When to use Mepilex® Border Lite

Mepilex Border Lite is an all-in-one thin foam dressing, designed for a wide range of low exuding wounds: chronic wounds like diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers, or acute secondary healing wounds such as post-operative incisions or traumatic wounds (incl. sutured wounds). The soft, conformable  dressing maintains a moist wound environment, which provides the wound with an optimal environment for healing. Healing in a moist environment may result in an apparent increased in wound size during the first days of treatment. This is normal and to be expected. Easy to live with, Mepilex Border Lite can be repositioned without losing its adherent properties. Mepilex Border Lite protects the wound by forming a barrier to virus and bacteria (of size >25nm), and is shower proof.

Mepilex Border Lite is a dressing with Safetac technology which means less pain for your patients1 in dressing changes and removal. Mepilex Border Lite is easy to remove and reposition, leaving no residues in the wound or on the surrounding skin, and produces less odour. This makes Mepilex Border Lite an ideal choice for all low exuding chronic and acute wounds such as diabetic or traumatic wounds.

 

Use Mepilex Border Lite:

  • To dress low exuding chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers
  • To dress acute wounds such as traumatic or post operative wounds
  • To dress wounds on areas such as the feet, toes, hands, fingers
  • To maintain a moist wound environment – giving the wound optimal conditions to heal

THIN ABSORBENT, SELF-ADHERENT FOAM DRESSING WITH SAFETAC TECHNOLOGY

Mepilex® Border Lite minimizes trauma to the wound and pain to the patient at dressing changes. The Safetac technology prevents Mepilex Border Lite from sticking to the wound bed yet adheres gently to the surrounding skin. Mepilex Border Lite is ideal for those locations where a thin self-adherent dressing is required. It is a very conformable and gentle alternative to other thin adhesive bordered dressings.

  • Shower proof
  • Can be used under compression bandages
  • Promotes patient comfort; thin and very comfortable to wear

  • Foot ulcers
  • Radiation skin reactions

  • Pressure ulcers Mepilex® Lite is intended for wounds with minimal to low exudate. Mepilex® Lite can also be used for protection of compromised or fragile skin. Appropriate for use under compression and in conjunction with hydrogels.

Directions for Use:

  1. Gently cleanse the wound; dry surrounding skin. (Mepilex® Lite will not adhere to a moist surface.)
  2. Choose a dressing size that will allow the Mepilex® Lite dressing to overlap the wound area by 1 to 2 cm. Mepilex® Lite can be cut to size if required.
  3. Remove one side of the release film and apply Mepilex® Lite to side of wound. Do not stretch. Remove remaining release film and gently smooth in place.
  4. Border with Mepitac® tape to fixate in place or cover with a non-adhesive fixation product such as Tubifast® 2-Way Stretch or Tubigrip.
