New antimicrobial dressing range

Smith & Nephew Woundcare : 11 October, 2007  (New Product)
Smith & Nephew's Advanced Wound Management division has launched Allevyn Ag, which is a new range of Allevyn dressings that combine the superior fluid handling of Allevyn with the antimicrobial protection of silver.
The new Allevyn Ag range of dressings, available in both adhesive and non adhesive variants have the addition of a broad spectrum, sustained release silver. The silver combined with the existing benefits of Allevyn helps to deliver the optimal moist wound environment for the promotion of faster healing.

“The Allevyn Ag dressing is simple to use and we are getting some great outcomes. One patient that had an open surgical wound remarked that the dressing was a ‘miracle’ and very comfortable,' said Paula Kotz as, BSN, RN, C, CWOCN, ET Consultant Services, Asheville, NC, USA.

Commenting on the launch Joe Woody, President, Smith & Nephew Advanced Wound Management said: “The addition of the Allevyn Ag range to the brand will help strengthen our position further in 2008 as the leading global brand within the foam dressings market.

'The new products further build on the major improvements made to Allevyn in 2006 that have been extremely well received by our customers. The Allevyn Ag range will offer even more benefits to our customers and will continue to improve the quality of life of their patients.'

Allevyn facilitates healing by reducing the risk of maceration and maintaining an optimal moist wound environment. Allevyn offers the clinician a clinically proven range of dressings that are cost effective both for the clinician and the buyer. With the addition of Allevyn Ag to the range, Allevyn is able to provide an all in one solution when bacterial colonisation is an issue.
