How Mepore Absorbent Dressing Works?

The porous structure of the nonwoven fabric ensures air and water vapour permeability. The fabric is flexible and conforms well to body contours. The fabric is nonabsorbent and provides a water-repellent barrier for blood and fluid strike-through. The polyacrylate adhesive has been designed to be gentle to the skin while at the same time providing secure fixation. The wound pad provides ideal absorption for sutured surgical wounds and features a low-adherent wound contact layer. Since Mepore is radio parent, it can remain in place during x-ray

Where to Use Mepore Surgical Dressing?

Mepore is appropriate for wounds with low to moderate exudate levels. These include surgical incisions, sutured wounds, Laproscopy and Arthroscopy puncture sites, abrasions, traumatic wounds and cannula sites

Precautions to take While Using Molnlycke Mepore Surgical Dressing

  • Care should be taken to ensure that Mepore is not applied under tension, to prevent shearing force which can cause damage to the skin. This is particularly important when the dressing is applied over joints
  • If reused performance of the product may deteriorate, cross contamination may occur
  • Sterile. Do not use if inner package is damaged or opened prior to use. Do not re-sterilize


Contraindications:Mepore should not be applied to patients who are sensitive to acrylic adhesives or to individuals who have very fragile or easily damaged skin
