If inspection or repositioning is necessary, Mepitac can be lifted and re-applied. Mepitac leaves no residues. Mepitac is an ideal fixation solution for patients with fragile and sensitive skin.
Mepitac is suitable for patients requiring repeated application and removal of tape over the same area such as neonates and dialysis patients.
Mepitac is water resistant.Intended use:
Mepitac is designed for fixation of medical devices such as drains, tubes, probes, electrodes, IV cannulae, and dressings. In addition, Mepitac offers gentle skin protection when used under devices such as tubes.
