More On Centurion Sorbaview 2000 Window Dressing

Intended Use

  • SorbaView 2000 is classified as a TSM (transparent semi-permeable membrane) dressing and can be used in the treatment of central venous catheter (CVC), peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC), and peripheral intravenous site management; dialysis procedures; implanted port access; epidural catheter securement; and to cover and protect superficial wounds, skin tears, and abrasions. 
  • SorbaView 2000 can be worn for long periods of time (up to seven days) because it continuously prevents the build up of moisture from under the dressing.

Design Rationale

  • The anatomy and physiology of human skin, as the breathable protective barrier that allows the body to survive in a contaminant-filled environment, is what inspired the combination of different material layers in the design of SorbaView 2000. 
  • Skin is composed of multiple layers. The thin outer layer, or epidermis, is composed of cells which are continuously eroding while new replacement cells are multiplying to provide a protective barrier. Beneath this is the dermis, which is comprised mostly of connective fibrous tissues which create the anchoring adhesive to underlying tissues and provide for proper control of moisture and temperature. 
  • SorbaView 2000’s innovative multi-layer construction utilizes a breathable outermost layer, a protective and strong lower layer which controls moisture, and a conforming adhesive layer to anchor it all securely

Advanced Materials & Methods

  • The select medical grade adhesive used in SorbaView 2000 has a unique combination of aggressive tack coupled with moderate peel strength, which is particularly advantageous in medical applications. This adhesive performs well in a wide range of ambient seasonal humidity and temperature environments.
  • The adhesive coating on the film is applied in a unique pattern, allowing the dressing to be more breathable, highly moisture vapor permeable and to hold securely for up to seven days. The high moisture permeability of the polyurethane film used in SorbaView 2000 creates an occlusive barrier to micro-sized contaminants and liquids, while allowing for the free exchange of gases enabling the skin to breathe normally. 
  • Both the film and the non-woven fabric have an “omni-directional” stretch characteristic much like human skin. The fabric moves with the skin in any direction and conforms securely to the skin surface or intravenous access device with a breathable seal. It allows the skin and the clear polyurethane film barrier to be joined with a minimum amount of adhesive and remain intact and comfortably worn to lock out contaminants. The patient benefits from this gentle, protective, netlike layer while wearing the dressing and also during its removal, which is thus made less traumatic. In addition, the added physical strength of the fabric on top of the film helps SorbaView 2000 to remain intact.
  • The non-adherent pad under the film is lint free and highly absorbent. This is designed to help keep the catheter exit site dry by wicking away exudate or moisture from under the film center, into the pad, and displacing it to the exterior region of the dressing’s nonwoven fabric border. The pad also adds a very small amount of stiffness to the dressing to keep the dressing from crumpling and sticking to itself, thus making it very easy to apply and remove. 
  • The dressing is designed to have a layered quality like that of skin, and be able to “transpire” moisture from the lower inside barrier film layer to the outer surface area of the fabric. The exposed fabric can and will get wet by showering and precaution should be taken to avoid saturating the dressing while bathing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines recommend changing dressings should they become damp, loosened or soiled. However, with the protective film layer below the fabric, the site will always be sealed. Liquids are shut out, but gases are allowed to move freely as they do in normal function of the skin. This dressing’s unique design is patented.
