Tegaderm I.V Advanced
The 3M™ Tegaderm™ I.V. Advanced Securement Dressings offers advanced securement with its clever design, new comfort adhesive technology and the tried and trusted Tegaderm film. Its stabilisation border, deep force-shifting notch and sterile tape strips provide a strong seal around catheters and other devices such as tubings. The deep notch shifts the pull force from the dressing's edges to its centre, then across the dressing. It enlists the entire dressing in securing the catheter thus decreasing the risk of dislodgements and fall outs. The new comfort adhesive technology offers strength in application but is gentle on removal.
Innovative Comfort Adhesive Technology
Two innovative adhesives provide excellent hold, even under moist skin conditions. The firmer, patterned adhesive secures and protects the catheter and allows efficient evaporation of the moisture from the skin. A complementary "full surface" adhesive along the stabilisation border provides further security. Both adhesives remain gentle to the skin and release comfortably upon removal.
