Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly. Remove the release films. Apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch. For best results, the size of the wound pad should overlap the wound.
Mepilex® Border Lite can be used under compression bandaging or in combination with gels, and is shower-proof.
Mepilex® Border Lite may be left in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice.
