Mepilex® Border Sacrum is an all-in-one foam dressing proven to minimize patient pain and trauma to the wound and surrounding skin. It has three main design features: to fit the anatomy of the sacral area; to prevent pressure ulcers, and to create an optimal healing environment for moderate to high exuding pressure ulcers, or other wounds in the sacral area such as surgical excision of pilonidal cysts.
Mepilex Border Sacrum effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac® layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin which minimises the risk for maceration. The Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin or exposing the patient to additional pain.
Mepilex Border Sacrum can add to yourprevention programmes for hospital acquired pressure ulcers by redistributing shear forces, reducing friction, redistributing pressure and balancing the microclimate during wear time. The retention, spreading and absorption layers help in maintaining an optimal moisture level and reducing the risk of breakdowns. These layers are critical in dissipating shear and redistributing pressure.Safetac technology resides closest to the skin. For pressure ulcer prevention, its elasticity dissipates shear forces and allows for repositioning of the dressing after skin assessment.
Made for the sacrum – soft and conformable
Minimises pain and trauma at dressing changes
A combination of excellent fluid handling capacity and retention for effective exudate management with less risk of maceration.
