When to use Mepilex Lite Dressing?

Mepilex Lite foam dressing can be used for the following conditions:
  • Non to low exuding wounds
  • Leg and foot ulcers
  • Pressure Ulcers

Mepilex Lite Safetac Technology

Soft silicone of Safetac technology easily conforms to the uneven skin surface, while other adhesives stick only to the top of the skin surface. This minimizes pain to patients and trauma to wounds. It seals the wound margins to prevent the exudate leakage onto the surrounding skin, thereby minimizing the risk of maceration. Mepilex Lite with Safetac technology also ensures atraumatic dressing changes.


What to buy with Mepilex Lite

 

How to use Mepilex Lite Foam Wound Dressing?

  1. Clean the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly. Cut Mepilex Lite Thin Foam Dressing for customization, if required. Remove the larger release film.
  2. Apply the adherent side to the wound. Mepilex Lite should overlap the dry surrounding skin by 2 cm. Remove the shorter release film and mold the dressing in place. Do not stretch the dressing.
  3. Secure the dressing with a bandage or other fixation, such as Mepitac or Tubifast.

Molnlycke Mepilex Lite User Guide


Molnlycke Healthcare Mepilex Lite Thin Foam Dressing FAQ's

How do you remove Mepilex Lite?

Lift one corner and peel back the dressing along the surface of the dressing (roll it off).

Is Mepilex Lite shower proof?

No, because the edges are not sealed. However, the backing film is waterproof.

Can Mepilex Lite be used on dry wounds?

Yes, depending on the condition of the wound bed. It should then be used in combination with a gel.

Will Mepilex Lite cause any wound maceration?

Because the Safetac layer seals around the wound, forcing the exudate to pass into the dressing and preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, Mepilex Lite reduces the risk of maceration. However, if Mepilex Lite is applied to a wound with a high exudate level for an extended period of time, maceration may occur.

How should Mepilex Lite be stored?

Mepilex Lite should be stored in dry conditions below 95°F (35°C).
