When to use Mepilex Border Sacrum?
Use Mepilex Border Sacrum for medium-to-high exuding sacral wounds such as pressure ulcers or surgical excision of pilonidal cysts. As Mepilex Border Sacrum maintains a moist wound environment which supports debridement, there might actually be an initial increase in the wound size. This is normal and to be expected.
A part of pressure ulcer prevention
Clinical trials proved that Mepilex Border Sacrum prevents pressure ulcers. The dressing is applied prophylactically in emergency rooms, intensive care or before long surgical interventions. When compared with no dressing and competitors’ products, Mepilex Border Sacrum has been demonstrated to impact four extrinsic factors that can contribute to developing pressure ulcers; these being to redistribute shear, redistribute pressure, reduce friction, and to maintain an optimal microclimate. When adding this treatment to pressure ulcer prevention protocols and strategies, pressure ulcers can be prevented. However, 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.
Dressings with Safetac mean less pain and less stress at dressing change
Using dressings with Safetac drastically reduces pain and tissue damage during dressing changes. A dressing containing a Safetac interface does not stick to the moist wound; it seals the edge of the ulcer preventing maceration and does not strip skin all while maintaining an optimal wound microclimate. This means less pain, less stressful dressing changes, and potentially a faster healing process.

Mepilex Border Sacrum is an all-in-one foam dressing proven to minimise patient pain and trauma to the wound and surrounding skin.
Mepilex Border Sacrum effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin which minimises the risk for maceration.
Mepilex Border Sacrum can add to your prevention programmes for hospital-acquired pressure ulcers by redistributing shear forces, reducing friction, redistributing pressure and balancing the microclimate during wear time. The retention, spreading and absorption layers help in maintaining an optimal moisture level and reducing the risk of breakdowns. These layers are critical in dissipating shear and redistributing pressure. The Safetac layer resides closest to the skin. For pressure ulcer prevention, its elasticity dissipates shear forces and allows for repositioning of the dressing after skin assessment.
