Mepitel Film Dressing

Mepitel Film Dressing




Mepitel Film provides a flexible, transparent covering to protect the skin or wound from microbial contamination, fluid strike-through and from other external contamination, while conforming to surface irregularities and body contours. Mepitel Film maintains a moist environment, even though the vapour permeability allows excess moisture to pass away from the skin. Due to Safetac, Mepitel Film provides instant tack adhesion and also ensures atraumatic dressing changes. The dressing does not leave residues and the adhesion level does not increase over time.

Mepitel Film can also be used to significantly reduce the radiotherapy-induced skin damage after radio-therapy treatment of breast cancer. In a recent randomised controlled trial, the severity of the skin reaction was reduced by more than 90%

Safetac Technology:

Safetac is the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. Designed to mould softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound – so you can remove it easily without damaging the skin. That means less pain for your patients. Safetac also protects new tissue and intact skin – so wounds remain undisturbed, to support faster natural healing. Plus it seals the wound margins to protect skin from damaging leaks and maceration. The combination of less pain and less skin damage to support faster healing can also reduce the cost of treatment.

Mepitel Film is not a wound contact layer and does not allow wound exudate to pass through the dressing to a secondary layer. Mepitel Film can not be used as primary fixation for IV, cannula, ports or other infusion and/or life sustaining devices
