Step 1: Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Step 2: Select appropriate dressing size. Step 3: Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound. Step 4: Start to remove the protector material from Allevyn gentle border lite and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin. Step 5: Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound. Step 6: Allevyn gentle border lite can be cut especially to dress wounds on the heel, elbows, and other awkward areas. Always use aseptic technique when cutting the dressing. Ensure any exposed foam areas are covered with an appropriate film dressing, taking care not to cover the entire dressing. Step 7: Allevyn gentle border lite can be used in conjunction with Intrasite gel for necrotic or sloughy wounds.
Do not use Allevyn gentle border lite dressing with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. eusol) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can breakdown the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing. If reddening or sensitization occur, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
