Mepilex Border Self Adherent Dressing
Mepilex Border Self-adherent Soft Silicone foam dressing that absorbs exudate effectively, minimizes the risk of periwound skin maceration, and helps to maintain a moist environment for optimum wound healing. The Safetac soft silicone properties allow the dressing to be changed without causing additional trauma to the wound and surrounding skin, or pain to the patient.
Areas Mepilex Border can be used on
Designed for a wide range of exudating wounds, painful wounds and wounds with compromised or fragile surrounding skin, including pressure ulcers; lower-extremity ulcers, such as diabetic ulcers; and skin tears.
How to apply Mepilex Border
Clean the wound area. Make sure the surrounding skin is dry.
Remove the release film, and apply the dressing to the wound. Don't stretch the dressing.
How to remove Mepilex Border
Mepilex Border can be left in place for 5 to 7 days, depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice. Mepilex Border should be changed when exudate is present at the pad edges.
