When almost 1,500 clinicians were surveyed about their specific challenges with managing high viscosity exudate, 80 percent felt most challenged by wound enlargement and delays to healing, dressing wear time and skin maceration1.
Eighty-four percent of those surveyed felt that highly viscous exudate influences clinical outcome1.
Only one in ten clinicians saw their currently used foam dressing as fully effective at managing highly viscous exudate1. High viscosity wounds are, according to clinicians, not only challenging to manage but are distressing for patients. It was with these considerations in mind that Mepilex XT was created.
Mepilex XT with Safetac is designed to be used on a wide range of exuding wound healing stages, protecting skin around the wound9,10, supporting faster healing11,12, and helping to prevent moisture-related complications9. With Mepilex XT you have the power to provide better care and can give patients a better outcome.
