Mepitel Soft Silicone Wound Contact 290710 7.5cm x 10cm Single

Description:

Soft wound contact layer with Safetac silicone adhesive. Mepitel is a meshed non-adherent wound contact layer allowing passage of exudate and providing fixation and protection of tissues.
Mepitel is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, sutured wounds, partial thickness burns, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic foot ulcers, venous and arterial leg ulcers.
Mepitel can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds, blisters, fragile skin and exposed fragile tissues.

Directions for Use:

1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures and dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.
2. Choose a size of Mepitel that covers the wound and the surrounding skin by at least 2 cm. If required, Mepitel can be cut.
3. While holding the larger protective film, remove the smaller one. Moisten gloves to avoid adherence to Mepitel.
4. Apply Mepitel over the wound and remove the remaining protective film. Smooth Mepitel in place onto the surrounding skin, ensuring a good seal. If more than one piece of Mepitel is required, overlap the dressings, making sure that the pores are not blocked.
5. Apply a secondary absorbent dressing pad on top of Mepitel. In contoured or jointed areas (e.g. under arm, under breast, inner elbow, groin, deep wounds), ensure sufficient padding is applied to keep the Mepitel held flat against the surface of the wound.
6. Fix in place with a suitable fixation device

Dressing material content: 

Silicone, polyamide.

Contraindications & Cautions:

• If you see signs of infection e.g. fever or the wound or surrounding skin becoming red, warm or swollen, consult a health care professional for appropriate treatment.
• When used on partial thickness burns with high risk of rapid granulation or after facial resurfacing: avoid placing pressure upon the dressing, lift and reposition the dressing at least every second day.
• When used on bleeding wounds or wounds with high viscosity exudate, Mepitel should be covered with a moist absorbent dressing pad.
• When Mepitel is used for the fixation of skin grafts and protection of blisters, the dressing should not be changed before the fifth day post application.
• Do not use Mepitel on patient and/or user with known hypersensitivity to the ingoing materials/components of the product.
• Do not reuse. If reused performance of the product may deteriorate, cross contamination may occur.
• Sterile. Do not use if inner package is damaged or opened prior to use. Do not re-sterilise.
