Mepitel Film provides a flexible, transparent covering to protect the skin or wound from microbial contamination, fluid strike-through and from other external contamination while conforming to surface irregularities and body contours.
Mepitel Film maintains a moist environment even though the vapour permeability allows excess moisture to move away from the skin. Mepitel Film provides instant tack adhesion that minimizes the requirement for extra fixation.
Mepitel Film cannot be used as primary fixation for IV, cannulae, ports or other infusion and or life-sustaining devices.
Areas of use
Mepitel Film is designed for a wide range of superficial wounds, such as pressure ulcers category 1 and 2, superficial skin injuries and superficial burns. Mepitel Film protects fragile and sensitive skin. Mepitel Film can also be used as a protective cover for open surgical wound, e.g abdomen, to fix primary dressing, as a secondary dressing and in combination with gels and ointments. Fixation tapes and devices can be fixed on top of the Mepitel Film product; the Mepitel Film is then used as a protective landing zone for the fixation tape.
