Description

Transparent film dressings used to cover and secure I.V. sites to protect at-risk skin, or as a primary or secondary dressing over acute wounds, surgical sites, and chronic wounds. Available in a variety of sizes and shapes.

Tegaderm™ Film has a "frame" and “first aid” delivery system that makes placement quick and easy. Breathable film provides a bacterial and viral barrier{1} to outside contaminants. 3M offers two, unique, different transparent adhesive dressing systems (standard and HP), giving the clinician a choice for patients with sensitive skin or a need for increased holding power in the presence of moisture.

  • Versatility allows you to use one product for many applications. Breathable film allows moisture vapor and oxygen exchange.
  • For I.V. sites, water vapor and oxygen are easily exchanged to permit normal functioning of the skin.
  • Provides a moist environment for enhanced wound healing, as viscous wound exudate is more slowly evaporated through the breathable film.
  • Unique, thin film conforms to the body and flexes with the skin for greater patient comfort.
  • Sterile, waterproof dressing provides a bacterial and viral barrier{1} to outside contaminants and allows the patient to shower.
  • The dressings are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to address both wound and I.V. applications.
  • Tegaderm™ Roll has a preferred delivery system that allows it to be applied with gloved hands. Tegaderm™ Roll provides all the benefits of surgical tape, while providing a waterproof, bacterial, viral {1} barrier.
  • The hydrophilic nature of Tegaderm™ HP (holding power) Film adhesive makes it more adherent and useful in moist conditions.

 

{1} - Laboratory testing has proven Tegaderm™ and Tegaderm™ HP dressings provide a viral barrier (HIV-1 and HBV) while the dressings remain intact without leakage.
