Mepitel® One has an open mesh structure that allows for transfer of exudate and application of topical treatment. Safetac® technology reduces pain and trauma during dressing changes.
• Full transparency for quick and easy wound inspection during application and during wear
• Can remain in place for up to 14 days, which enables less frequent dressing changes
• Maintains product properties over time, leaves no residues and does not dry out
• Conforms well to body contours, promoting patient comfort during wear
• Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes
• Easy to use
• Low potential for skin irritation and allergy
• Minimizes the risk of maceration
Mepitel® One is indicated for the management of a wide range of exuding wounds such as painful wounds, skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, partial-thickness burns, traumatic wounds, blistering, lacerations, partial- and full-thickness grafts, radiated skin and leg and foot ulcers. Can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and on areas with fragile skin.
When used on burns treated with meshed grafts or after facial resurfacing, imprints can occur if the product is not used properly.
Sterility is guaranteed unless inner package is damaged or opened prior to use. Do not re-sterilize.
The wound should be inspected for signs of infection according to clinical practice. Consult a health care professional for the appropriate medical treatment.
If used on epidermolysis bullosa patients, employ extra surveillance at dressing changes. Adhesion level of Mepitel® One is somewhat higher than that of Mepitel®.
When used on burns treated with meshed grafts, avoid placing unnecessary pressure on the dressing.
When used after facial resurfacing, avoid placing pressure upon the dressing. Lift and reposition the dressing at least every second day.
When used on bleeding wounds or wounds with high-viscosity exudate, Mepitel® One should be covered with a moist, absorbent dressing pad.
When used for the fixation of skin grafts, the dressing should not be changed before the fifth day post-application.

Non/Minimally Exudating Wounds
Partial- and Full-Thickness Grafts
Clean the wound in accordance with clinical practice and dry the surrounding skin. Choose a size of Mepitel® One that covers the wound and the surrounding skin by at least 2cm. For larger wounds, more overlap is required. If more than one piece of Mepitel® One is required, overlap the dressings, making sure that the holes are not blocked. Remove the protective film by using the overlapping grip edge and apply Mepitel® One with the tacky side to the wound. Remove the remaining protective film and smooth Mepitel® One in place onto the surrounding skin, ensuring a good seal. Apply a secondary a,bsorbent dressing on top and fixate.
Mepitel® One may be left in place for up to 14 days, depending on the condition of the wound and surrounding skin (exudate should pass freely through the dressing, and the pores should not be blocked), or as indicated by accepted clinical practice. If saturated, the secondary absorbent dressing should be changed with the Mepitel® One left in place. Mepitel® One is a single-use dressing.
