New Evidence Regarding Surgical Site Infections Associated with C-Sections

Mölnlycke plans to present new evidence to benefit caregivers and patients at this year’s AORN, which will be held at Morial Convention Center, in New Orleans, March 24-28. Focused on reduction of Surgical Site Infections (SSI) on C-Sections, two new studies support an up to 10-fold reduction in SSIs through utilization of Mepilex Border Post-Op antimicrobial dressings as part of surgical protocol. Mölnlycke will make this evidence and related materials available in their exhibit at Booth 1623.

Mölnlycke will also showcase Mepilex Border Sacrum and Heel and Z-Flo Fluidized positioners for Pressure Ulcer Prevention, in addition to its line up of prevention to post-acute solutions.

Mölnlycke truly believes that together we can make a difference. Everyone involved – the patient, health care provider, the care facility and our health care system overall – benefits when we are able to work together to reduce infection rates,” says Al Concemi, vice president surgical marketing.
