ALLEVYN* Compression is a gentle adhesive dressing that contains a highly absorbent material, appropriate for use on fragile skin or under compression.
• Polyurethane structure holds nearly all of the exudate to help reduce risk of maceration
• Promotes and maintains a moist wound environment to prevent eschar formation
• Minimal mess makes dressing changes easier for patient and caregiver
• Progression of exudates is visible through the opaque dressing
• Waterproof and bacteria-proof to protect the wound
• Non-adherent to wound surface for patient comfort
• Maintains absorption under compression
ALLEVYN* Compression is indicated for use on moderately to highly exuding wounds surrounded by sensitive skin such as ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic, pressure), and burns (first- and second-degree).
ALLEVYN* Compression is not indicated for use on third-degree burns, or on wounds with exposed muscle, bone or tendon.
Do not soak in oxidizing agents, such as hypochlorite or peroxide solutions.

Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Select an appropriate size dressing. Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture.
Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound, overlapping the wound edges by at least 2cm.
ALLEVYN* Compression dressings can be left in place for up to seven days depending on the volume of exudates and in accordance with local clinical protocol. To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and lift it gently away from the wound.
