Molnlycke Mepilex Border Ag Antimicrobial Foam Dressing With Safetac


Molnlycke Mepilex Border Ag Antimicrobial Foam Dressing With Safetac is an all-in-one antimicrobial foam dressing designed for medium to high exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers and partial thickness burns, and where an antimicrobial action is indicated. It helps reduce bio-burden in infected wounds and acts as an antimicrobial barrier in wounds at high risk of infection or re-infection. Mepilex Border Ag is a dressing with Safetac technology and is therefore proven to minimize pain and skin damage at dressing changes. Mepilex Border Ag provides an antimicrobial activity, as it contains silver compound.

    - Fibre layer for maximum retention
    - Provides optimal fluid uptake
    - Maintains integrity
    - Conforms to body contours

Safetac Technology:

Safetac Technology

Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Dressings with Safetac technology are atraumatic both during wear and upon removal. These dressings minimize trauma to the wound and the surrounding skin, which minimizes pain to the patient. They also prevent maceration by sealing around the margin of the wound to protect peri-wound skin.

Indications For Use:

Mepilex Border Ag is ideal for wounds with moderate to heavy exudate such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, malignant wounds, partial thickness burns, traumatic and surgical wounds.

More On Mepilex Border Ag Dressing

How Mepilex Border Ag Works?

Mepilex Border Ag is an antimicrobial all-in-one foam dressing that effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, preventing leakage of exudate onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. Safetac technology also minimizes trauma to the wound and pain to the patient. Mepilex Border Ag offers all the advantages of Mepilex Border in conjunction with optimal antimicrobial efficacy and odour control. Mepilex Border Ag inactivates wound related pathogens within 30 minutes of application and maintains release action for up to 7 days. Its antimicrobial properties are effective against a wide range of organisms including MRSA, VRE, and Pseudomonas.

Directions For Use:

Directions For Using Mepilex Border Ag

  1. Gently cleanse the wound; dry surrounding skin. Choose a dressing size that will allow the adherent border to overlap the wound area by at least 2cm. Remove the release film.
  2. Lay absorbent foam pad over wound area. Gently smooth adherent border in place. Do not stretch. Mepilex Border Ag can remain in place for up to 7 days depending on drainage and wound condition.
