ALLEVYN* Non-Adhesive Hydrocellular Dressing
ALLEVYN* Non-Adhesive Hydrocellular Dressing is water/bacteria-proof. Indicated for moderate to high exudating wounds. Hydrocellular structure allows for the formation and maintenance of a moist wound environment.
• Breathable outer surface allows excess moisture to evaporate away from dressing
• Hydrocellular core absorbs and retains liquid in its microscopic structure
• Pink film is waterproof and aids in prevention of bacterial contamination
• Provides a moist wound environment to help prevent eschar formation
• Conformable and can be cut to suit many wound shapes and locations
• Polyurethane wound contact layer prevents adherence to wounds
• Do not leave debris in the wound for easy dressing changes
• Progression of exudate is visible through pink top film
• Soft and cushioning for patient comfort
ALLEVYN* Non-Adhesive Hydrocellular Dressing is indicated for use for exudate absorption and the management of partial- to full-thickness wounds. Some typical wounds are: ulcers (venous, arterial, diabetic, pressure), donor sites, surgical incisions, surgical excisions, and burns (first- and second-degree).
ALLEVYN* Non-Adhesive Hydrocellular Dressing is contraindicated for use on third-degree burns.
Do not use ALLEVYN* dressings with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. Dakin's) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent hydrocellular component of the dressing.
Reddening of the skin around the wound has been reported rarely following the use of ALLEVYN* dressings. In some cases this relates to irritation of fragile skin, in others, wound exudate remaining in contact with normal skin for prolonged periods may be the cause.
Infrequently, cases of sensitivity to the dressing have also been reported.
If reddening or sensitization occur, discontinue use and consult a health care professional.
