How Do Mepilex Border Sacrum Dressings Work?

Mepilex Border Sacrum Dressings use five unique layers designed to draw in exudate and create a moist healing environment. As this occurs, Safetac technology closes off the wound’s edges to reduce leaks and potential maceration risks and prevents the dressing from sticking to the wound bed. This combination allows for secure, trauma-free dressing changes that minimize patient pain. Sized precisely to the sacral area, Sacrum Dressing achieves this by:

  • Absorbing Exudate:
    Once applied to the dry skin surrounding the wound, Mepilex Border Sacrum dressings absorb and hold onto exudate, help the skin stay moist, and assist with debridement. Mepilex Sacral Dressing is ideal for medium- to high-exudate sacral wounds following the surgical excision of pilonidal cysts.
  • Improved Healing:
    This process reduces pain, speeds up healing time, and prevents additional wounds and adjacent skin trauma.
  • Pressure Ulcer Prevention:
    Mepilex Border Sacrum Dressings lessen pressure ulcer development risks by up to 88 percent when used with a comprehensive prevention plan. Particularly, Deep Defense technology lessens pressure, shearing, and friction and better manages the skin’s climate.
