Description

Allevyn Ag Adhesive may be used on infected wounds. Where the product is used on infected wounds the wounds should be treated as per local protocol.

Allevyn* Ag Adhesive is an antimicrobial absorbent 3-layer dressing consisting of the following:

  • A SSD (Silver Sulfadiazine) containing absorbent hydrocellular pad sandwiched between a perforated adhesive wound contact layer and a waterproof outer film.

 

Specification

  • The dressing provides an effective barrier to microbial contamination protecting the wound from invasive pathogenic microorganisms, thus assisting faster healing. SSD is effective against microorganisms present in the dressing and in the wound. In the presence of exudate the dressing will help maintain a moist wound environment.

 

Contra Indication

  • Do not use on patients known to be hypersensitive to silver sulfadiazine or sulfonamides
  • As sulfonamides are known to cause kernicterus, Allevyn Ag Adhesive should not be used on females who are at, or near term pregnancy or lactating, on premature infants or on newborn infants during the first month of life.
  • Allevyn Ag Adhesive is not compatible with oxidizing agents (e.g. EUSOL) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing.
  • Allevyn Ag Adhesive may not be compatible with topical anti-microbials.
  • In the event of clinical infection, topical silver does not replace the need for systemic therapy or other adequate infection treatment.
  • In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound may be observed.
  • It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly on patients with fragile skin may result in skin stripping.
  • Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements e.g. EEG and ECG.
  • When Allevyn Ag Adhesive is used on a patient during MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) examination some warming may be experienced.
  • Allevyn Ag Adhesive is not compatible with oil based products such as petrolatum.
  • Allevyn Ag Adhesive is not suitable for use alone on cavity wounds but may be used over cavity wounds as a secondary dressing.
  • As with all products containing silver sulfadiazine the following precautions should be noted, especially when covering a large surface area with the dressing.
  • Use caution in patients with significant hepatic or renal impairment.
  • Use caution in individuals known to have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.
  • Effects of systemically administered drugs may be altered. This can especially apply to oral hypoglycaemic agents and to phenytoin. In the case of these drugs, it is recommended that blood levels should be monitored as their effect can be potentiated.
