Wound contact layers – Mepilex® Transfer

Effective and comfortable exudate transfer dressing

To maintain a moist wound environment, Mepilex Transfer allows the exudate to move vertically into a secondary absorbent pad. This way, the risk for maceration is minimized. To further minimize the risk, the Safetac® layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin. 

Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes

Transfers exudate away from the wound, thereby minimizing the risk of maceration

Convenient and conformable for difficult-to-dress wounds, can be cut to suit various wound shapes

Promotes patient comfort; thin and comfortable to wear

Mepilex Transfer is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as fungating tumours, epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), and venous leg ulcers. Mepilex Transfer allows the exudate to move into a secondary absorbent pad as Mesorb or Mextra Superabsorbent. The Safetac layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizes the risk for maceration. It also ensures less damage to the wound and skin at dressing changes. Mepilex Transfer can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations. Safetac is a patented adhesive technology that minimizes pain to patients and trauma to wounds.

 

Use Mepilex Transfer

  • For medium- to high exuding wounds
  • For fungating tumours, epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), or venous leg ulcers
  • As a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and/or large areas with fragile skin
  • To provide less painful dressing changes for your patients

 

EXUDATE TRANSFER DRESSING WITH SAFETAC TECHNOLOGY

Mepilex Transfer is a thin and highly conformable foam dressing that absorbs exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. As the Safetac layer seals around the wound, the foam structure of Mepilex Transfer allows the exudate to move vertically into a secondary absorbent pad, maintaining a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer ensures atraumatic dressing changes. Mepilex Transfer can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations. Benefits of Mepilex Transfer

  • Well suited to be used under compression bandages
  • Can be cut to suit various wound shapes and difficult-to-dress areas
  • Can remain in place for several days depending on the wound condition

Areas of use Mepilex Transfer is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as fungating tumours, epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), and venous leg ulcers. Mepilex Transfer can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and/or large areas with fragile skin.

Indications for Use:

  • Venous leg ulcers, especially under compression to maximize efficacy on anti-bacterial dressings or protect peri-wound area
  • Difficult to dress wounds including metastatic lesions
  • Large wounds
  • Wounds on difficult to manage areas including those associated with fragile skin

NOTE: Should be used in combination with an absorbent cover dressing. Can be used under compression.

Directions for Use:

  1. Cleanse the wound area and dry the surrounding skin.
  2. Apply one side of dressing allowing Mepilex® Transfer to overlap the surrounding skin by at least 5 cm.
  3. Remove half of the release film and apply one side of dressing; remove remaining release film and smooth in place. Do not stretch.
  4. Apply an appropriate cover dressing according to wound exudate level and fixate in place.

NOTE: Mepilex® Transfer can remain in place for up to 7 days as indicated by wound condition. The absorbent cover dressing may be changed more frequently if required. Mepilex® Transfer can be cut to size if required.

  • Mepilex® Transfer should not be used with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide.
  • Mepilex® Transfer should be stored in dry conditions below 35°C (95°F) and be protected from direct sunlight.
