Mepilex Border Sacrum Foam Dressing creates ideal healing conditions for moderate to high exuding pressure ulcers and other sacral area wounds, including surgical excisions.
How Mepilex Border Sacrum Works
The dressing is sized precisely to accommodate the sacral area, eliminating the need for adjustments or trimming material. The moisture- and bacteria-resistant backing won’t stick to the skin and prevents the formation of pressure ulcers.
Absorbs Exudate: Once applied to the dry skin surrounding the wound, Mepilex Border Sacrum absorbs and holds onto exudate and helps the skin stay moist.
Improved Healing: This process reduces pain, speeds up healing time and prevents additional trauma to the wound and adjacent skin.
Safetac technology helps close the wound’s edges to block exudate from leaking out, flowing onto the patient’s skin and creating post-operative blisters.
The seal it creates is gentle enough that the dressing can be easily changed without damaging the wound or neighboring skin and increasing the patient’s risk of maceration.
This combination is ideal for helping heal pressure ulcers, leg and foot ulcers, skin tears and surgical wounds and as part of prophylactic therapy.
