Moderate/Highly Exudating Wounds
Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly. Mepilex® Heel Ag should overlap the wound bed by at least 2cm onto the surrounding skin. Apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch. When necessary, secure Mepilex® Heel Ag with a bandage or other fixation.
Mepilex® Heel Ag may be left in place for several days, but should be changed before saturation or as indicated by accepted clinical practice.
