Product info

Wound dressing with Safetac silicone adhesive. Mepilex Ag Dressing is indicated for the management of low to moderately exuding
wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and partial thickness burns. Silver
sulfate present in the dressing helps reduce microbial colonization on the dressing

Directions for Use:

1. Cleanse the wound with saline solution or water according to standard clinical practice.
2. Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.
3. Remove the release films and apply the adherent side to the wound. Do not stretch.
4. For best result, Mepilex Ag should overlap the dry surrounding skin by at least 1-2 cm. For the smaller sizes (sizes up to 12.5x12.5 cm) and 5 cm for the larger sizes in order to protect the surrounding skin from maceration and excoriation and fixate the dressing securely. If required, Mepilex Ag can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations.
5. When necessary, fixate Mepilex Ag with a bandage or other fixation

Mepilex Ag consists of:
1. a Safetac® wound contact layer
2. a flexible absorbent pad of grey polyurethane foam containing a silver compound and activated carbon
3. an outer film which is vapour permeable and water, bacteria and virus proof.
Mepilex Ag contains 1.2 mg/cm2 silver 

Contraindications & Cautions:

• Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver.
• Clinicians / Healthcare Professionals should be aware that there are very limited data on prolonged and repeated use of silver containing dressings, particularly in children and neonates.
• Prior to commencing radiation therapy remove Mepilex Ag if product is present in the treatment area. A new dressing can be applied following treatment.
• Do not use Mepilex Ag together with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions or hydrogen peroxide.
• For external use only.
• Mepilex Ag may cause transient discoloration of the wound bed and surrounding skin.
• In the event of clinical infection Mepilex Ag does not replace the need for systemic therapy or other adequate infection treatment.
• The interaction of Mepilex Ag with other topical treatments has not been demonstrated.
• Other than saline solution or water, the interaction of cleansing agents in combination with Mepilex Ag has not been demonstrated.
• Do not reuse. 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-sterilise.
