Mode of action
Wound exudate is absorbed through the wound contact layer and transferred into the cellulose pulp core of Mesorb. The highly absorbent core absorbs exudate, and the breathable backing layer allows for moisture vapour transmission. The backing layer is folded over to the edges of the wound contact layer to minimise fluid leakage from the sides.
Areas of use
Mesorb is intended for use in moderate 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. over Mepitel or Melgisorb).
