3M 1658 - Tegaderm CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate I.V. Securement Dressing 4X4.75, 100 PER/CS
THE DIFFERENCE IS CLEAR
Only Tegaderm CHG Dressings combine the most critical elements of I.V. site care into a single, easy-to-use product.
- Full site visibility.
- Antimicrobial CHG protection.
- Catheter securement.
1. Antimicrobial Protection: Integrated CHG gel pad provides immediate and continuous protection.
2. Securement: Reinforced border and notch provides catheter securement.
3. Site Visibility: Transparent film and gel pad allow continuous site observation.
4. Breathability: Promotes moisture evaporation and enhances securement.
5. Immediate and Continuous Antimicrobial Protection : The soft gel pad diffuses CHG around the insertion site, including under the catheter hub. The CHG is immediately active and does not require moisture to activate, providing continuous protection for up to seven days, even on dry skin. The CHG gel pad can absorb perspiration, exudate and blood without compromising antimicrobial activity or site visibility.

Enables Continuous Site Visibility
The gel pad and film remain transparent, so you always have full visibility of the insertion site to monitor for early signs of infection. The CDC recommends the use of transparent film dressings for I.V. site care because they: reliably secure the device, permit continuous visual inspection of the catheter site...and require less frequent changes than do standard gauze and tape dressings; the use of these dressings saves personnel time.
