These are the Smith and Nephew ALLEVYN™ Gentle Border Lite Foam Wound Dressing – 2” x 2” Box of 10.
Designed for sensitive skin, Smith and Nephew ALLEVYN™ Gentle Border Lite Wound Dressing is constructed of a lighter foam with a silicone gel adhesive to help minimize pain during removal. These wound dressings are ideal for low to moderately exuding wounds and are confortable and designed to easily conform to the body. Because they are designed for an extended wear time, Allevyn Gentle Border Lite Wound Dressings are highly economical.
Step 1: Clean the wound in accordance with normal methods.
Step 2: Select necessary dressing size.
Step 3: Remove excess moisture from the skin surrounding the wound area. Any excess hair should also be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound.
Step 4: Start to remove the protector material from the dressing 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 make sure the dressing is adhered all around the wound.
Step 6: ALLEVYN Gentle Border Lite can be cut to dress wounds on the elbows, heel, and other awkward areas. Always use aseptic technique when cutting the dressing. Cover any exposed foam areas 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.
We recommend that you do not use ALLEVYN™ Gentle Border Lite dressing with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. EUSOL) or hydrogen peroxide as these can break down the dressing’s absorbent polyurethane component. If reddening or sensitization occurs, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
