Mepilex Border AG
Mepilex® Border Ag all-in-one silver foam dressing delivers a rapid and sustained antimicrobial action to reduce bioburden in the wound. The multipurpose design means you can use it for medium to high exuding chronic and acute wounds, such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, malignant wounds, partial thickness burns, traumatic and surgical wounds.
Mepilex Border Ag can inactivate wound relevant pathogens (bacteria and fungi) within 3 hours, as shown in vitro. An international consensus states that an antimicrobial action is indicated to help reduce bioburden in infected wounds. And acts as an antimicrobial barrier in wounds at high risk of infection or re-infection.
The Mepilex Border Ag design includes Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. That means less pain for your patients during dressing changes.
- Less painful dressing changes
- Rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity
- Retains a high-volume of fluid for effective exuding-wound management
- All-in-one silver foam dressing
- For pressure ulcers and other chronic and acute wounds
When to use Mepilex Border Ag
Mepilex Border Ag is indicated for the management of medium to high exuding wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, malignant wounds, partial thickness burns, traumatic and surgical wounds where a moist environment, exudate handling, gentle fixation and an antimicrobial action is indicated. Mepilex Border Ag may be used on infected wounds as part of a treatment regimen under supervision of a qualified health care professional.
