Description

Mepore Ultra is a self-adherent, absorbent, and breathable dressing with an outer film layer which protects the wound from water and contamination. It is a skin-friendly, water-based, solvent-free adhesive that provides a gentle and secure fixation. The low-adherent wound contact layer minimizes risk of adherence to the wound, and it has rounded corners for secure fixation, while also having an easy-to-remove protection paper.

Mepore Ultra has an absorbent wound pad of viscose with a low adherent wound contact layer and the polyacrylate adhesive is soft, elastic and non-woven, made of spunlace polyester. It acts as a viral and bacterial barrier, and has a breathable, showerproof film layer.

The backing film allows showering and protects the wound from water and contamination. It also protects clothing and bedlinen from blood or exudate strike-through. Due to a highly absorbent pad and a high vapour permeability of the backing film, Mepore Ultra offers good total fluid handling. The polyacrylate adhesive is designed to be gentle to the skin and at the same time provide secure fixation. The easy-to-remove protection paper permits sterile application, as well as simplifies dressing application. The stability of the fabric/film laminate also supports ease of application.

There are 24 dressings per box.

Size: 9cm x 25cm.

Uses

Mepore Ultra can be used in a wide variety of wounds which have low to moderate exudate levels. These include surgical wounds, minor burns, cuts, and abrasions.

 

Application

  • Open the package and remove one of the Mepore Ultra dressings
  • Grip both overlapping release papers, exposing the adhesive surface and allowing initial fixation of the dressing
  • Position the dressing on the skin without stretching
  • Gently remove the rest of the release papers
  • Firmly smooth adhesive border to obtain proper adhesion
  • Do not stretch the dressing when applying
  • Care should be taken to ensure that Mepore Ultra is not applied under tension, to prevent shearing forces causing damage to the skin. This is particularly important when the dressing is applied over joints.
