Allevyn Compression Dressing by Smith & Nephew is a highly-absorbent, self-adhering wound dressing used in the treatment and management of moderately to highly exuding wounds surrounded by sensitive skin such as ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic), pressure sores and burns (1st and 2nd degree). By creating and maintaining a moist wound environment, while also providing a physical separation between the wound and external environments, the Allevyn Compression Dressing establishes the optimal environment for the management of wounds, perfectly preventing bacterial contamination of the wound. The dressings absorb exudates and ensure minimal mess at dressing changes, keeping wound irrigation to a minimum, and therefore ensuring ease of use for caregiver and patient both.
Allevyn Compression Dressing features a highly absorbent material embedded in a self-adherent, waterproof polyurethane matrix film, which is permeable to oxygen and water vapor, as well as bacteria-proof. The Allevyn Compression Dressings employ all the proven benefits of a moist wound environment without any breakdown of the dressing caused by contact with exudate. The moisture-locking polyurethane structure is strong enough to maintain absorption under compression, holding in 99% of the exudates to help reduce the risk of maceration, making it the ideal choice for use in compression therapy.
