What to buy with Molnlycke Foam Dressing

How does Mepilex Border Dressing work?

Mepilex Border Sacrum foam dressing comprises of five layers which work in the following manner:
  • Safetac layer: Located closest to the skin and helps in the prevention of horizontal leakage
  • Absorption layer: Provides quick and effective absorption
  • Spreading layer: Evenly distributes exudate into the retention layer
  • Retention layer: Prevents exudate from going back into the skin, reducing the risk of maceration
  • Backing film: Waterproof, bacteria proof and highly breathable to protect the wound from outer contamination

Absorption, Retention and Spreading layers maintain an optimal moisture level and minimize the risk of skin breakdowns. They help in dissipating shear and redistributing pressure. The elasticity of Safetac layer helps dissipate shear forces and provides easy repositioning of dressing after skin assessment in pressure ulcer prevention.

When to use Mepilex Sacrum Border?

  • For optimal exudate management with excellent fluid handling and retention capacity
  • For treatment of medium to highly exuding sacral wounds such as pressure ulcers or surgical excision of pilonidal cysts
  • As a primary dressing for shallow wounds or as a secondary dressing for deeper wounds
  • To influence four extrinsic factors that can add to the development of pressure ulcers; these being to redistribute pressure, reduce friction, redistribute shear and to maintain an optimal microclimate
  • As part of a prophylactic therapy regimen, to help in the prevention of skin damage, like pressure ulcers

Mepilex Border Safetac Technology

Safetac is a soft silicone adhesive technology patented by Molnlycke Health Care. It assists in optimizing the wound healing journey. The use of Mepilex Border Sacrum with Safetac technology reduces tissue damage and patient pain during dressing changes. It does not adhere to the moist wound bed, seals the edges of the wound, prevents exudate leakage onto the surrounding skin, reduces the risk for maceration, and does not strip off skin while maintaining a microclimate optimal for wound healing. All this results in less stressful dressing changes, less pain, and potentially a faster healing process.
