What to buy with Transparent Film


How to use 3M Medical Wound Dressing?

How to apply 3M Tegaderm Film Dressing?

  1. Select a 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing size that properly covers the catheter or wound site. Ensure at least a one-inch margin of dressing adheres to dry, healthy skin.
  2. Prepare the catheter insertion site or wound according to the approved protocol.
  3. To ensure good adhesion, clip excess hair where the 3M transparency film will be placed. Do not shave the skin because of the potential for micro-abrasions.
  4. Make sure skin is free of soaps, detergents, and lotions. Allow all preps and protectants to dry thoroughly before applying the dressing. Wet preps and soap residues can cause irritation if trapped under the dressing. Products with adhesive do not stick nicely to wet or oily surfaces.
  5. Do not stretch Tegaderm dressing during application. There can be mechanical trauma to the skin if you apply an adhesive product with tension. Stretching can also cause adhesion failure.
  6. The adhesive of Tegaderm picture frame transparent dressing is pressure-sensitive. Always apply firm pressure to the dressing from the center towards the edges to ensure the best adhesion.
  7. To customize a dressing for a specific need, use sterile scissors. Cut the dressing into the desired size and shape before removing the printed liner. For best results and ease of application, cut the pieces so that a portion of the frame remains on at least two sides.
    Application Instructions

    How to remove 3M Tegaderm Film Waterproof?

    Support the skin when removing 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing. For removal from I.V. sites, also stabilize the catheter to prevent dislodgment. Use one of the following removal techniques based on the skin conditions of the patient and your own personal preference:
    • Grasp one edge of the dressing and slowly peel it from the skin. It should be done in the direction of hair growth. Instead of pulling the dressing up from the skin, peel it back over itself.
    • Grasp one edge and gently pull the dressing straight out to stretch and release adhesion.
    • Apply an adhesive remover to the adhesive edge while gently peeling the dressing from the skin.
    • To lift a dressing edge, put a piece of surgical tape to one dressing corner and rub it firmly. To help you slowly peel back the dressing use the tape as a tab.
    Removal Instructions

    Precautions:
    • Do not use the 3M Tegaderm transparent dressing as a replacement for sutures and other primary wound closure methods
    • Stop any bleeding at the site before applying the dressing
    • Do not stretch Tegaderm dressing while applying as tension can cause skin trauma
    • Make sure the skin is clean. It should be free of soap residue and lotion. Allow the skin to dry thoroughly before applying the dressing. This will prevent skin irritation and ensure good adhesion.
    • Antimicrobial ointments containing polyethylene glycols can affect the strength of the 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing
    • Only under the care of a healthcare professional, the dressing may be used on an infected site
    • Tegaderm Transparent Dressings are not recommended to be re-sterilized

    • Do not stretch the Tegaderm™ dressing during application. Applying an adhesive product with tension can produce mechanical trauma to the skin. Stretching can also cause adhesion failure.
    • The adhesive of Tegaderm™ dressing is pressure-sensitive. To ensure best adhesion, always apply firm pressure to the dressing from the center out to the edges.
    • To tailor a dressing for a special application, use sterile scissors to cut the dressing into desired shapes or sizes before removing the printed liner. For best results and ease of application, cut the pieces so that a portion of the frame remains on at least two sides.
