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.

How to use Mepilex Lite Dressing?

  1. Clean the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly. Cut mepilex lite dressing for customization, if required. Remove the larger release film.
  2. Apply the adherent side to the wound. It 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.

Precautions

  • It should not be used with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide
  • It should be stored in dry conditions below 35 degrees C (95 degrees F) and be protected from direct sunlight
  • In case of signs of clinical infection, consult a healthcare professional for adequate infection treatment
  • Do not use if inner package is damaged. Sterility is guaranteed if inner package is intact. Do not re-sterilize

User Guide


FAQ

How do you remove mepilex lite dressing?

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

Is it shower proof?

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

Can it 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 dressing 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 mepilex lite dressing should be stored?

Store in dry conditions below 95°F (35°C).

What type of dressing is mepilex lite dressing?

It is an absorbent, soft silicone thin foam dressing. Highly conformable for non-exuding to lightly exuding wounds.
