Product Description: Mepilex Ag is a versatile antimicrobial foam dressing specially designed for low to medium exuding burns and wounds. This silver foam dressing offers effective protection against wound-related pathogens, providing inactivation within 30 minutes, as demonstrated in vitro. It is backed by international consensus supporting the use of antimicrobial action to help reduce bioburden in infected wounds and act as an antimicrobial barrier in wounds at high risk of infection or re-infection.

Key Features:

  • Safetac® Technology: Mepilex features Safetac® technology, which is renowned for its less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. This innovation ensures that patients experience minimal discomfort during dressing changes.
  • Reduces Trauma: Numerous randomized trials have clinically demonstrated that dressings with Safetac® minimize damage to both the wound and the surrounding skin during removal. By effectively sealing the wound margins, they help prevent maceration, ultimately reducing pain during dressing changes.
  • Antimicrobial Action: Mepilex Ag offers fast (as fast as 30 minutes, in vitro), sustained (up to 7 days, in vitro), and broad-spectrum antimicrobial action (in vitro), making it a reliable choice for wound management.
  • Proven Partial Thickness Burn Solution: Comparative studies have shown that the use of Mepilex Ag can contribute to a reduction in total treatment costs for partial thickness burn patients.

Benefits of Mepilex Ag:

  • Pain and Trauma Reduction: Minimizes pain and trauma during dressing changes.
  • Patient Comfort: Promotes patient comfort during wear.
  • Extended Wear Time: May be left in place for up to seven days, depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin or as indicated by accepted clinical practice.
  • Adjustable: Can be lifted and adjusted without losing its adherent properties.
  • Non-Sensitizing: Suitable for a wide range of patients as it is non-sensitizing.

How Mepilex Ag Works: Mepilex Ag is a soft and conformable antimicrobial foam dressing that absorbs exudate while maintaining a moist wound environment. The Safetac® layer effectively seals the wound edges, preventing leakage of exudate onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk of maceration. This unique Safetac® layer minimizes trauma to the wound bed and the surrounding skin upon removal, ensuring a more comfortable experience for the patient.

Areas of Use: Mepilex Ag is an antimicrobial soft silicone foam dressing suitable for the management of the following conditions:

  • Low to moderately exuding leg and foot ulcers.
  • Pressure ulcers.
  • Partial thickness burns.

Usage Notes: Mepilex Ag may also be used on infected wounds as part of a treatment regimen under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional. It is compatible with compression bandaging for comprehensive wound care.
