Mepore Instructions


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


  • Care should be taken to ensure that Mepore® is not applied under tension, to prevent shearing force which can cause damage to the skin. This is particularly important when the dressing is applied over joints.  
  • If reused performance of the product may deteriorate, cross contamination may occur.
  • Sterile. Do not use if inner package is damaged or opened prior to use. Do not re-sterilize.
