Mepore Pro Instructions

Contraindications:

Mepore® Pro should not be applied to patients who are sensitive to acrylic adhesives or to individuals who have very fragile or easily damaged skin.

Precautions:

  • Care should be taken to minimize skin tension that could cause mechanical damage to the skin.
    • Ensure that Mepore® Pro is not applied under tension.
    • When applying over joints, be careful to apply in such a way that it does not impair flexibility of joints.
  • • After some surgical interventions, excessive swelling may occur. In such a case, a more flexible dressing such as Mepore® Film polyurethane film is recommended in order to minimize skin tension.
  • • The wound should be inspected for signs of infection according to clinical practice.
  • • In case of clinical signs of infection (pain, redness, swelling or unusual odour or discharge) continued use of Mepore® Pro should be determined by a health care professional.
