3M Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing is a sterile dressing which consists of a hypoallergenic, hydrocolloid adhesive with an outer clear adhesive cover film impermeable to liquids, bacteria, and viruses. It combines the excellent moisture vapor permeability of transparent dressing with the absorbency and conformability of a unique hydrocolloid adhesive.
Three separate lots (6 replicates for each lot) of 3M Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing and DuoDERM CGF Dressing were tested for absorbency. Results were recorded as grams of solution absorbed per gram of dressing material. Absorbency was measured at 2, 4, 24 and 48 hours. The results from the absorbency testing indicate that Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing had a statistically significant higher mean absorbency than DuoDERM CGF Dressing at every time point (p<0.0001). The following graph displays the mean absorbency across time.
Remove dressing from paper liner by lifting and pulling one of the square end tabs marked â€œ1â€ â€“ exposing the adhesive surface. Avoid touching the adhesive border.
Center the dressing over wound and periwound area, then gently press the adhesive side of the dressing to the periwound area from the center outward.
With pressure, smooth film edges down to ensure good adhesion.
Remove the delivery film by lifting and pulling one of the center tabs marked â€œ2â€ toward one end of the dressing while smoothing down the dressing edges. Remove the other center tab in the same manner.
Gently tear off the square end tabs at perforations in a downward direction and discard. Avoid lifting the film edge while removing the tabs. Then reinforce the entire film edge with firm pressure.
Remove dressing from paper liner, avoiding contact with the hydrocolloid adhesive surface.
Center the dressing over the wound and periwound area.
Gently press the adhesive side of the dressing to the periwound area from the center outward. Care should be taken to avoid unnecessary stretching of the dressing, which can result in mechanical trauma to the wound and surrounding skin.
Note: If necessary, the dressing can be custom cut prior to liner removal and then applied as shown
Slit all four corners of the dressing from edge toward center.
Remove liner, grasping both slit sides of one corner.
Secure to heel or elbow, by pressing from the center toward the two cut sides.
