What are the benefits?

• Allevyn Sacrum dressings are soft and cushioning which provides excellent patient protection and comfort
• Allevyn Sacrum 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 Sacrum?

Step 1:
Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound. Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled.
Step 2:
When positioning Allevyn Sacrum dressings, place the narrow end of the dressing a minimum of 2cm above the anal sphincter, then smooth the dressing over the sacral area.

Step 3:
During the early stages of treatment, Allevyn Sacrum dressings should be inspected frequently. Dressings can be left in place undisturbed until exudate becomes visible and approaches the edge of the dressing. The film backing prevents fluid strikethrough and aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination of the wound.
The frequency of dressing changes is affected by the nature and condition of the wound, Allevyn dressings are designed to be left in place for up to 7 days or advised .

Step 4:
To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and stretch it gently away from the wound. Remove* Universal adhesive Remover Wipes may be used to aid atraumatic removal of adhesive dressings.

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.
