Molnlycke Wound Care Mepilex Dressing
Description
  • Absorbent soft silicone dressing consisting of:
    • A soft silicone wound-contact layer (Safetac)
    • A flexible absorbent pad of polyurethane foam
    • An outer film which is vapor permeable and moisture proof
  • Soft and highly conformable foam dressing that absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound environment
  • The Safetac technology prevents Mepilex from sticking to the wound bed yet adheres gently to the surrounding skin allowing easy application of secondary fixation.
  • In addition, the Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or subjecting the patient to additional pain.
  • Absorbs exudate effectively and ensures a low risk of maceration
  • Benefits
    • Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes
    • Stays in place, allowing for quick and easy application of compression or retention bandages
    • Well suited to be used under compression bandages
    • May be cut to suit various wound shapes and difficult-to-dress locations
    • Promotes patient comfort during wear
    • May remain in place for up to 7 days depending on the condition of the wound
    • May be lifted and adjusted without losing its adherent properties
    • Low potential for skin irritation and allergy
    • May remain in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound
    • Can be used in combination with gels
  • Designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and traumatic wounds, such as skin tears and secondary healing wounds
  • Gently expands as it takes up exudate
  • Instructions for Use
    • 1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures.
    • 2. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.
    • 3. Remove the release films and apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch.
    • 4. For best results, Mepilex should overlap dry surrounding skin by at least 2 cm. If required, Mepilex can be cut.
    • 5. When necessary, fixate Mepilex with a bandage or another fixation.
  • Frequency of Change: Mepilex may be left in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice. A change in dressing regimen can result in an initial increased level of exudate which temporarily may require an increased change frequency. 
  • Precautions: In case of clinical signs of infection the use of Mepilex may be continued if proper infection treatment is initiated. Mepilex should be stored in dry conditions below 95°F (35C). Sterility is guaranteed unless inner package is damaged or opened prior to use. Do not re-sterilize.
