How Does Mepilex Ag Antimicrobial Dressing Work?

  • Mepilex silver dressing is a soft and highly conformable antimicrobial foam dressing that absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound environment
  • The Safetac technology layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk of maceration.
  • The Safetac technology layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain.
  • Mepilex Ag antimicrobial dressing starts to inactivate wound related pathogens within 30 minutes with sustained effect up to 7 days.
  • By reducing the number of microorganisms, Mepilex Ag may also reduce odor.

Safetac Technology

It is a patented adhesive technology that minimizes pain to patients and trauma to wounds. The Safetac layer is extremely soft and moulds to the uneven surface of the skin to create a large effective contact area. On dressing removal, Safetac distributes the peel force over a large area of the skin under the dressing. The benefit of this is that skin stripping is minimized, the skin barrier preserved and pain minimized at removal.

 3. Hold Mepilex Ag securely in place with a light bandage or
 other dressing retention method  (e.g., Tubigrip, Tubifast, etc.)
