Our comprehensive range of 3M™ Tegaderm™ I.V. Dressings provides simplicity of I.V. application, security of intravenous fixation and site protection - all supported by clinical evidence. Added features ensure the cannula remains in place thus reducing the risk of phlebitis and patient discomfort.
The innovative Tegaderm CHG dressing integrates the powerful antimicrobial activity of Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) with the high performance of a Tegaderm dressing. It has been specifically developed to reduce skin flora - the most common source of catheter-related blood-stream infection.1
The Tegaderm I.V. advanced securement dressing offers advanced securement with its clever design and comfort adhesive technology. The dressing is reinforced with a soft cloth fabric, designed to reduce edge lift and to seal around the insertion site while bringing all the benefits of the Tegaderm I.V. range.
