Wound exudate is absorbed and transferred into Mesorb by the wound contact layer and the diffusion layer. The highly absorbent core absorbs exudate, while simultaneously providing a good protective and ventilating wound cushion. The fluid-repellent backing prevents external contamination of the wound and protects clothes and bed linen from exudate strike-through. As the backing covers the sides of the dressing, it also prevents side leakage.
Areas of use
Mesorb is intended for use on moderately to heavily exuding wounds. Mesorb can be used as a primary dressing (directly on the wound) or as a secondary dressing, where high absorbency is required (e.g. together with Mepitel® or Mepilex® Transfer).
