When to use Mepilex Border Sacrum
Pressure Ulcer Prevention
Prophylactic dressings used as part of a pressure ulcer prevention protocol have been shown to offer significant benefits and are supported by international guidelines.
When looking at the risk factors for pressure ulcers, both intrinsic and extrinsic factors must be considered. General health, nutritional status, skin moisture, age and history of previous pressure ulcers are some of the key intrinsic components that affect the risk for a patient developing pressure ulcers. Extrinsic factors include pressure, friction, shear, and microclimate.
*Note: the use of dressings as part of a prophylactic therapy does not preclude the need to continue to develop and follow a comprehensive pressure ulcer prevention protocol.
Use Mepilex Border Sacrum for medium-to-high exuding sacral wounds, such as pressure ulcers or surgical excision of pilonidal cysts. The dressing maintains a moist wound environment, which supports debridement, so you might see an initial increase in the wound size. This is normal and to be expected.
