3M Tegaderm High Performance Foam Adhesive Dressing is a highly absorbent and breathable wound dressing that provides total fluid management by a combination of fast wicking, high absorbency and breathability. The oval and square dressings are constructed of a conformable absorbent, polyurethane foam pad, an additional absorbent nonwoven layer and a border of transparent film with moist skin adhesive technology.
Clip excess hair for patient comfort.
Cleanse wound and surrounding skin according to facility policy.
Note: If periwound skin is fragile or exposure to wound exudate is likely, apply a barrier film. Allow the barrier film to dry before dressing application.
Assess wound. Select appropriate size dressing to ensure that the foam pad is larger than the wound area.
Remove dressing from package.
Hold the dressing by one of the side tabs and remove the printed liner, exposing the adhesive border.
While stabilizing the leg or surrounding tissue with one hand, position the dressing over the wound.
With one hand, press or “cup” the dressing onto the skin. Continue to press and conform the dressing and adhesive border onto the skin.
Beginning at the center of the dressing, grasp one section of the paper carrier and pull toward the outer edge of the dressing. Repeat this for each of the remaining carrier sections until all paper carrier is removed
Firmly press and conform the adhesive border to the skin
Carefully lift the dressing edges from the skin. If there is difficulty lifting the dressing, apply tape to the edge of the dressing and use the tape to lift.
Continue lifting the edges until all are free from the skin surface. Remove the dressing.
Observe the dressing frequently. As the dressing absorbs, exudate will wick to the top of the dressing and discoloration may be noticeable. When the exudate spreads to the edges of the dressing or the dressing begins to leak, a dressing change is indicated
3M Tegaderm High Performance Foam Adhesive Dressing may be used as an absorbent cover dressing over wound fillers such as alginates or gauze packing
Dressing change frequency will depend on the type of wound,volume of exudate and clinical situation. Change at least every seven days or as indicated per treatment protocol
You may cut the dressing as needed to fit the size of the wound or accommodate wound contours. Seal the cut edge with 3M Tegaderm Transparent Dressing to provide waterproof barrier
