Mepilex® Ag is a soft and highly conformable anti-microbial 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 minimising the risk for 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 can be used under compression bandages.
Mepilex® Ag inactivates wound related pathogens within 30 minutes with sustained effect up to 7 days5,6,7,8. By reducing the number of microorganisms, Mepilex® Ag may also reduce odor11.
