Reliable Securement Without Sacrificing Patient Comfort
Reliable securement of Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs) and Central Venous Catheters (CVCs) is critical in avoiding the clinical, emotional and financial costs of complications. Traditional securement devices can be difficult and painful to apply and remove. Sutures can be uncomfortable for patients, and needlestick injuries (NSIs) can lead to significant burden on facilities and clinicians.
Building on over 30 years of experience collaborating with clinicians to simplify and improve I.V. site care, 3M designed securement systems that provide reliable securement without sacrificing the comfort patients deserve.

Designed with Clinicians and Patients In Mind
The 3M PICC/CVC Securement Systems were specifically designed to provide:
- Secure adhesion
- Gentle removal
- Antimicrobial protection
- Site visibility
- Long wear time
- Easy application and removal
- Patient comfort and mobility
Gentle on Skin for Improved Comfort
The device removes cleanly, eliminating the need to scrub with alcohol. Removal of other stabilization devices can cause adhesive trauma, stripping skin cells along with the device. Significantly fewer skin cells are removed when removing the 3M PICC/CVC Securement Device than the Bard StatLock Tricot stabilization device, proving that it is more gentle to skin.
Easy to Apply and Remove
The 3M PICC/CVC Securement Systems were designed for easier application and removal. An evaluation comparing the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System to the Bard StatLock Stabilization Device for Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs), showed the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System to:
- Be easier to apply and remove
- Be easier to remove without catheter movement
- Leave minimal to no adhesive residue on skin upon removal
- Be repositionable upon initial application without losing adhesion
Reduces the Risks of Suture-Related Needlestick Injuries
The 3M PICC/CVC Securement Systems are an ideal alternative to sutures, helping to eliminate the unnecessary financial, physical and emotional costs of suture-related needlestick injuries (NSIs). Health care workers in hospitals experience approximately 92,400 suturerelated sharps or NSIs each year. NSIs expose workers to bloodborne pathogens including HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and others, and can pose significant burdens, including:
- Trauma-related psychiatric disorders
- Loss of employee time
- Cost of staff to investigate the injury
- Expense of laboratory testing
- Cost of treatment for infected staff
- Cost of replacing staff
The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions 2011 Guidelines for the Prevention of Intravascular Catheter-Related Infections recommend the use of a sutureless securement device to reduce the risk of infection for intravascular catheters.
Proven to Provide Reliable PICC/CVC Securement
Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs)
The 3M PICC/CVC Securement Systems were designed to minimize catheter migration or dislodgement complications. In a pre-market evaluation, clinicians rated the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System as providing better overall PICC securement than the Bard StatLock Stabilization Device and transparent film dressing. The 3M PICC/CVC Securement System was also rated to be easier to apply and remove and gentler to skin than StatLock. In fact, 85% of the clinicians indicated they would be willing to replace their existing PICC securement system with the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System.
In a simulated clinical situation, the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System could withstand the sudden, high pull force of dropping an attached 2.5 pound weight 100% of the time, while the StatLock PICC Plus with a Tegaderm I.V. Film Dressing with Border (1655) and a Competitive Securement Dressing failed every time.
3M PICC/CVC Securement System could withstand a sudden, high pull force of an attached 2.5 pound weight being dropped 24 out of 24 times.
Central Venous Catheters (CVCs)
In a pre-market evaluation, clinicians rated the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System as providing better overall securement than sutures and a dressing or a securement device and dressing. The 3M PICC/CVC Securement System was also rated higher in preventing migration, ease of application and gentleness to skin. In fact, 90% of the clinicians indicated they would be willing to replace their existing CVC securement system with the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System.
In vivo testing comparing the mean pull force required to dislodge an inserted CVC catheter with various securement devices, showed the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System could withstand significantly higher pull force than a Competitive Securement Dressing or sutures.
3M PICC/CVC Securement Systems require higher pull force than sutures and dressing or Competitive Securement Dressing, and more than 1.5 times more than sutures (3-0 silk) plus Tegaderm I.V. Film Dressing with Border (1655).
Application & Removal Guide
- Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs)
- Short-term Central Venous Catheters (CVCs)
Securement System Selection
Choose the system with a dressing large enough to provide at least a one-inch margin of adherence on dry, healthy skin around the catheter site.
- Prepare the site according to your facilitys protocol.
- Clipping hair at the site may improve dressing adhesion. Shaving is not recommended.
- 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film can be used with the PICC/CVC dressing. Apply Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film evenly to the skin. Avoid the area immediately surrounding the insertion site.
- Allow all preps and protectants to dry completely before applying the securement device and Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Dressing to ensure good adhesion and prevent skin irritation.
- Follow universal precautions as indicated by established protocols for infection prevention.
- Observe site daily for signs of infection or other complications. Infection may be signaled by fever, pain, redness, swelling, or unusual odor or discharge.
- If infection is suspected, remove the Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Dressing, inspect the catheter site directly, and determine appropriate medical intervention.
- Inspect the 3M PICC/CVC Securement System daily and change the system as necessary, in accordance with facility protocol.
- Securement System changes should occur at least every 7 days and may be needed more frequently with highly exudative sites or if integrity of the device or dressing are compromised.
Reducing Infection Risks
- At each securement system change, pay careful attention to disinfecting the skin around and under the catheter.
- Carefully disinfect injection ports before access.
- Inspect the site frequently for early signs of complications. Transparent dressings allow easy site assessment without removing the dressing.
- Change the securement system according to your facilitys protocol, or when it becomes wet, loosened or soiled. Edge lift of a transparent dressing is not necessarily failure, unless there is a channel from the edge of the dressing to the insertion site of the I.V. catheter.
- Use maximum barrier precautions for central venous catheter (CVC) insertion and sterile technique for site care.
- Protect against skin irritation. Compromised skin near the catheter insertion site increases the risk of complications.
- No dressing can substitute for your professional site care.
- Stop any bleeding at the site before applying the securement system.
- Do not stretch the dressing during application as tension can cause skin trauma.
- Make sure the skin is clean and free of soap residue and lotion. Allow skin to dry thoroughly before applying the securement system to prevent skin irritation and to ensure good adhesion.
- The securement system may be used on an infected site, only when under the care of a health care professional.
- Antimicrobial ointments containing polyethylene glycols may compromise the strength of the securement system.
- Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Dressings should not be re-sterilized by gamma, E-beam or steam methods.

Yes, the Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing included in the system was specifically designed to enhance securement of the device, ensuring the best possible experience and outcomes.
What kind of intravascular catheters will this securement system secure and fit properly?
The 3M PICC/CVC Securement System will secure single, double and triple lumen PICCs and short-term CVCs up to and including 12 French. The securement device does not fit well on catheters without a "winged" hub, like most arterial catheters or those with a luer-lock type connection.
What do the CDC guidelines recommend for PICC or short-term CVC securement?
Catheter stabilization is recognized as an intervention to decrease the risk for phlebitis and catheter migration and dislodgement, and may be advantageous in preventing CRBSIs. Pathogenesis of CRBSI occurs via migration of skin flora through the percutaneous entry site. Sutureless securement devices avoid disruption around the catheter entry site and may decrease the degree of bacterial colonization (Yamamoto, et al, 2002). Using a sutureless securement device also mitigates the risk of sharps injury to the health care provider from inadvertent needle stick injury.
What is the definition of a short-term CVC?
A short-term CVC is classified by the FDA in 21 CFR, Section 880.5200 Intravascular catheter: "An intravascular catheter is a device that consists of a slender tube and any necessary connecting fittings that is inserted into the patient's vascular system for short-term use (less than 30 days) to sample blood, monitor blood pressure, or administer fluids intravenouslyThe device may be constructed of metal, rubber, plastic, or a combination of these materials."
What is the definition of a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)?
A CVC with placement access via a peripheral vein.
When should the dressing or device be changed?
The Securement System should be changed at least every seven days and may need to be changed more frequently with highly exudative sites or if integrity of the dressing is compromised. The securement device should be changed with each dressing change. Change the dressing when it becomes damp, loosened, or visibly soiled (CDC, 2011).
How is this securement system classified by the FDA?
The non-CHG dressing is classified by FDA in 21 CFR, Section 878.4020 Occlusive wound dressing as a Class I device which is exempt from Premarket Notification (510k). The securement device is classified by FDA in 21 CFR, Section 880.5210 Intravascular catheter securement device as a Class I device which is exempt from Premarket Notification (510k).
Is the silicone adhesive the same used in 3M Kind Removal Silicone Tape?
This silicone adhesive provides stronger adhesion for securing critical tubing than the silicone adhesive found in 3MKind Removal Silicone Tape, while still removing gently.
