The 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressings are extremely flexible, transparent and self-adhering wound dressings that are designed to act as a barrier to outer contaminants like liquids, bacteria, and viruses. These dressings are small patches with a picture-frame design that promote an accurate placement over wounds. These dressings are extremely flexible and accommodate skin movements without losing their adhesion. The adhesive on the 3M Tegaderm Dressing is extremely gentle and non-irritating to the skin. The dressings are thin and transparent that allows for continuous visual inspection of wound healing or the IV insertion site.
The 3M Tegaderm Transparent Dressing is useful for a number of acute and chronic wound applications such as stage one or two pressure ulcers, superficial partial thickness burns etc. The dressings are also beneficial for post tattoo application and removal. These dressings are also suitable to be applied on the skin while covering and protecting IV catheter sites, feeding tubes and other similar devices.
These rectangular dressings are water-proof and restrict outer fluids like perspiration, blood etc. from penetrating into the wounds. These breathable dressings allow the free circulation of air and help maintain a moist wound environment for enhanced healing. The moist wound environment also supports autolytic debridement that supports the repair of dead and damaged tissues. The dressings are sterilized and ready to be used right out of the pack.
