From the beginning Allevyn was designed to respond to the human body. Allevyn non-adhesive was the first Allevyn variant. Launched in 1987, it combined patient comfort with the revolutionary triple layer fluid management system that helps to maintain a moist wound environment. Allevyn non-adhesive has withstood the test of time and continues to be an essential for patients and clinicians all over the world. Allevyn non-adhesive utilizes the unique triple action technology seen across the Allevyn classic range of dressings. By combining an absorbent hydrocellular pad with a non-adherent wound contact layer and Breathable top film, the dressing manages fluid to maintain optimal moist wound environment. Allevyn non-adhesive dressings are ideal for fragile and sensitive skin due to the Non-adherent wound contact layer and soft, conformable construction. 6 The specially designed Allevyn heel dressing fits closely to the heel area allowing even this most challenging of body parts to be dressed comfortably.

Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area and remove excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound.

Apply the white face to the wound ensuring good contact and secure with a dressing retention sheet (e.g. OpSite Flexifix transparent film roll), tape or bandage. If the dressing has been cut, ensure any exposed foam areas are covered with an appropriate film dressing, taking care not to cover the entire dressing. Dressing removal: To remove Allevyn non-adhesive, remove the retention dressing or bandage and lift the dressing away from the wound.
