When to use Mepilex
Mepilex is designed for a wide range of low- to medium-exuding wounds. You can customize Mepilex by cutting it to fit an individual wound or body location. This makes it ideal for difficult-to-dress areas. You can use Mepilex together with our Tubifast® fixation.
How to use Mepilex
Always clean the wound prior to applying a dressing. The dressing should overlap the wound bed by at least 2 cm onto the surrounding skin. Use Tubifast when fixation is necessary.
