Absorbent wound dressing. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Allevyn polyurethane hydrophilic foam dressing. Allevyn includes this layer of soft, hydrophilic polyurethane foam that is bonded to a pink semipermeable polyurethane film (upper). When applied to an exuding wound, the foam will absorb excess fluid but maintain the wound surface in a moist condition providing a micro-environment that is conducive to healing. Allevyn may be applied to a variety of exuding wounds of limited depth, including leg ulcers, minor burns, and donor sites. Allevyn is manufactured by Smith & Nephew Healthcare Limited. Magnification: x250 when printed 10cm wide.
