3M Medipore H - Tips For Trouble Free Taping
 

What to buy with Medipore Tape

How to use Medipore H Surgical Tape?

  1. Unroll slightly beyond the desired length
  2. Slightly bend the rolled-out segment of tape to identify the perforation lines which are spaced every 2 inches along the entire roll
  3. Grasp the top edge of the tape closest to the perforation line, and quickly "tear" the tape apart

Prior Application Instructions for 3M Medipore Tape:

  • Tape should be applied without tension to clean, dry skin
  • A clipper may be used to remove hair, if necessary
  • To protect at-risk skin, 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film may be applied and when thoroughly dry, tape may be applied over it
  • In general, do not encircle a limb completely with tape
  • If distention is anticipated, use a tape that stretches or a self-adherent wrap to secure the dressing or tubing

How to apply 3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Surgical Tape?

  1. General taping:
    1. Apply the Medipore surgical tape without tension, gently but firmly stroking the surface to maximize adhesion
    2. Tape should extend at least one-half inch beyond the dressing
    3. Soft Cloth Surgical Tape should not be pulled or stretched when applied
    4. If swelling does occur, loosen and re-fasten or replace tape to relieve the tension
  2. When compression is needed:
    1. Place first section of tape without tension onto skin on one side of the dressing, gently pressing downward
    2. With one hand, secure tape on one edge of the dressing while slightly stretching next section of tape over the dressing
    3. Secure Medipore surgical tape on opposite edge of the dressing
    4. Press remaining tape onto skin without tension
    5. Compression should come from the multiple layers of dressing material, not from excessive tension in the tape
    6. Skin distention under tape may result in blistering and should be relieved as soon as possible
  3. When distention is anticipated:
    1. 3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Surgical Tape has more stretch in the cross-direction and on the bias
    2. The direction of the stretch should be considered when securing a dressing or tubing to an area that is at high risk for distention, edema, hematoma formation, or movement
    3. Anecdotally, applying soft cloth tape parallel to the incision appears to be associated with fewer skin tension injuries than taping perpendicular to the incision

How to remove 3M Medipore H Tape?

Proper tape removal is critical in reducing the skin trauma:

  1. Loosen edges of tape. If necessary, press a small piece of tape onto a corner to start an edge of the tape
  2. Stabilize the skin with one finger
  3. Remove tape “low and slow” in direction of hair growth, keeping it close to skin surface and pull back over itself
  4. Removing tape at an angle will pull the epidermis increasing risk of mechanical trauma. As 3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Tape is removed, continue supporting newly exposed skin.

What to consider while choosing A Tape for Tube Or Dressing Secural?

  1. Degree of importance of tube or dressing:
    • The more critical the tubing/dressing, the higher the adhesion required
    • Strength of adhesion and backing may be more important than gentleness
    • Gentle tapes with higher adhesion may be used without increasing the risk of skin trauma if properly applied and removed
    • Some tapes are less gentle but are used for high initial adhesion, high long-term adhesion and high strength of backing
  2. Surface characteristics:
    • Heavy tubings require higher adhesion
    • Bulky dressings require high conformability and may require greater adhesion
    • Individual results may vary
    • Skin:
      • Dry, Damp, Diaphoretic
      • Wet: secretions, leaking tubes
      • Weeping, Macerated, Oily
    • Dressing: Material, Weight, Conformability
    • Device:
      • Contour, Weight
      • Material: metal, plastic, other
    • Tubing:
      • Diameter: small, large
      • Texture: smooth, ribbed, other
      • Material: PVC, silicone, other
      • Weight, Length, Potential for drag or pull, Other support (e.g., sutures, tunneling)

  3. Activity level of patient: The more active the patient, the higher the adhesion required
  4. Potential for skin surface distention or movement: The risk of skin damage may be reduced by using tapes that stretch with skin distention or movement
  5. Anticipated wear time: Tape adhesion generally builds over time. Breathable tapes are used for longer term wear
  6. History and current medical conditions: History and current medical conditions should be studied e.g., allergies/ sensitivities to medical adhesives, medications, medical conditions

3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Medical Tape FAQ's

How can I increase tape adhesion?

The key concepts to maximize adhesion are:

  • Start with clean, dry skin
  • Touch the sticky surface of the tape as little as possible
  • Apply sufficient pressure to the tape to get the adhesive into the nooks and crannies of the skin
  • Cover adequate surface area so that the tape can support the tubing or dressing
  • Obtain full contact between the tape and the skin or tubing so that moisture cannot slip between the two and loosen the tape

Why do we have an expiration date for tapes? What happens when a tape “expires?”

The expiration date allows us to ensure the performance of the tape products within a specified time period. In general, we do not expect changes in performance shortly after the expiration date, but 3M ensures performance within that time frame. The recommended shelf life for Medipore tape and the Medipore pre-cut dressing covers is 3 years under normal storage conditions. The Medipore +Pad dressings shelf life is 3 years or sooner if sterility is broken.

Is there a special way to apply Medipore tape?

The direction of the stretch should be considered when securing a dressing or tubing to an area that is at high risk for distention, edema, hematoma formation, or movement. Anecdotally, applying soft cloth tape parallel to the incision appears to be associated with fewer skin injuries than taping perpendicular to the incision. When distention or movement under the tape is not anticipated, the direction of the stretch of Medipore tape is not known to make a difference.

Is Medipore tape sterile? Can it be sterilized?

Rolls of 3M Medical Tapes are sold clean, not sterile. Medipore tape may be sterilized by ethylene oxide but NOT by steam (autoclave). Although 3M provides guidelines, it is up to the facility to ensure sterility. At this time, Sterrad processing with hydrogen peroxide is not recommended for Medipore tape.

Is 3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Surgical Tape hypoallergenic?

Yes, Medipore Tape is hypoallergenic and feels comfortable on the skin.

What is the difference between Medipore tape and Medipore H tape?

The major difference between both the tape is that Medipore H tape has a higher level of adhesion and is often more gentle upon repeated taping than Medipore tape.

Is 3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Surgical Tape latex-free?

Yes, Medipore H Surgical Tape is Latex-free.
