How does Mepilex work?

Mepilex Safetac Dressing is a highly conformable and soft foam dressing designed to absorb exudate and maintain a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer prevents the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin by sealing the wound edges, thus minimizing the risk of maceration. It allows for trauma-free dressing change without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or putting the patient to additional pain.
