Product Overview:

MEPILEX Absorbent Soft-Silicone Foam Dressing


MEPILEX Absorbent Soft-Silicone Foam Dressing is a 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. Mepilex absorbs exudate effectively and ensures a low risk of maceration.

  • Promotes patient comfort during wear
  • May be lifted and adjusted without losing its adherent properties
  • Minimizes the risk of maceration
  • May remain in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound
  • May be used under compression bandages
  • May be cut to size
  • Easy to apply
  • Safetax Technology - Less Painful Wound Management

  • Leg and foot ulcers

Great dressing

Pros:
Effective. Easy To Use.
Best Uses:
Long Term Use. Keep In The Medicine Cabinet.
Describe Yourself:
Registered Nurse. Cancer survivor.

After having radiation treatments for breast cancer, my oncologist recommended Mepilex dressing to keep the moisture on my skin. I had several second degree burns and I applied aloe gel as directed alternating with vitamin E oil then applied mepilex dressing. I found that the adhesive side did not irritate or hurt my already sensitive skin but instead kept the ointment in place. I was able to reuse the dressing. I think the doctor said it could be applied up to 14 hours.

Great for bed sores

Pros:
Effective. Easy To Use. Safe. Removable . Long lasting.
Best Uses:
Keep In The Medicine Cabinet. Bed sore abrasion. Long Term Use.
Describe Yourself:
Cancer survivor. Parent.

We are using these for bed sores and they are great. They are expensive but because they are removable and can be re-applied, it's not so bad. The 'adhesive' is very gentle and doesn't disturb tender or even slightly open skin. The padding is thick enough to help prevent further abrasion in long term bed patients.

Report
A:
If the wound is weepy or oozing, apply sticky side (no latex) without ointment to absorb wetness. When the wound was dry, I applied Aloe Vesta 3 to the area and then cover. I check every two days, clean with Aloe Vesta 1, reapply Aloe Vesta 3 and then use the same dressing for a second two days. I was told to frame the outer edge with wide "2" Gentle paper tape so the Mepilex does not move. Working great!
