Mepitel One Soft Silicone Wound Contact Layer DressingCode: WC515
Mepitel One is a thin, transparent dressing that conforms to the shape of your wound and should be used in combination with an outer absorbent dressing.
Containing the unique and patented Safetac adhesive on one side of the dressing, Mepitel One prevents the outer absorbent dressing from sticking to your wound (or the skin around your wound). This makes the dressing changes as pain free as possible and also makes sure that the skin around your wound stays dry and healthy.
Mepitel One can be left in place for up to 14 days, depending on the condition of your wound, which means that only the outer dressing needs replacing during the 14 day period as and when needed. Mepitel One is a versatile dressing that can be used on many different wounds when used with an outer absorbent dressing.
Typical wounds that are treated with Mepitel One are:
- Skin tears
- Skin abrasions, blistering and lacerations
- Surgical wounds
- Partial thickness burns
- Leg and foot ulcers
- Highly transparent meaning that your nurse can see the progression of the wound through the Mepitel One without having to remove it
- Low risk of skin irritation and allergy
