Less painful dressing changes and effective, absorbing antibacterial action in one
Molnlycke's Mepilex Ag is a version of Mepilex foam dressing, but with the addition of silver. The silver activity helps eliminate and prevent bacterial infection in the wound, inactivating wound pathogens within 30 minutes and for up to 7 days. Mepilex Ag is ideal for managing low to moderately exuding chronic or acute wounds, like venous leg ulcers, burns, and pressure sores.
In addition to the bacteria reducing power of silver, Mepilex Ag uses the patented silicone gel Safetac technology to minimize patient pain and wound trauma. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, preventing exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. This antimicrobial barrier dressing is ideal for those with sensitive skin, as it does not stick to the wound bed and is painless to remove and won't pull skin off.
Mepilex silver dressing is highly conformable for better patient comfort, dressing fit and range of motion. Mepilex dressings may be cut to suit various sizes, difficult-to-dress areas and around devices such as external fixators.
