Mode of Use/Application

Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly. Remove the release films and apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch. For best results, Mepilex® Heel should overlap dry surrounding skin by at least 2cm. When necessary, fixate Mepilex® Heel with a bandage or other fixation. Tape or film can be used to seal the joints on the sides of the dressing after application.

Removal & Change Frequency

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