Mepilex® Border Sacrum is an all-in-one foam dressing proven to minimize patient pain and trauma to the wound and surrounding skin1,2. It has three main design features: to fit the anatomy of the sacral area; to prevent pressure ulcers3, and to create an optimal healing environment for moderate to high exuding pressure ulcers, or other wounds in the sacral area such as surgical excision of pilonidal cysts.Helps to prevent pressure ulcers
Made for the sacrum – soft and conformable
Minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes
A combination of excellent fluid handling capacity and retention for effective exudate management with less risk of maceration
Mepilex® Border Sacrum effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment4. By sealing the wound edges, the Safetac® layer prevents the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin. This minimizes the risk of maceration5. The Safetac® layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding areas. This technology also avoids exposing the patient to additional pain.
Mepilex® Border Sacrum can add to your prevention programs for hospital acquired pressure ulcers. The dressing has been shown to help by redistributing shear forces, reducing friction, redistributing pressure, and balancing the microclimate. The retention, spreading and absorption layers help in maintaining an optimal moisture level and reducing the risk of breakdowns. These layers are also critical in dissipating shear and redistributing pressure. Safetac®technology resides closest to the skin. For pressure ulcer prevention, its elasticity dissipates shear forces and allows for repositioning of the dressing after skin assessment.
