How it works
ALLEVYN LIFE Sacrum Foam Dressings effectively absorb and lock exudate while providing an optimal patient experience.5,6,9 The foam and lock away core layers prevent the exudate from leaking onto surrounding skin, which may help reduce the risk of maceration.5,6 The soft silicone wound contact layer ensures that the dressing can be repositioned and changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin, exposing the patient to unnecessary additional pain.7,8 The discretion and change indicator layers minimises unnecessary embarrassment to the patient and shows when the dressing needs to be changed.3,4
ALLEVYN LIFE Sacrum works in the same way as ALLEVYN LIFE.
The discretion and change indicator layers are exclusive to ALLEVYN LIFE Foam Dressings. Together they reduce the visibility of unsightly exudate strikethrough and show when the dressings need to be changed, helping to reduce unnecessary dressing changes.3,4
ALLEVYN LIFE Sacrum Foam Dressings can be left in place for up to 5 days. Dressings should be changed depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin or when exudate covers 75% of the change indicator. Consider changing if the exudate covers more than 50% of the change indicator.

ALLEVYN LIFE Sacrum Foam Dressings are purposely designed for a wide variety of exuding chronic and acute wounds located on the sacrum area.
