What are the benefits?

• Allevyn Sacral dressings are soft and cushioning which provides excellent patient protection and comfort
• Allevyn Sacral has a profiled cross section, narrowing to micro-thin edges which helps to ensure that the dressing remains securely in place. This also helps to prevent accidental removal by shear between the dressing and clothes and bedding.
• The outer polyurethane layer helps to prevent strike-through of excess exudate from the dressing. This also minimises the chances of any cross-contamination and wound infection, which then enhances patient comfort and reducing healthcare costs. It also allows the amount of fluid in the dressing to be monitored.

How do I use Allevyn Life Sacrum?

ALLEVYN Life dressings provide wound management by secondary intention for:

Shallow, granulating wounds
Chronic and acute exudative wounds
Full and partial thickness wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers
Malignant wounds
Surgical wounds
First and second degree burns
Donor sites
Skin tears
Fungating ulcers
ALLEVYN Life may be used on infected wounds. Where the product is used on infected wounds, the wounds should be treated as per local clinical protocol.

Application
To apply ALLEVYN Life follow the steps below:

Cleanse the wound in accordance with local clinical protocol.
Select an appropriate dressing size.
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.
Using a clean technique remove one of the protector films from ALLEVYN Life and anchor the ADHESIVEesive side of the dressing to the skin. Smooth the dressing over the wound ensuring there are no creases. When positioning ALLEVYN Life Sacrum dressings, place the narrow end of the dressing a minimum of 2cm (3/4in.) above the anal sphincter, then smooth the dressing over the sacrum.
Remove the remaining protector film and smooth the dressing over the remainder of the wound without stretching, ensuring no creases. 
ALLEVYN Life can be used to dress awkward areas such as elbows; the dressing corner lobes can be overlapped when positioning the dressing, ensuring no creasing or stretching occurs.

Warnings

Do not use Allevyn Sacrum dressings with any oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solution or hydrogen peroxide. These can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing. There can be cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin that surrounds the wound. If there is inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, especially in patients with fragile skin, this can result in skin stripping. If any redness or sensitivity occurs, please discontinue use.
