Abena Silicone Foam Dressing, 4" x 4" - compare to Allevyn
Abena’s Silicone Foam Dressing is:
- A highly absorbent self-adherent silicone foam dressing;
- Has a soft silicone contact layer, a flexible polyurethane foam pad, and a vapor-permeable, moisture-proof outer film;
- Comfortable and can be cut to fit.
The silicone adhesive sticks to surrounding skin but not to the wound bed, lessening pain and risk of damage to the wound area. The triple-layered construction facilitates dynamic fluid management to provide the optimal moist wound environment, which helps promote faster wound closure and reduce risk of maceration. The gentle silicone layer can be lifted and repositioned without losing its adherence.
Carefully clean the wound and its surrounding area with sterile water or saline solution and dry the surrounding skin gently.
While avoiding contact with the adhesive area by holding the dressing by its transparent release papers, gently apply it to the wound
While avoiding contact with the adhesive area, carefully remove the clear protective plastic films from the pad side of the dressing.
Center the dressing over the wound, all the while avoiding contact with the sterile adhesive area, then gently press in place.
