, narrowing to micro-thin edges which helps ensure the dressing remains securely in place and prevents accidental removal by friction between the dressing and clothes and bedding
  • Waterproof/Aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination Cushioned comfort - Allevyn Adhesive dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort and protection

Indications

  • Allevyn Adhesive is indicated for exudate absorption and the management of partial to full thickness wounds. Some typical wounds are:
    Ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic)
    Pressure Sores
    Donor Sites
    Surgical Incisions
    Surgical Excisions
    Burns (1st and 2nd degree)
  • Creation and maintenance of a moist wound environment. Moist wound environments have been established as optimal environments for the management of the wound
  • Provides physical separation between the wound and external environments to assist in preventing bacterial contamination of the wound

Precautions

  • 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
  • As with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound have been reported. It should be noted that too frequent dressing changes, particularly on patients with fragile skin, may result in skin stripping
  • If reddening or sensitization occur, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional
  • Allevyn Adhesive is not indicated for use on third degree burns

Delivery of aerosols

Due to air freight restrictions aerosols cannot ever be sent abroad by Royal Mail. We appreciate your understanding.

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you. Purchasing any of these items in your order will result in a £1.99 charge being added to the total to cover the high cost of the insulated packaging materials. You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.
