Mepore® Pro is intended for use on low to moderately exuding wounds, such as surgical wounds, cuts and abrasions. Mepore® Pro is primarily intended as a dressing for surgical wounds, but it can be used for all wounds with low to medium exudate levels.
Mepore® Pro should not be applied on patients who are sensitive to acrylic adhesive. Care should be taken to minimize skin tension that could cause mechanical damage to the skin. Ensure that Mepore® Pro is not applied under tension, and be careful when applying over joints to apply in such a way that it does not impair the flexibility of the joints.
After some surgical interventions excessive swelling may occur. In such case it may be preferable to use a more flexible dressing in order to minimize skin tension.
In case of clinical signs of infection such as pain, redness, swelling or unusual odor or discharge, continued use of Mepore® Pro should be determined by a health care professional.
Mepore® Pro should not be used for heavily exuding wounds.

Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Open the sterile pack and remove the dressing. Remove the protection paper, exposing the adhesive surface. Position the dressing over the wound without stretching. Firmly smooth the adhesive border onto the skin to obtain proper adhesion. Do not stretch the dressing when applying.
Upon removal grasp the edge and slowly peel the dressing from the skin in the direction of hair growth. The frequency of dressing changes should be governed by the condition of the wound in accordance with accepted clinical practice.
