Manufactured by Molnlycke Healthcare, Mesalt is a debrider used to clean moderately to heavily exuding wounds, including infected wounds. Mesalt dressing is made of an absorbent, vicose/polyester nonwoven material impregnated with sodium chloride.
This gauze dressing can be used on various wounds, including:
- Heavily draining and discharging infected wounds in the inflammatory phase
- Deep cavity wounds
- Pressure ulcers
- Surgical wounds
The exudate from the wound releases the sodium chloride from the dressing. Mesalt stimulates the cleansing of heavily draining and discharging wounds in the inflammatory phase by absorbing exudate, bacteria and necrotic material from the wound, thereby facilitating the natural wound healing process.
Mesalt wound dressing is easy to apply and remove. Cover the dressing with Alldress, Mepilex Border, or Mepilex Border Lite.
