Tegaderm Film Dressing with Non-Adherent Pads 50CT
50 CT, .4 lbs. Item # 548805

This Island dressing is a sterile, waterproof, viral and bacterial barrier which consists of a non-adherent absorbent pad bonded to a larger thin film transparent dressing (In vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from virus 27nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage).

  • 1 in. x 1.57 in. pad
  • Convenient, all-in-one sterile dressing reduces application time
  • Waterproof barrier which allows patients to bathe or shower without removing dressing
  • Unique, non-adherent pad won't stick to the wound, allowing normal wound healing processes to occur with less pain and trauma
  • Breathable film allows skin to function normally with good exchange of moisture vapor and oxygen
  • Conformable dressing is easy to apply and stretches with the skin to promote longer wear time
  • Suggested applications: Post-operative wounds. Acute wounds such as abrasions and lacerations. Light-to-moderately-draining chronic wounds. Superficial and partial-thickness burns. I.V. catheter sites (peripheral and central lines). To secure or cover devices. Secondary dressing applications. Over hydrogels, alginates and gauze
  • Condition: I.V. related, pressure ulcer, wound care
  • IV Related condition type: Arterial catheter, CVC dialysis CVC PICC, CVC short-term, CVC tunneled
  • Wound care condition type: Abrasions, closed intact surgical wound, donor sites, laceration, neuropathic ulcers, open surgical wounds, skin tear, superficial partial thickness burns
  • Precautions: Stop any bleeding at the site before applying the dressing. Do not stretch the dressing during application as tension can cause skin trauma. Make sure the skin is dry and free of soap residue and lotion to prevent skin irritation and to ensure good adhesion. The dressing may be used on an infected site only when under the care of a health care professional
  • Latex-free

This item is FSA (Flexible Spending Account) eligible.

Directions

Choose a dressing size large enough to provide a margin that adheres to dry, healthy skin around the catheter or wound site. Site preparation: Prepare the site according to institution protocol. Clipping of hair at the site may improve adhesion. Shaving is not recommended. Allow all prep liquids to completely dry before applying the dressing to prevent skin irritation and ensure good adhesion. Open package and remove sterile dressing. Peel the paper liner from the paper-framed dressing, exposing the adhesive surface. Position the framed window over the wound site or catheter insertion site and apply dressing. Press the dressing into place. Remove the paper frame from the dressing while smoothing down the dressing edges. Seal securely around catheter or wound site. Firmly smooth adhesive border to the skin.

Warnings

Do not use the dressing as a replacement for sutures and other primary wound closure methods. Store in a cool, dry place.
