Mepitel One is a newly launched one sided version of Mepitel that utilizes the product benefits from Mepitel, but is easier to handle. As with the Mepitel, Mepitel One can be left in place for up to 14 days depending on the condition of the wound. This reduces the necessity for frequent primary dressing changes. The porous structure of Mepitel One allows exudate to pass into an outer absorbent dressing. The Safetac layer prevents the outer dressing from sticking to the wound and ensures atraumatic dressing changes. The Safetac layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, thus minimises the risk of maceration.
Benefits of Meptel One:
Areas of use
Mepitel One is designed for the management of a wide range of exuding wounds such as painful wounds, skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds, blistering, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, radiated skin, leg and foot ulcers. It can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and on areas with fragile skin.
Note: If Mepitel One is used on Epidermolysis Bullosa patients, employ extra surveillance at dressing changes. Adhesion level of Mepitel One is somewhat higher than of Mepitel.
