1. Rapid absorption with minimal swelling:The foam layer allows rapid absorption of both normal and viscous exudate and it is better at handling exudate than comparable dressings .
3. Traps bacteria away from the wound:The superabsorbent fibers in the retention layer prevent exudate containing bacteria from re-entering the wound bed, even under compression. Backing film prevents entry of external microorganisms larger than 25 micrometers .
2. Maximises capacity by channelling exudate:Exudate is channelled away from the wound and over a wider area to increase moisture vapour loss and reduce swelling .
4. Tracks exudate without dressing removal:The Exudate Progress Monitor allows the spread of exudate to be objectively assessed and recorded, without disturbing the wound.
Mepilex® Border Flex may be left in place up to seven days, depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice.Learn more about the dressing by visiting the product page.
