ALLEVYN Adhesive Sacrum Sacral Dressings 
 
ALLEVYN Sacrum has been designed for a superior anatomical fit on the sacral area to provide enhanced pressure ulcer management combined with the proven benefits of ALLEVYN Adhesive.
 
Features:
  • Shaped to fit sacral area
  • Low allergy adhesive
  • Tapered construction and micro-thin edges
  • Unique trilaminate construction
  • Perforated wound contact layer
  • Highly absorbent central hydrocellular layer
  • Waterproof and bacteria proof outer film layer
  • Available in two sizes
 
Benefits:
Convenient Adhesive Presentation- The wound contact layer of ALLEVYN Sacrum is coated with a low allergy adhesive which is designed to adhere well to intact skin, but not to wounds. The adhesive has a low risk of skin irritation.
Highly Absorbent - In-vitro studies and clinical experience both demonstrate that as healing progresses ALLEVYN Sacrum dressings can stay in place for up to five days. This capacity results from a combination of properties:
  • The perforated wound contact layer allows even viscous exudate to pass into the dressing.
  • The hydrocellular core of the dressing absorbs and holds liquid in its microscopic structure.
  • The breathable outer surface of the dressing allows excess moisture to evaporate away from the dressing.
  • The result is the formation of a wound environment, which allows healing to progress without the need for frequent dressing changes.
Promotes early healing - ALLEVYN Sacrum 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.
Profiled Dressing Edges- ALLEVYN Sacrum has a profiled cross-section, narrowing to micro-thin edges which ensure the dressing remains securely in place and reduces the risk of accidental removal by shear between the dressing and clothes or bedding.
Anatomically Shaped- The unique anatomical design is able to conform to the sacral area moulding into the anal cleft, providing secure management of pressure ulcers and reduced risk of leakage.
Bacteriaproof/Waterproof - The outer polyurethane layer of ALLEVYN Adhesive prevents strike-through of excess exudate from the dressing, and minimises 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.
Cushioned Comfort- ALLEVYN Sacrum dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort and protection.
 
Indications:
  • Exuding, granulating wounds on the sacrum
  • For example; pressure ulcers
