Transparent film dressings designed to secure the catheter in challenging I.V. applications. Many with notches and borders reinforced with a soft cloth fabric, designed to reduce edge lift and to seal around the insertion site.

Tegaderm™ I.V. Film has a "frame" delivery system. Sterile soft cloth tape strips are also provided with many dressings for anchoring hubs, lumens and tubing. Dressings are waterproof and latex-free.
