Designed for a wide range of exuding wounds, painful wounds, and wounds with compromised or fragile surrounding skin, including pressure ulcers and lower-extremity ulcers, such as venous and diabetic ulcers.
Applying a Mepilex Absorbent Foam Dressing:
- Clean the wound area. Make sure the surrounding skin is dry.
- Select an appropriate dressing size.
- For best results Mepilex should overlap the surrounding skin by at least 3/4" (2 cm).
- If necessary, cut the dressing to fit.
- Leave Mepilex in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound and the surrounding skin, or according to facility policy.
