Mesalt®

Absorbent, sodium chloride impregnated dressing

Mesalt® supports the cleansing of moderately to heavily discharging wounds including infected wounds

Absorbs exudate, bacteria and necrotic material

Natural cleansing action supports healing, even in infected wounds

Easy application, easy removal

Creates a hypertonic wound environment which is unfavourable to micro-organisms

Cost-effective, especially for heavily exuding or infected wounds where daily dressing change may be indicated

Maintains integrity even when fully saturated

Areas of use
Mesalt is intended for the management of heavily discharging and discharging infected wounds in the inflammatory phase and deep cavity wounds such as pressure sores and surgical wounds.
Please note that Mesalt is not to be used on low exuding wounds.

How Mesalt works
The discharge from the wound releases the sodium chloride from the dressing. Mesalt effectively stimulates the cleansing of wounds in the inflammatory phase by absorbing exudate, bacteria and necrotic material from the wound, thereby facilitating the natural wound healing process.

Design
Mesalt is made of an absorbent, viscose/polyester non woven impregnated with sodium chloride.

Indications for use:

  • Wounds with moderate to heavy drainage, including wounds with yellow slough or fibrin and infected wounds

Directions for use:

  1. Gently cleanse the wound area. DO NOT BLOT EXCESS MOISTURE.
  2. Fluff Mesalt® and apply to wound ensuring the dressing is contained within the wound margins. Pack loosely into deep wounds.
  3. Cover with Alldress®, or Ete® and Mefix®.
  4. Mesalt® dressings should be changed every 24 hours or more frequently if indicated by wound drainage or existing protocol.
  5. Discontinue use of Mesalt® when there is insufficient wound drainage to fully moisten the Mesalt® dressing within a 24 hour period.
  6. Mesalt® is intended for short-term use up to 30 days.
    NOTE: There may be an increase in the amount of drainage and the size of the wound during initial treatment with Mesalt® due to reduction of edema and removal of wound debris.
