The ALLEVYN Ag dressings have been designed to combine the essential qualities of the ALLEVYN range with the added antimicrobial activity of silver.
The unique tri-layer construction of the dressings enable optimal fluid handling to support moist wound healing and the addition of SSD to the foam pad provides a broad spectrum bacterial kill in-vitro. The dressings are comfortable for patients, conform to body contours and are easy to apply and remove.
All of the ALLEVYN Ag dressings combine the physical qualities of the ALLEVYN tri-layer construction with the antimicrobial activity of SSD. Proven in vitro against a broad spectrum of bacteria including antibiotic resistant bacteria such as Pseudomonas, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) the ALLEVYN Ag range provides a sustained action with antimicrobial properties remaining effective for up to 7 days in-vitro.
Breathable Top Film
The outer polyurethane top film switches to become more breathable in the presence of exudate.
It also helps to prevent strikethrough and provides an effective barrier to bacteria and minimises the risk of cross contamination.
Highly Absorbent Foam Core
The hydrocellular foam core is highly absorbent providing absorption capacity for up to 7 days.
Non-Adherent Wound Contact Layer
The wound contact layer will not stick to the wound and is available in a range of adhesive types to cater for differing patient needs.
