Molnlycke Mepilex Ag Antimicrobial Absorbent Foam Dressing with Safetac absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. It seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk of maceration. Also ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain or trauma.

  • Advanced Fluid Handling:
    Absorbs exudate, maintains a moist wound environment and provides antimicrobial efficacy
    - Cost effective and easy to use
  • Antimicrobial Efficacy:
    Mepilex Ag releases silver ions when exposed to moisture and moisture vapour
    - Silver ions disperse throughout the dressing and the wound environment to provide antimicrobial efficacy both within the dressing and the wound
    - Inactivates wound related pathogens within 30 minutes1 of application
    - Maintains sustained release antimicrobial action for up to 7 days
  • Minimize Trauma and Pain:
    Promotes undisturbed wound healing
    - Adheres gently to intact skin; does not adhere to moist wound surface
    - Seals around the wound margins to reduce the risk of maceration
    - Stays in place while secondary fixation is applied
    - Promotes patient comfort during application
  • Contraindications:
    Do not use for patients with a known sensitivity to silver
    - Do not use on patients undergoing radiation therapy
    - Do no use on patients undergoing MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
    - Do not use in conjunction with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide
  • Areas of use:
    - Moderately exuding wounds
    - Leg and foot ulcers
    - Pressure ulcers
    - Under compression
    - Graft and donor sites
    - Traumatic wounds (example, skin tears and secondary healing wounds)
  • Safetac Technology:
    Safetac is a soft silicone adhesive patented technology that minimizes pain patient and trauma wounds
    - It is less painful because it gently adheres to dry surfaces, like skin, but not to the surfaces wet and open wounds
    - Wraps the skin pores, thus covering over the surface of the skin, which results in a reduction of strength and thereby the trauma when removal of the dressing
    - Seals the wound margins, ensuring that exudate does not spread to the skin surrounding and minimizing maceration

More Information

  • Directions for Use:
    Gently cleanse the wound; dry surrounding skin. Mepilex Ag will not adhere to a moist surface
    - Apply Mepilex Ag directly onto the wound allowing the dressing to overlap onto the surrounding skin by at least 2 cm
    - Remove the release film and lay adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch. For lower limb applications position Mepilex Ag slightly off centre so more of the dressing rests below the wound than above
    - Secure Mepilex Ag in place with Mepitac, Mefix or other fixation device
  • Precautions:
    - Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver
    - Do not use Mepilex Ag or Mepilex Heel Ag during radiation treatment or examinations example, X-ray, ultrasound, diathermy or Magnetic Resonance Imaging
    - Do not use Mepilex Ag or Mepilex Heel Ag together with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide
    - Mepilex Ag may cause transient discoloration of the wound bed and surrounding skin
    - Mepilex Ag should be used under the supervision of a qualified health care professional
    - Other than saline solution or water, the interaction of cleansing agents in combination with Mepilex Ag has not been demonstrated

I have a question about product #287100, which is Mepilex 4x4 absorbent foam dressing.  For $56.99, it states you can get a 5 pack.  Is this just 1 pack of 5 dressings?
