Tegaderm™ Film has a "frame" and “first aid” delivery system that makes placement quick and easy.

Benefits

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