Mepilex® Border Sacrum Ag is an all-in-one, antimicrobial, foam dressing. It is designed for medium to highly exuding wounds showing signs of infection or are at risk for infection. Mepilex® Border Sacrum Ag may be used on pressure ulcers, traumatic wounds, and secondary healing wounds. The soft, conformable dressing maintains a moist wound environment, which provides the wound with an optimal healing environment. Safetac technology seals the wound edges and thus minimizes the risk of maceration6.
As pain is one of the typical clinical signs of infection, most infected wounds are painful. Mepilex® Border Sacrum Ag, with Safetac® technology, causes less pain for patients during dressing changes. Mepilex® Border Sacrum Ag contains silver sulfate. The antimicrobial properties of silver sulfate helps to inactivate wound related pathogen after 30 minutes. This silver technology will kill a wide range of bacteria for up to 7 days4.
