Mepilex® Ag

Mepilex Ag combines the unique features of Safetac technology with the bacteria reducing power of silver. Mepilex Ag goes to work quickly, inactivating wound pathogens within 30 minutes and for up to 7 days. At dressing removal, Mepilex Ag does not stick to the wound or strip surrounding skin, minimizing patient pain and wound trauma.

Mepilex® Features:

Minimizing Trauma and Pain:

  • Does not adhere to moist wound beds
  • Eliminates skin stripping
  • Seals the wound margins to prevent maceration

Reducing Bacterial Burden

  • Inactivates wound pathogens within 30 minutes
  • Inactivates wound pathogens up to 7 days
  • Inactivates a broad range of pathogens, including MRSA

Exudate management and other benefits

  • Excellent conformability for better patient comfort and dressing fit
  • Good exudate management properties
  • Can be cut to suit various wound sizes and difficult-to-dress area

Mepilex Ag Indications: Mepilex Ag is an antimicrobial foam dressing with Safetac technology that is designed for the management of low to moderately exuding wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and partial thickness burns.

Mepilex Ag is not for every patient but for those with wounds that don't heal normally. If the bacterial influence is too high it needs to be reduced in order not to interfere with the wound healing. Common signs of high bacterial influence are shown below:

  • Redness
  • Increasing exudate
  • Odor
  • Signs of pseudonomas
  • Odema
  • Wound healing does not progress normally
  • Spreading redness
  • Patient in pain
  • Increased skin temperature
