When to use Mepilex Surgical
You can use Mepilex Surgical for exuding acute wounds such as surgical wounds, cuts and abrasions. The design is specifically suited to post-op use for surgical wounds and blood absorption. The Flex technology makes it very conformable – ideal for surgical wounds over joints such as hips and knees .
We’ve sized each dressing based on the absorbency you will need, plus flexibility and stay-on-ability.
Frequency of change
You can leave Mepilex Surgical in place for up to seven days, depending on the condition of your patient’s wound and the surrounding skin; or as indicated by your organisational procedures or accepted clinical practice.
