This Mepilex Self-Adherent Absorbent Foam Dressing comes with Safetac technology adhesive that gently sticks to the surrounding skin but stays away from the moist wound area. The adhesive perfectly seals the wound around the edges and also ensures a painless and trauma-free removal of the dressing. The Foam Dressing has a layer of comfortable polyurethane foam that helps absorb the exudate from wounds and also supports compression bandages. The backing-film of soft, polyurethane material allows breathability and also acts as a bacterial barrier. It also keeps moisture and external fluids away from the wound allowing the users to have a bath with the dressing in place.
The Mepilex Foam Dressings are suitable for a wide range of wounds including chronic ulcers like venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers and low and moderate exudate wounds. Since the dressing seals the wound edges, it prevents exudate from leaking to the surrounding skin.
The adherent layer also reduces the risk of skin-maceration and while the absorbent foam prevents the formation of tissues within the wound. The breathable and absorbing quality of the foam dressing allows it to handle wound moist up to three times higher than standard dressings. To cover difficult to dress areas, the dressing can be cut or shaped to cover them too. The dressings can secure wounds for up to seven days. They are available in a wide range of sizes to cover small to large wounds.
