ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy Dressing
The ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressing combines the benefits of ALLEVYN™ with a ‘key-hole' aperture which allows the dressing to fit neatly around a tracheostomy tube or other drain or stoma.
Pink, waterproof outer film layer
Highly absorbent hydrocellular central layer
Non-adherent inner layer
The unique structure of ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressing enables it to absorb large amounts of secretions. This prevents maceration and helps maintain the condition of the patient's skin in the peristomal area.
Easy to apply and remove
The ‘key-hole' aperture in ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressing simplifies applications. If required, the dressing may be cut to shape. Removal of the dressing is also simple and painless, causing minimal distress to the patient.
The breathable OPSITE™ Film forms the outer surface of the ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressing, preventing leakage of secretions through the front of the dressing, providing an easy clean surface and acting as a barrier to liquids.
The advanced design of ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressing minimizes adherence to both the peristomal skin and the tracheostomy tube, reducing trauma for the patient during use and removal.
Soft and conformable
The cushioned middle foam layer offers significant benefits in terms of patient comfort and protection. The non-fibrous construction also means that fiber shedding is not a problem, unlike traditional gauze dressings.
The ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressing has a clean, functional appearance which helps to reassure patients and their caregivers.
High absorbency means that fewer dressing changes are required, which makes the dressing not only more cost effective but also minimizes discomfort for the patient.
ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy is a soft, conformable non-adherent dressing indicated for the management of fluid, secretion, or exudate build-up associated with the use of tracheostomy tubes.
ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressings should not be reused. Do not use ALLEVYN™ Tracheostomy dressings with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions (eg. Dakins) or hydrogel peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing.
