Mepilex® Ag is a soft and highly conformable antimicrobial foam dressing that absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac® technology layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk of maceration. 1 The Safetac technology layer allows that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing
the patient to additional pain.
Mepilex Ag starts to inactivate wound related pathogens within 30 minutes with sustained effect up to 7 days. 1 By reducing the number of microorganisms, Mepilex Ag may also reduce odor.
