  • Mepilex Ag does not stick to the wound or strip surrounding skin, minimizing pain and wound trauma.

  • The Safetac® technology in this dressing keeps fluids locked in, avoiding seepage onto the skin nearby, thus reducing the risk of maceration.
Adding to cart… The item has been added

Mepilex® Ag is an absorbent antimicrobial foam dressing that conforms to the contours of the wound and creates a moist environment. This product features Safetac® technology, a special layer that protects the skin from exudate leakage, thereby reducing the risk of maceration. This same layer allows for dressing changes with less pain, trauma, and exposure to the patient. Additionally, Mepilex Ag can start inactivating wound-related pathogens within 30 minutes, which also minimizes odor. It is also well-suited for compression or retention bandages, as it can be cut to any shape or size and adjusted without losing adhesion. The low potential for skin irritation or allergies makes it an ideal choice for many patients. Furthermore, Mepilex Ag stays in place for multiple days and provides patient comfort during wear.

Antimicrobial absorbent foam dressing

  • Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes
  • Delivers antimicrobial activity within 30 minutes (in vitro), up to 7 days (in vitro) and inactivates a wide range of wound-relevant microorganisms (in vitro)

Safetac®

Safetac® technology. Less trauma. Less pain

In numerous randomised trials, dressings with Safetac® are clinically demonstrated to minimise damage to the wound and skin at removal. By sealing the wound margins, they help prevent maceration. With less damage to the wound and skin, pain at dressing change is minimised. Therefore, several randomised trials associate dressings with Safetac with faster healing and lower total treatment cost.

  • Minimises trauma to the wound bed and  the surrounding skin and pain to the patient upon removal
  • Does not adhere to moist wound bed
  • Minimises risk of maceration
  • Viral and bacteria proof*

When to use Mepilex Ag

Mepilex Ag can effectively manage low to moderately exuding wounds, including leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and partial-thickness burns. Additionally, it can be used in conjunction with compression bandaging.

How to use Mepilex Ag

Learn how to easily apply our all-in-one Mepilex Ag dressing. Begin by cleaning the wound before applying the dressing. For optimal results, the Mepilex Ag should overlap the dry surrounding skin by at least 1-2 cm.

Step 1
Cleanse the wound with saline solution or water according to standard clinical practice. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.

Step One to Use

 

Step 2

Select appropriate dressing size. For best clinical outcomes, ensure that the product covers the wound bed and overlaps the wound edges. Cut to appropriate size (if needed). Remove the release films and apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch.

    These pads are excellent for dressing and treating diabetic foot ulcers. They are very absorbent and I use them whenever I get a foot sore. MCS has the best price for this product.
