ALL-IN-ONE FOAM SACRUM DRESSING

Mepilex Border Sacrum

Five-layer foam dressing for pressure ulcer prevention and management of sacral wounds.

Mepilex® Border Sacrum all-in-one dressing is the only five-layer foam sacral dressing with proprietary Deep Defense TechnologyTM – proven to prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with other standard prevention protocols1,2,3.

The design also creates an optimal healing environment for managing moderate- to high-exuding wounds of the sacral area. It effectively absorbs and retains fluid4,5 and it balances moisture minimising the risk of maceration 6,7.

This recently-launched enhanced design includes new handling tabs and thicker borders allowing easier application and patient checking. When used for pressure ulcer prevention, the sacral shape has been refined so you can achieve good coverage of the high-risk sacral area – and it features an improved gluteal seal for maximum protection8.

The enhanced design still includes Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. So the dressing moulds softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound9 – you can remove it easily without damaging the skin9. That means less pain for your patients9.

Proven to prevent pressure ulcers – by up to 88% – when used with other standard prevention protocols 1,2,3

 

Reduces risk of maceration6

Excellent fluid-handling capacity and retention12

Proprietary Deep Defense™ Technology protects against the extrinsic forces - pressure, shear and friction; and manages micro-climate, the key factors responsible for pressure ulcers 10,11

Mepilex® Border with Safetac technology minimises pain during dressing changes9.

Treatment

Use Mepilex Border Sacrum for medium-to-high exuding sacral wounds, such as pressure ulcers. The dressing maintains a moist wound environment, which supports debridement, so you might see an initial increase in the wound size. This is normal and to be expected.

Pressure ulcer prevention

A recent randomised controlled trial in the USA revealed a statistically significant effect of Mepilex Border Sacrum in reducing the incidence of hospital acquired pressure ulcers – by 88% 2 You can apply the dressing prophylactically for at risk patients13 , such as the immobile, those with poor skin perfusion and impaired skin condition, in emergency rooms, in intensive care, or before and during long surgical interventions. Scientific studies have demonstrated that Mepilex Border Sacrum has the ability to impact on four extrinsic factors that can contribute to developing pressure ulcers: by minimising and redistributing shear, redistributing pressure, reducing friction, and maintaining an optimal microclimate10,11.

Note: the use of dressings as part of a prophylactic therapy does not preclude the need to continue to develop and follow a comprehensive pressure ulcer prevention protocol.
