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
  • Diabetic wounds

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 Dressing?

How to use Mepilex Lite Foam 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.

The 3" x 3" size is not available. Unfortunately we do not deal directly with insurance companies. Our customers will purchase products then submit the paid invoice to their insurance company for reimbursement. We strongly advise checking with your insurance company first to make sure they will reimburse your purchase.
