3M 1626 Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing Frame Style

3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing Frame Style is a sterile, vapour permeable transparent film dressing. 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressings can be used to cover and protect catheter sites and wounds, to maintain a moist environment for wound healing, and to secure devices to the skin.

Features and Benefits of 3M 1626 Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing Frame Style

  • Waterproof, sterile barrier: protects the I.V. site or wound from external contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, blood and body fluids in vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage
  • Breathable film lets oxygen in and moisture vapour out
  • Picture-frame delivery makes placement accurate and easy, minimising potential to stick to gloves or to itself
  • Transparent dressing allows for continuous visibility to the I.V. insertion site
  • Dressing flexes with skin for greater patient comfort
  • May be worn up to 7 days
  • Radiologically transparent. Tegaderm products can be safely left on patients skin during radiotherapy treatments. Dressing does not act as bolus material, with or without 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film (CNSBF)
  • Can be used to maintain a moist wound environment to facilitate autolytic debridement
  • Helps to prevent skin breakdown caused by friction

Application Hints for 3M 1626 Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing Frame Style

  • Select a dressing size that will adequately cover the catheter and insertion site or wound. Ensure at least a one inch margin of dressing adheres to healthy, dry skin.
  • Prepare the catheter insertion site or wound according to your institutions approved protocol.
  • To ensure good adhesion, clip excess hair where the dressing will be placed. Do not shave the skin because of the potential for microabrasions.
  • 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. Additionally, adhesive products do not adhere well to wet or oily surfaces.
  • 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.
Removal Hints
Support the skin when removing Tegaderm dressing. For removal from I.V. sites, also stabilize the catheter to prevent dislodgment. Use one of the following removal techniques based on your patients skin condition and your own personal preference:
  • Gently grasp one edge and slowly peel the dressing from the skin in the direction of hair growth. Try to peel the dressing back over itself, rather than pulling it up from the skin.
  • Grasp one edge of the dressing and gently pull it straight out to stretch and release adhesion.
  • Apply an adhesive remover suitable for use on skin to the adhesive edge while gently peeling from the skin.
To aid in lifting a dressing edge, secure a piece of surgical tape to one corner and rub firmly. Use the tape as a tab to help you slowly peel back the dressing.
