Mode of Use/Application

Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Select appropriate dressing size. Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound.

Using aseptic technique, remove the protector material from ALLEVYN* LIFE Non-Bordered and apply the adherent side to the wound, ensuring good contact all the way around. Secure with a dressing retention sheet, tape, or bandage.

Removal & Change Frequency

ALLEVYN* LIFE Non-Bordered Dressings, as part of a complete pressure injuries prevention protocol, can be inspected daily and reapplied. For wound management use, dressings can be inspected and reapplied, but should be left in place to protect the wound. Where used on infected wounds, the infection should be inspected and treated as per local clinical protocol. Dressings can be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the level of exudate.
