Lyofoam Extra Adhesive is made from a layer of Lyofoam with an additional outer layer of non-woven viscose fibres treated with activated carbon and encapsulated by a thin layer of polyurethane foam.
Lyofoam Extra Adhesive consists of a piece of Lyofoam that is heat-bonded around the perimeter to a sheet of plain polyurethane foam. A layer of a non-woven fabric, impregnated with activated carbon granules, is sandwiched between the two polyurethane sheets.; and it absorbs the noxious odours associated with certain types of wounds. The substances that are responsible for the formation of odour appear to be partly retained within the foam itself, but the principal odour-absorbing ability of the dressing is due to the presence of the activated charcoal.
Method of use
A size of Lyofoam E is chosen that will overlap the edges of the wound by a minimum of 4-5 cm. No secondary dressings are generally required. On areas that are particularly difficult to dress, such as the heels or the sacral region, the dressing may be held in position with a dressing retention sheet, such as Hypafix. As sloughy or necrotic wounds are debrided, it is important that they are cleansed thoroughly during dressing changes with sterile normal saline or a solution of a suitable antiseptic agent.
