Allevyn Ag Gentle Border Dressing, by Smith and Nephew, are specifically made to minimize pain and potential trauma by making an easy-release wound adhesive. These Wound Dressings are made with highly absorbent hydrocellular material that utilizes the antimicrobial properties of silver (Ag). The silver within the dressing retains the antibacterial properties for as long as a week. The Allevyn Ag Gentle Boarder Silver Dressings allow for a quicker heal time through several unique properties. One of these properties is the hydrocellular material maintains a moist wound environment, which makes it difficult for bacteria to grow and facilitates faster closure. Also, the dressings absorb exudate, or the fluid that oozes from the wound, but does not allow external moisture to enter. The wound dressings provide a barrier, yet come with a breathable top film and will help prevent over-moisturization of the skin (maceration). The dressings come in various sizes to match the wound area. The suggested rate of changing the Allevyn Ag Gentle Boarder dressings is once every seven days, or until the exudate is viewed through the strikethrough nearing the dressing border.
