When to use Mepilex XT: All exuding wound healing stages 



Clinicians have said that high viscosity exudate, particularly associated with sloughy wounds, is distressing for their patients and can be difficult to manage.

Mepilex XT is designed to be used on a wide range of exuding healing stages, including sloughy wounds3. Mepilex XT with Safetac offers greater comfort and less pain for the patient during dressing changes3. You can now extend good patient care at every stage of the wound healing journey.
