Mepitel is a thin, semi-transparent wound contact layer that can be used on many different wounds when paired with an outer absorbent dressing. Mepitel can be used to treat:
Mepitel dressing features the unique and patented Safetac adhesive on both sides of the dressing. This soft silicone technology help prevent the outer absorbent dressing from sticking to the wound or the skin around the wound. The Safetac layer also seals the wound edges and prevents exudate from leaking, thus minimizing the risk of maceration. Mepitel can easily be removed without causing pain to the patient during dressing changes.
Mepitel silicone dressing has a porous, open mesh structure that allows exudate to transfer into a secondary absorbent dressing. The mesh structure also allows for application of topical agents onto an outer absorbent pad.
This wound contact layer is transparent for easy wound inspection. The dressing can be cut to size and conforms well to body contours. Mepitel has a low potential for skin irritation and allergy.
Mepitel wound dressing can be left in place for up to 14 days depending on the condition of the wound. The long wear time reduces the need for frequent primary dressing changes. When removed, the dressing does not leave any residue.
Instructions for use
Frequency of change:
Mepitel can be left in place for up to 14 days depending on the condition of the wound (exudate should pass freely through the dressing and the pores should not be blocked). If saturated, the secondary absorbent dressing pad should be changed with the Mepitel left in place. Mepitel is a single use dressing. If the condition of the wound deteriorates unexpectedly, consult a healthcare professional for the appropriate medical treatment.
When Mepitel is used on burns treated with meshed grafts or after facial resurfacing imprints can occur if the product is not used properly.
