Also known as the Allevyn Pad Dressing, this wound dressing comes in two different options—the Allevyn Adhesive Dressing and the Allevyn Non-Adhesive Dressing. The Allevyn Adhesive Dressing is a hydrocellular dressing with a breathable top film for faster fluid removal. Below the top film layer is a foam layer for absorption. Several dressing shapes are available to choose from to match to the size of the wound and the location of the wound (see the chart below). Additionally, the Allevyn Adhesive Hydocellular Dressing is available in two fixation levels to provide either a secure or gentle adhesion.
Allevyn Non Adhesive Dressing is constructed with polyurethane. Like the adhesive dressing, the Allevyn Non-Adhesive Dressing has a breathable top film followed by a foam layer for superior fluid removal. Additionally, this non adhesive foam dressing is equipped with sealed and shaped edges to protect against wound leakage.
Allevyn Dressings are designed to meet most wound shapes, sites and levels of exudate. The Allevyn wound site dressing options include the Allevyn Sacral, Allevyn Heel, Allevyn Cavity, and Allevyn Tracheostomy. The Allevyn Adhesive options include the Allevyn Thin, Allevyn Lite, Allevyn Compression, and Allevyn Plus. The chart below provides a dressing selection guide to help choose the correct Allevyn Foam Dressing to fit the wound type and wound site.
