Melolin Dressing 10cm x 10cm
Melolin consists of a film of poly(ethylene terephthalate)onto which is an bonded absorbent layer consisting of a mixture of cotton and polyacrylonitrile fibres backed with a layer of an apertured non-woven cellulose fabric used to dress, dry sutured wounds, superficial cuts, abrasions and other lightly weeping lesions.
How the Product Works? - The plastic film is present to prevent the dressing adhering to the surface of the wound and is perforated to allow the passage of exudate from the wound into the body of the pad, may be used as the primary wound contact layer for more heavily exuding wounds if backed by a second absorbent dressing and common with other perforated plastic film dressings.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF WOUNDS/ INJURIES:
Lightly Exuding Wounds: Melolin has a relatively low absorbent capacity and in these situations a single dressing may simply be secured in position with surgical tape.
Heavily Exuding Wounds: Melolin may be used as a wound contact layer beneath a secondary absorbent pad held in position with tape or a bandage/ the frequency with which the dressing should be changed depends entirely upon the nature and condition of the wound.
WARNING/POTENTIAL RISK IF DRESSING NOT USED PROPERLY:
Leg Ulcers: that produce copious quantities of very viscous exudate may become trapped under the dressing leading to maceration and inflammation of the surrounding skin. So please be careful when using the dressing and use it for the suitable wound; otherwise risk of leg ulcers could occur.
