Mepitel Film Dressing (Molnlycke)
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 pass away from the skin. Mepitel Film provides instant tack adhesion that minimises the requirement for extra fixation.
Mepitel Film can not be used as primary fixation for IV, cannulae, ports or other infusion and or life-sustaining devices.
Areas of use:
Mepitel Film is designed for a wide range of superficial wounds such as pressure ulcer category 1 and 2, superficial skin injuries and superficial burns. Mepitel Film protects fragile and sensitive skin. Mepitel Film can also be used as a protective cover for open surgical wound, e.g. abdomen, to fix primary dressing, as a secondary dressing and in combination with gels and ointments. Fixation tapes and devices can be fixed on top of the Mepitel Film product; Mepitel Film is then used as a protective landing zone for fixation tape
