How Mesalt works?

Molnlycke Mesalt Impregnated Dressing is applied dry. When it absorbs drainage the crystalline sodium chloride dissolves to create a hypertonic environment. This environment naturally wicks drainage, debris and edema into the dressing and supports the natural cleansing mechanism of the wound while providing a moist wound healing environment.

How To Use Mesalt Impregnated Dressing?

Mesalt Directions For Use

  1. Gently cleanse the wound area. Do not blot excess moisture.
  2. Fluff Mesalt and apply to wound ensuring the dressing is contained within the wound margins. Pack loosely into deep wounds.
  3. Cover with Alldress, or Ete and Mefix.

Mesalt Dressing Change Frequency

  • Mesalt dressings should be changed every 24 hours or more frequently if indicated by wound drainage or existing protocol.

Important Note:

  • Discontinue use of Mesalt when there is insufficient wound drainage to fully moisten the Mesalt dressing within a 24 hour period
  • Mesalt is intended for short-term use up to 30 days
  • There may be an increase in the amount of drainage and the size of the wound during initial treatment with Mesalt due to the reduction of edema and removal of wound debris

Mesalt Contraindications

  • Wounds with little or no drainage


  • Mesalt should not come into direct contact to exposed bone or tendon.
  • Mesalt should not be used on patients with a known allergy to the dressing or its components.
  • Mesalt should not be used on dry wounds.
  • Infected wounds should be evaluated on a regular basis and treated appropriately.
  • Do not reuse. If the reused performance of the product may deteriorate, cross-contamination may occur.
