ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive has the capacity to absorb and hold high to extra high
levels of exudate. It holds up to 50% more exudate than ALLEVYN Adhesive, both
with and without compression. ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive can stay in place for up
to 7 days, taking into account local clinical protocols. The wound contact layer
of ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive is coated with a low allergy adhesive which adheres
well to intact skin, will not stick to the wound and has a low risk of skin irritation.
ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive dressings allows the formation and maintenance of a
moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, preventing eschar
formation and promoting rapid and trouble-free healing. The outer polyurethane
layer of ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive prevents strike through of excess exudate from
the dressing, minimising the chances of cross contamination and wound
infection, therefore enhancing patient comfort and reducing healthcare costs.
It also allows the amount of fluid in the dressing to be monitored, as progression
of exudate can be seen through the pink top film. ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive
dressings absorb exudate and cellular debris, ensuring minimal mess at
dressing changes. Dressing changes are therefore easier for the carer and
less traumatic for the patient.
