When to use Mepilex Border Post-Op
You can use Mepilex Border Post-Op 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. Sizes 20 cm and larger have an absorbent pad made for highly-exuding wounds. The smaller sizes have an absorbent pad for moderate- to highly-exuding wounds. All Mepilex Border Post-Op have the same, highly-absorbent pad.
Frequency of change
You can leave Mepilex Border Post-Op 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.
