Allevyn Tracheostomy Dressing

Brand/Manufacturer: SMITH & NEPHEW
  • FSA Approved

Allevyn Tracheostomy Dressing comes with a Keyhole aperture which allows the dressing to fit neatly around a tracheostomy tube or other drain or stoma. This tracheostomy dressing comes in pink color and features a waterproof outer film layer. It prevents maceration and helps maintain the condition of the skin in the peristomal area. Allevyn's breathable OPSITE film forms the outer surface of the dressing, preventing leakage of secretions through the front of the dressing, providing an easy-clean surface, and acting as a barrier to liquids.
