Instructions for use
Mepilex can be used by lay persons under supervision of health care professionals.
1.Cleanse the wound in accordance with clinical practice.
2.Dry the surrounding skin thoroughly.
3.Select an appropriate dressing size. Mepilex should cover the dry surrounding skin by at least 1-2 cm for the smaller sizes (sizes up to 12.5x12.5 cm) and 3-5 cm for the larger sizes in order to protect the surrounding skin from maceration and fixate the dressing securely. If required, Mepilex can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations.
4.Remove the first release film and apply the adherent side to the wound.
5.Remove the remaining release film and smooth down the dressing on the skin. Do not stretch.
6.When necessary, fixate Mepilex with a bandage or other fixation.

The dressing change interval may be several days. Change the dressing before it is fully saturated, at signs of leakage, or as indicated by clinical practice.
Mepilex can be used under compression bandaging and in combination with gels.
Disposal should be handled according to local environmental procedures.
