Mepitel DressingsWhat are Mepitel Dressings?

The Mepitel Dressing is non-absorbent and non-adherent dressing that contains apertures or pores approximately 1mm in diameter, allowing the passage of exudate into a secondary absorbent dressing. The dressing consists of a flexible polyamide net coated with soft silicone. The dressing prevents maceration and the silicone coating facilitates application and retention of the dressing to the peri-wound area. There are three kinds of Mepitel Dressings available at Wound Care. These are:

1)Mepitel Dressings
This Mepitel Dressing has an open mesh design and enable good transfer of exudate to a secondary dressing. You can easily inspect the wound as these are transparent dressings.

3)Mepitel One Dressings
The Mepitel One Dressing is supposed to be used with an outer absorbent dressing. With perforated structure, it allows exudate to pass vertically into a secondary absorbent dressing. This is a one- sided wound contact layer.
