Mepilex Transfer Ag celebrates 10 years of providing gentle and undisturbed wound care
A decade ago, the antimicrobial foam exudate transfer dressing Mepilex® Transfer Ag was introduced as a new option for HCPs and patients in wound management. Since then, this dressing has contributed to providing gentle treatment for patients with exuding burns and wounds across the world.
Mepilex Transfer Ag is especially appreciated by burn specialists and burn survivors. Thanks to the silicone contact layer Safetac®, pain can be minimised to the patient during dressing removal, which otherwise is a strong contributor to stress and anxiety which may delay healing. The dressing also enables fewer primary dressing changes, as it allows vertical flow of exudate into a secondary absorbent dressing. Since the dressing can stay in place for up to 14 days, it contributes to undisturbed wound healing, while delivering antimicrobial activity throughout the treatment period. Mepilex Transfer Ag is also easy to use and conforms well to hard-to-dress areas of the body.
Listen to what the clinicians have to say about Mepilex Transfer Ag. Dr. Marcus Barroso, from Salvador State General Hospital in Brazil, and Dr. Dulayanat Aranyapala, from the Phyathai Sriracha Hospital in Thailand have both kindly shared their personal reflections about Mepilex Transfer Ag and its role in treating burns.
