Mepilex Border Foam Dressing Features

Benefits of Mepilex Border:

  • Self-Adherent Absorbent Foam Dressing advanced fluid handling capability and dynamic permeability
  • Adheres very gently to the surrounding skin but does not adhere to the moist wound tissue
  • Minimizes trauma to the wound, peri-wound area, and pain to the patient
  • Multi-layered wound pad construction promotes optimal moisture balance and fluid uptake
  • Soft edges help protect sensitive skin
    Viral proof, bacteria proof and waterproof film protects the patient and the clinician
  • Variety of Mepilex Border Dressing sizes makes it ideal for small to large wounds - even those located in the challenging areas of the body
  • Can remain in place for up to 7 days depending on the wound condition and exudate level
  • Mepilex Border Self-Adherent Foam Dressing conforms to body contours
  • Used as part of a prophylactic regimen to help prevent skin damage such as pressure ulcers
  • Acts on 4 extrinsic factors that contribute to the development of pressure ulcers:
    • redistribute shear
    • redistribute pressure
    • reduce friction
    • maintain an optimal microclimate
  • Handles more wound fluid for ultimate security and protection
  • Repositions with ease after skin assessment
  • Individually wrapped in paper/plastic laminated peel pouches, sterilized by ethylene oxide

How Does Mepilex Border Foam Dressing Work?

    Molnlycke Mepilex Border Self-Adherent Foam Dressing

  • Backing Film with Increased Breathability: Viral proof, bacteria proof and shower-proof film. High permeability allows effective vapor transmission.
  • Absorbent Retention Layer: Locks in moisture and keeps it away from the skin.
  • Spreading Layer: Evenly distributes moisture to maximize the surface area of retention layer.
  • Foam Pad with Enhanced Moisture Control: Attracts moisture rapidly.
  • Safetac Technology Wound Contact Layer: Found nearest to the skin. Reduces pain to patients at dressing changes and does not cause skin reactions.

What Is Mepilex Border Used For?

  • For optimal exudate management - offers a combination of excellent fluid handling capacity with least risk of maceration
  • For chronic wounds like diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers
  • To prevent pressure ulcer development when used in addition to the standard pressure ulcers prevention protocols
  • To maintain a moist wound environment that absorbs and retains exudate
  • As a primary dressing on shallow wounds or as a cover dressing for deeper wounds
  • For dry/necrotic wounds in combination with gels
  • Under compression bandaging
  • Wounds with moderate to heavy exudate
  • Traumatic wounds like skin tears
  • Painful wounds
  • Peri-wound skin
  • Surgical wounds

How To Use Mepilex Border Dressing?

  • Gently cleanse the wound, dry surrounding skin
  • Dressing size should overlap the wound area by at least 2 cm
  • Remove the release film
  • Apply dressing with the adherent side to the wound
  • Do not stretch
  • When used on an extremity, position Mepilex slightly below the center of the wound to avoid leakage caused by gravitation
  • If needed, fix Mepilex Border Wound Dressing with Mepitac tape, secondary fixation product like Tubifast or compression bandage
  • Apply extra fixation only around the margins of the dressing

Precautions:

  • Consult a health care professional for adequate treatment in case of clinical infection
  • Do not use Mepilex Border with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide
  • Store Mepilex Wound Dressing in dry conditions below 35 degrees C
  • Protect the dressing from direct sunlight

Warnings:

  • 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 increase in size at first

Frequency of Change:

  • Interval between changes will be determined by the amount of exudate produced by the wound
  • Mepilex Border Foam 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 in 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. Mepilex soft silicone foam dressing is designed to be less painful during dressing changes.

Comfortable:
Mepilex with border 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 Border Self-Adherent Foam 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.
