Moderate/Highly 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. On dressing removal, gently lift one corner and slowly peel back the dressing. If extra fixation is needed, fixate only on the borders of the product.
Mepilex® Border Sacrum Ag may be left in place for several days, but should be changed before saturation or as indicated by accepted clinical practice.
