  • Gently cleanse the wound, dry surrounding skin
  • Mepilex dressing size should overlap the wound area by at least 2 cm

Precautions to take while using Mepilex Self-Adherent Foam Dressing

  • Do not use Mepilex Border with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide
  • Store the dressing in dry conditions below 35 degrees C
  • Protect the dressing from direct sunlight

  • Mepilex Bordered Foam Dressing can be used on clinical infection if appropriate antimicrobial therapy is used
  • Initially, sloughy wounds may appear to increase in size due to moist conditions produced beneath the dressing
  • It is normal to expect an increase in size at first

Mepilex Self-Adherent Dressing Change Frequency

  • Interval between changes will be determined by the amount of exudate produced by the wound
  • Mepilex dressing may be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the wound condition

Mepilex Safetac Technology

Safetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Mepilex Border Safetac technology cause minimal tissue injury during wear and upon removal. It minimizes wound and surrounding skin trauma, which reduces patient pain. Safetac layer seals the wound edges and prevents the exudate from leaking out. This minimizes the risk for maceration.

  • Faster Healing: Mepilex Border with Safetac technology creates a faster wound healing environment. Traditional adhesives may strip the skin, tear the wound and leak drainage back onto the skin. All these things delay wound healing. Safetac layer does not stick to the wound and does not strip the skin. Mepilex Border with Safetac technology absorbs drainage better than other dressings. Along with longer wear time, it provides an optimal moisture and temperature. It results in undisturbed wound healing.

  • Less Pain, Less Stress: Pain from dressing changes is often a result of adhesives damaging the wound and skin. Pain causes stress, and stress delays healing. Molnlycke Mepilex Border foam dressing is designed to be less painful during dressing changes.

  • Comfortable: It is soft, comfortable and easy to use on difficult to dress wounds. Soft silicone Safetac layer does not stick to wound on removal, giving less pain to the patient.

  • Less Trauma: No skin stripping and wound bed adherence. Mepilex Dressing does not damage the newly formed granulation tissue.

  • Unique Sealing Action: Safetac soft silicone adhesive seals the wound margins, protecting against exudate leakage and maceration. Seals completely and instantly, easy to apply and re-apply if needed. Supports optimal moist wound healing conditions.
