As a wound contact layer Mepilex Transfer Ag provides the flexibility to construct the optimal dressing combination to fit a wound type or exudate level. And because all wounds are different, there is a range of different sizes that can easily be cut to the shape and size of the wound. Combine it with a second absorbent layer appropriate for the level of exudate. Allow a good margin of both Mepilex Transfer Ag on the surrounding skin, as well as the second layer covering Mepilex Transfer Ag. Affix, for example with Tubifast. Mepilex Transfer Ag may remain left in place, while only the second layer is changed. It effectively absorbs and transfers exudate to the second absorbent layer, while minimizing trauma to the wound and the surrounding skin, and pain to the patient at dressing changes.
Frequency of change
Mepilex Transfer Ag may be left in place for up to 14 days depending on the patient, the condition of the wound and surrounding skin, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice. It is intended for short-term use up to four weeks. For continued use, a re-assessment by a physician is recommended.
Where to use Mepilex Transfer Ag
Mepilex Transfer Ag is indicated for low to high exuding wounds including difficult-to-dress areas where an antimicrobial effect is required: traumatic wounds (US), partial thickness burns, foot and leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, surgical wounds (donor sites), and malignant wounds (CE-markets).
