Kendall Healthcare Transparent Moisture Vapor Permeable Film Dressing
Kendall transparent film dressings consist of a thin polymer film coated with a hypoallergenic adhesive. A simple, effective delivery system allows one-handed application. The dressings are ideal for I.V. sites, donor sites, burns, ulcers and sutures.
- Two-tab delivery system: Allows one-handed aseptic delivery
- Rounded edges: Helps prevent roll up
- Semi-permeable, moisture responsive film: Impermeable to external liquid and micro-organisms
- Improved breathability: Allows moisture and oxygen vapor exchange for longer wear time
- Improved wet adhesion properties: Better adhesion in moist environments
Precautions: The wound surface or catheter site must have ceased active bleeding prior to dressing application. The skin should be dry to assure good adhesion.
