can someone tell me the difference between Optifoam and Allevyn. I understand they are both foam dressings, but i work with a nurse that says she will only use Allevyn (more expensive), when i ask her why all she will say is "its better". ok if it is better can someone tell me why???!!!
Sorry I'm not familiar with these names. Are they similar to polymem? What types of wounds are they used for?
edit: just did a search. They look similar to something we use called mepilex. Sorry I don't use either of these brands so can't say if one works better than the other. Their websites have a few selling points though if you google it.
