Mepore® Self-Adhesive Absorbent Dressing
Mepore® Self-Adhesive Absorbent Dressing is an absorptive dressing for wounds with low to moderate exudate levels, such as surgical wounds.
• Skin-friendly adhesive
• Low adherent wound contact layer minimizes risk of adherence to the wounds
• Easy-to-remove protection paper allows for convenient and aseptic application
• Flexible fluid repellent backing
Mepore® Self-Adhesive Absorbent Dressing is intended for treating low to moderately exuding wounds such as surgical wounds, cuts and abrasions.
Care should be taken to ensure that Mepore® Self-Adhesive Absorbent Dressing is not applied under tension, to prevent shearing forces causing damage to the skin. This is particularly important when the dressing is applied over joints.
Mepore® Self-Adhesive Absorbent Dressing should not be applied to patients who are known to be sensitive to acrylic adhesives or to individuals who have very fragile or easily damaged skin.
