The Mepilex Self-Adherent Foam Dressing, by Molnlycke, is a absorbent dressing that treats a variety of wounds as a primary application. The dressing uses Safetac technology, which is a special adhesive that reduces the amount of irritation to the skin and healing wound tissues when removed. This is one of the more popular high-end dressings, especially among those treating leg ulcers due to pressure or diabetes.
These absorbent dressings are designed to handle a range of wound severity -- from low to medium exudating wounds, including post-op wounds or diabetic wounds. They are also good for both chronic and acute wounds and conform well to the wound bed. And to get a better fit, Mepilex can also be cut and shaped. For patients, this dressing is great, mainly because of the reduction of pain that they expect normally from other dressings. It peels off softly and will mean lower stress and a better healing experience for both patient and caregiver.
Mepilex Self-Adherent Foam Dressings are ideal for treating the following wound types:
- Venous leg ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
Look to Tubifast Tubular Retention Dressing for a secondary wrap over Mepilex.
