• Easy to apply and remove


Mepilex® Absorbent Foam Dressing is indicated for use on moderately exuding wounds, leg and foot ulcers, pressure injuries, under compression, graft and donor sites and traumatic wounds (e.g., skin tears and secondary healing wounds).

Mode of Use/Application

Clean the wound area. Remove the release film. Mepilex® Absorbent Foam Dressing should overlap the wound bed by at least 2cm onto the surrounding skin. Apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch.

Removal & Change Frequency

Mepilex® Absorbent Foam Dressing may remain in place for up to seven days, but should be changed before saturation or else as indicated by accepted clinical practice.

A change in dressing regimen can result in an initial increased level of exudate, which temporarily may require an increased change frequency.

Additional Recommended Dressings

When necessary, secure Mepilex® Absorbent Foam Dressing with a bandage or other fixation.
