When to use Mepilex Border Sacrum?
For high exuding sacral wounds like pressure ulcers – use Mepilex Border Sacrum. As Mepilex Border Sacrum maintains a moist wound environment, supporting debridement, there might actually be an initial increase in the wound size. This is normal and to be expected.
A part of pressure ulcer prevention
Mepilex Border Sacrum is clinically proven to help prevent pressure ulcers from forming at all. The dressing is applied prophylactically in emergency rooms, intensive care or before long surgical interventions. This is connected to Mepilex Border Sacrum’s ability to avoid sheer to the skin and underlying tissue. When adding this treatment to the pressure ulcer minimising protocol or prevention strategies pressure ulcers can be prevented. However, 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. Meaning, support surfaces, positioning, nutrition, hydration, skin care and mobility.
Safetac means less pain at dressing change
When maintaining a moist wound environment it is reasonable to assume that this facilitates healing. Sealed wound edges minimises risk of maceration and post-operative complications. The Safetac® technology means less pain for your patients, easy removal and repositioning of the dressing, no residues in the wound and less odour. Mepilex Border Sacrum can be used in combination with gels.
