Mepitel One. This advanced wound contact layer dressing features Safetac technology on the wound contact side only for easy handling and application. The Safetac layer minimizes trauma to the wound and pain to the patient during dressing changes. A polyurethane net backing offers an open mesh structure that allows for transfer of exudate and application of topical treatments, and it is highly transparent for easy wound inspection. Mepitel One minimizes the risk of maceration, does not leave residues in the wound bed, and does not dry out, according to the manufacturer. Mepitel One may be left in place for up to 14 days, depending on the condition of the wound, which reduces the necessity for frequent primary dressing changes.
