Mepilex® Border Ag

Overview

Mepilex® Border Ag is an all-in-one antimicrobial foam dressing designed for medium to high exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers and partial thickness burns, and where an antimicrobial action is indicated. According to a recent international consensus, antimicrobial action is indicated to help reduce bio-burden in infected wounds and to act as an antimicrobial barrier in wounds at high risk of infection or re-infection1. Infected wounds are painful wounds that need the best of treatment. Mepilex Border Ag is a dressing with Safetac® technology and is therefore proven to minimize pain and skin damage at dressing changes2,3. Mepilex Border Ag provides an antimicrobial activity, as it contains silver compound.
