How does Mepilex Dressing work?

Mepilex Safetac Dressing is a highly conformable and soft foam dressing designed to absorb exudate and maintain a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer prevents the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin by sealing the wound edges, thus minimizing the risk of maceration. It allows for trauma-free dressing change without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or putting the patient to additional pain.


When to use Mepilex Foam Dressing?

Molnlycke Mepilex Dressing handles fluid effectively with its absorbent foam and backing film. It is ideal for a wide range of low to medium exuding wounds. Whether it is chronic or acute wounds, like diabetic wounds or post-op wounds, it decreases pain at dressing change.
