More On Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing

  • Dressing Selection:
    • Evaluate the wound and select the dressing size to allow 2.5 cm (1 inch) of the hydrocolloid adhesive to extend beyond the wound edge.

  • Site Preparation:
    Before Using the Dressing:
    • Clip excess hair for patient comfort. 
    • Clean the skin and the wound thoroughly, according to your facility or agency protocol. 
    • Allow the skin to dry before applying the dressing.
    • If the patient’s skin is easily damaged or if drainage is expected to go beyond the wound edge, 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film may be applied.

  • Application Instructions for Oval Dressing:
    • Remove dressing from paper liner by lifting and pulling one of the square end tabs marked “1” – 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 “2” 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.

  • Application Instructions for Square Dressing:
    • 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.

  • Application Instructions for Sacral Design Dressing:
    • Flex dressing to open edges of the four paper frame splits. This will allow easier removal once dressing has been placed over the wound. 
    • Before removing the printed liner, fold the dressing in half and “crease” it down the middle. This will greatly assist one handed application into the gluteal cleft. 
    • Hold the tabs together to prevent gloves from sticking to the dressing. Remove the printed liner on one side of the dressing until adhesive is exposed. Continue to remove the printed liner from the other side of the dressing in the same manner. 
    • While still holding both tabs, position the dressing over the wound, tilting the dressing toward the anal area. Spread the buttocks to get better placement. Secure the dressing above the anus first. This will minimize the chances of wrinkling (tenting). 
    • After securing dressing in the cleft, gently press adhesive sides of the dressing down from the center outward. This helps to avoid wrinkling and provides a smooth neat application. Avoid stretching the dressing or the skin. 
    • Remove the dressing frame, starting at the top and working downward. Reinforce and smooth the film border from the center outward. Continue down one side ending at the notch. Repeat process from other side until all sections of the frame is removed.

  • Removal Instructions:
    • Carefully lift the dressing edges (film border) while pressing down on the skin. Continue lifting the edges until all are free from the skin surface. 
    • If there is difficulty lifting the film border, apply tape to the edge of the dressing and use the tape to lift. 
    • Remove the dressing slowly, folding it over itself. Pull carefully in the direction of hair growth.
