What is Mepilex Ag Dressing?
Created to be a versatile antimicrobial barrier, the Mepilex Ag Border Dressing can help reduce trauma and tissue injury in chronically infected wounds. Perfect for using on burns, surgical incisions, and weeping pressure ulcers, the silver ions infused into the foam layer of this bandage work to inactivate common pathogen bacteria and fungi found in purulent drainage. Due to its foam-based design, the Mepilex Ag Dressing also offers comfortable padding to the wound site, which can provide some pain relief to those living with chronic pressure injuries. Offering improved healing times, less painful dressing changes, and powerful antimicrobial properties, the Mepilex Ag Dressing is a must-have in any acute or long-term care setting.
How does a Mepilex Border Ag dressing treat a wound?
Made from a silver-infused absorbent foam, the Mepilex Ag Wound Dressing acts as a physical and antimicrobial barrier between the wound and the outside world. The Mepilex Ag dressing helps prevent chronic infections in even the slowest healing injuries by deactivating the most common pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Additionally, because this dressing is made with Safetec® adhesive, the Mepilex Ag Dressing will not damage vulnerable healing tissue during dressing changes. Available in a variety of different sizes, the Mepilex Ag Wound Dressing can be used on both smaller incisions sites and large vascular ulcers. Able to absorb a significant amount of wound exudate, a Mepilex Ag Dressing can be left on a wound for up to seven days while still providing exceptional drainage control and antimicrobial support.
