Smith & Nephew Allevyn Compression Dressing

Allevyn Compression dressings contain a highly absorbent material embedded in a self-adherent polyurethane matrix. The dressing is covered with a waterproof polyurethane film which is permeable to oxygen and water vapour and is bacteria proof. Allevyn Compression dressings employ all the proven benefits of a moist wound environment without any breakdown of the dressing caused by contact with exudate.

  • Non-adherent to wound
    Allevyn Compression dressings are slightly adherent. They adhere well to dry, intact skin, but will not adhere to the wound surface. The dressing shows a slight adherence to dry skin, which will hold the dressing in place while the compression bandage is applied. The adhesion is so slight that sensitive skin is not damaged.
  • Highly-absorbent
    Allevyn Compression has a high absorption capacity and an ability to lock in exudates. This capacity results from the structure of highly absorbent material embedded in a polyurethane matrix.
  • Maintains absorption under compression
    Allevyn Compression is ideal for use in compression therapy as the polyurethane structure locks in and hold up to 99% of the exudates to help reduce the risk of maceration.
  • Promotes and maintains moist wound environment
    The outer layer used on Allevyn Compression is a breathable film layer. This allows the formation and maintenance of a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, preventing eschar formation. The film is also waterproof and bacteria proof.
  • Easy to use
    Allevyn Compression dressings absorb exudates and ensure minimal mess at dressing changes. Dressing changes are therefore easier for the caregiver and less traumatic for the patient; wound irrigation can be kept to a minimum. The progression of exudates is visible through the opaque dressing.
