ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive is a Sterile Hydrocellular Polyurethane Dressing.
ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive provides the advantages of Allevyn hydrocellular dressings in a self adhesive format for simple and effective fixation.
• Low allergy adhesive
• Unique tri-laminate structure
• Highly absorbent central hydrocellular layer
• Waterproof and bacteriaproof outer film layer
• Full range of sizes
ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive has the capacity to absorb and hold high to extra high levels of exudate. It holds up to 50% more exudate than ALLEVYN Adhesive, both with and without compression. ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive can stay in place for up to 7 days, taking into account local clinical protocols.
Convenient Adhesive Presentation
The wound contact layer of ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive is coated with a low allergy adhesive which adheres well to intact skin, will not stick to the wound and has a low risk of skin irritation.
Promotes Early Healing Due to Moist Wound Environment
ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive dressings 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.
Bacteriaproof / Waterproof
The outer polyurethane layer of ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive prevents strike through of excess exudate from the dressing, minimising the chances of cross contamination and wound infection, therefore enhancing patient comfort and reducing healthcare costs. It also allows the amount of fluid in the dressing to be monitored, as progression of exudate can be seen through the pink top film.
Easy to Use
ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive dressings absorb exudate and cellular debris, ensuring minimal mess at dressing changes. Dressing changes are therefore easier for the carer and less traumatic for the patient.
ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive dressings have been designed for wound management by secondary intention on chronic, acute, full or partial thickness or shallow granulating, exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, infected wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, malignant wounds, surgical wounds, first and secondary degree burns, donor sites and fungating ulcers.
Contraindications / Precautions
Do not use any ALLEVYN product with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide solutions as these can break down the absorbent hydrocellular component of the dressing.
In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin may occur. It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly in patients with fragile skin, can result in skin stripping. If redness or sensitisation occur, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.

Select the appropriate dressing size . Prepare and clean the skin around the wound. SKIN-PREP Protective Barrier Wipes may be used if appropriate. Peel back the protector film handles and anchor the dressing over the wound. Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled.
During the early stages of treatment, ALLEVYN Plus Adhesive dressings should be inspected frequently. Dressings can be left in place until exudate can be seen through the outer waterproof film layer and approaches 2cm from the edge of the dressing.
To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and pull it back and over on itself, away from the wound. Sterile water, saline or REMOVE - Universal Adhesive Remover wipes may be used to aid removal of adhesive dressings.
