Product Overview

MEPILEX Border Self Adherent Foam Dressing

Mepilex Border Self-Adherent Absorbent Foam Dressing


AllegroMedical.com presents The Mepilex Border Self-Adherent Absorbent Foam Dressing. Mepilex Border is an all-in-one foam dressing that effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. The Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain.

Mepilex Border Dressing Benefits

  • Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes
  • Self-adherent - no secondary fixation needed
  • Moisture proof and bacteria proof film backing
  • May be used under compression bandages
  • Promotes patient comfort during wear
  • Designed for ease of use
  • Safetax Technology - Less Painful Wound Management
  • May remain in place for several 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

Areas of use
Mepilex Border is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical incisions, and traumatic wounds, such as skin tears, blisters, abrasions and secondary healing wounds.

Best Uses:

Describe Yourself:
Very knowledgeable user.

I am using this product to protect the vulnerable skin over a bony projection on my spine due to severe scoliosis. I was developing a pressure sore there but the Mepilex seems to have staved of any breakage of the skin and the edema is greatly reduced. I can almost stop wearing the patch but tend to keep it on for protection from chair backs that don't fit my spine. The only drawback I have found is the tendency to wrinkle up on itself over time if it isn't covering a flat surface.

Reliable and relieves worry Verified Purchaser

Pros:

Best Uses:
Long Term Use. Keep In The Medicine Cabinet.
Describe Yourself:
user.

A doctor who is a wound specialist gave me samples because I have a health condition resulting in an open wound that regularly drains and sometimes bleeds. It's on my torso and is worrisome that it will drain through bandages. I have to keep the area moist though. This bandage is excellent. It does not let seepage through. It does not stick to the wound. The sticky borders do not irritate the skin. It can be worn for two days if it's holding up. I sometimes put a sheet of Tegaderm film over it to shower, if I don't want to change bandages yet.

Question:
I just dressed a fairly dry, very shallow pressure ulcer using Mepilex for the first time. I put hydrogel on the wound bed, to make sure it stayed moist, since this is an absorbent dressing. Does that make sense?

Answer:
We used these for a pressure sore on my son's hip per a wound care nurse's instruction. It was suggested that we put a small amount of petrolium jelly around the outside of the sore only to keep the surrounding skin protected. We also used Medihoney on top of the sore to help keep it clean and help it heal. Once the sore was no longer draining the nurses advised us to take the bandage off prior to showers and reuse it. We would be able to get a few day's usage out of it. They are expensive little buggers, but well worth it as they work like a charm.

Answer:
wound specialist "prescribed" over-counter zinc oxide ... this after wound wasn't healing with medihoney and bandage which was always coming off. pressure wounds are healing quickly. zinc oxide cream not as "neat" nor as expensive as fancy bandages ... but it certainly works magnificently.

Answer:
Try Multidex either gel or powder depending on the wound. Fill the gap of the wound to skin level, put mepilex border dressing on top.
