Molnlycke Mepilex Heel Ag Antimicrobial Foam Dressing with Safetac is a foam dressing for moderately exuding wounds, leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, partial thickness burns and traumatic wounds. It absorbs exudates and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudates from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. The Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain.
