ALLEVYN Gentle Border Lite Silicone Gel Adhesive Hydrocellular Foam Dressing is a conformable and light wound dressing. It provides optimal fluid management, lower risk of maceration, extensive wear time and retention, and resistant to leakage.
It easily molds to body contours and hard to dress areas and is showerproof. The bacterial barrier may help reduce risk of infection.
It has a soft silicone adhesive ideal for fragile skin. This also helps ensure minimal pain on removal. In addition to the soft adhesive it also contains a thinner foam core.
ALLEVYN Gentle Border Lite is indicated for wound management by secondary intention on shallow, granulating wounds, chronic and acute low exuding wounds full and partial thickness wounds including:
-Diabetic foot ulcers
-First and second degree burns
Instructions for Use:
Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures.
Select appropriate dressing size.
Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound.
Start to remove the protector material from ALLEVN Gentle Border Lite and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin.
Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound.
ALLEVYN Gentle Border Lite can be cut especially to dress wounds on the heel, elbows, and other awkward areas. Always use aseptic technique when cutting the dressing. Ensure any exposed foam areas are covered with an appropriate film dressing taking care not to cover the entire dressing.
ALLEVYN Gentle Border Lite can be used in conjunction with INTRASITE Gel for necrotic or sloughy wounds.
Do not use ALLEVYN Gentle Border Lite dressing with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. EUSOL) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can breakdown the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing. If reddening or sensitizations occur discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
