Mepitel One with Safetac protects the wound and the skin. It prevents an outer dressing from sticking to the wound, thereby minimising trauma and pain. Mepitel One is designed for a wide range of wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, second degree burns, blistering, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers. Use together with e.g. Mesorb® or for high exuding wounds with Mextra® Superabsorbent, and with Tubifast® fixation.

Mepitel One is indicated for use in conjunction with Avance® or other NPWT systems. Mepitel One can be utilised to protect exposed organs, large veins and arteries, tendons, bones or nerves from the risk of dressing adherence and tissue ingrowth during treatment with NPWT. Download a case study series on use of Mepitel One in conjunction with NPWT.

14 days of undisturbed cost-effective healing
Mepitel One can be left in place for up to 14 days2,3 in order to not stress the wound or newly healed tissue. It will stay in place and not dry out (drying out can cause trauma and pain). The wound can be inspected at any time thanks to Mepitel One´s transparency. Mepitel One promotes optimal, undisturbed wound healing7 as well as a cost-effective treatment5,9

When Mepitel One is used in conjunction with the Avance NPWT system it should be changed every 42 to 78 hours, but no less than 3 times a week or as instructed by the clinician. When Mepitel One is used in conjunction with other NPWT systems, follow the clinician's recommendation reagrding frequency of change.
