Smith & Nephew Allevyn Heel Dressing

Non-Adhesive Hydrocellular, Anatomically Shaped, Heel Dressing

Allevyn Heel dressing has been designed for a superior anatomical and comfortable fit to enhance management of wounds on the heel.

  • Non adhesive
  • Unique trilaminate construction
  • Non adherent wound contact layer
  • Highly absorbent central hydrocellular layer
  • Waterproof outer film layer
  • Protective padding
  • Promotes early healing
  • Designed to fit the heel
  • Cushioned comfort
  • Clean wound healing

Benefits:

Highly absorbent

  • In-vitro studies and clinical experience, both demonstrate that as healing progresses, Allevyn dressings can stay in place for up to seven days. This capacity results from a combination of properties:
    • The perforated wound contact layer allows even viscous exudate to pass into the dressing.
    • The hydrocellular core of the dressing absorbs and holds liquid in its microscopic structure.
    • The breathable outer surface of the dressing allows excess moisture to evaporate away from the dressing.
  • The result is the formation of a wound environment, which allows healing to progress without the need for frequent dressing changes.

Promotes early healing

  • Allevyn Heel 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.

Designed to fit the heel

  • Allevyn Heel dressing is designed to gently fit around the back of the foot allowing the wound to be dressed creating a moist wound healing environment.

Cushioned comfort

  • Allevyn Heel dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort and protection.

Clean wound healing

  • Allevyn Heel absorbs and retains exudate, bacteria and cellular debris, providing clean, mess free dressing changes.

Contraindications / Precautions:

  • Do not use Allevyn dressings with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. Eusol) or hydrogen peroxide solutions, 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 peri-wound skin for prolonged periods may be the cause. Infrequently, cases of sensitivity to the dressing have also been reported. If reddening or sensitisation occur, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
