    - Adheres gently to the surrounding skin
    - Minimizes trauma and pain on removal
  • Two-Layer Absorbent Pad:

Mepilex Safetac Technology:

Less trauma. Less pain! Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Dressings using Safetac technology are atraumatic both during wear and on removal. These dressings minimize trauma to the wound and the surrounding skin. Safetac technology also helps prevent maceration by sealing around the margin of the wound to protect the peri-wound skin.

How To Use Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite?

  • Gently cleanse the wound
  • Dry surrounding skin because Mepilex Border Lite will not adhere to a moist surface
  • Choose a dressing size that will allow the dressing to overlap the wound area by 1 to 2 cm
  • Cut Mepilex Foam Dressing to the desired size if required
  • Remove one side of the release film and apply dressing to the side of the wound
  • Do not stretch, remove remaining release film and smooth in place
  • If there is a need of extra fixation, apply it only around the margins of the dressing
  • For best results, the size of the wound pad should overlap the wound

Frequency of Change:

  • Amount of exudate produced from the wound will determine the interval between changes
  • Mepilex Border Lite Dressing can remain in place for up to 7 days depending on drainage and wound condition

Precautions:

  • Do not use Molnlycke Mepilex Dressing with oxidizing agents
  • Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing should be stored in dry conditions below 35 degrees C (95 degrees F)
  • It should be protected from direct sunlight
  • In case of signs of clinical infection, consult a health care professional for adequate infection treatment
  • Do not use if inner package is damaged as sterility is assured only if inner package is intact
  • Do not re-sterilize

Warnings:

  • Presence of clinical infection does not prevent the use of Mepilex Border Lite if appropriate antimicrobial therapy is also provided
  • There may be an apparent increase in wound size during the first days of treatment due to moist healing environment
  • Increase in size at first is normal and to be expected

How can it be lifted and adjusted without loss of adherent properties?

Molnlycke Mepilex Border Lite Self Adherent Foam Dressing features Safetac technology. Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. The soft silicone moves into the uneven area of the skin and adheres over a large area on the skin. On removal, no stripping of epidermal cells occurs. The soft silicone layer is therefore intact and still adherent. This in contrast to dressings with traditional adhesives where epidermal cells are being stripped off on removal, blocks the adhesiveness.
