DRESSING

3M offers a full line of dressings which provide easy selection of size, shape and function. Dressing choices include absorbent acrylic, alginate, burn sheeting, composite, hydrocolloid, hydrogel, foam, transparent film and wound contact material.

Absorbent Acrylic

Absorbent Clear Acrylic Dressing
Absorbent Clear Acrylic Dressing
Enables clinicians to monitor pressure ulcers, skin tears and other moderately exuding wounds without changing the dressing.

 

 

 

3M™ Tegaderm™ Absorbent Clear Acrylic Dressing has advanced 3M technology where wound exudate moves through perforations in the bottom layer of Tegaderm™ Transparent Film, which is coated with a moist-skin adhesive. Through the process of diffusion, wound exudate is absorbed into the patented, clear, acrylic polymer pad. Moisture vapor is released through the top, breathable, waterproof layer of Tegaderm™ Film, which also provides a barrier to outside contaminants. Easy to center on the wound and apply. Gentle removal from the skin. Promotes autolytic debridement while allowing visualization. Barrier to outside contaminants such as fluid, bacteria and viruses.{1} Low potential for skin maceration. Thin profile, conformable. Low friction surface. Washable. Hypoallergenic and latex-free.

{1} - Laboratory testing has proven Tegaderm dressings provide a viral barrier (HIV-1 and HBV) while the dressings remain intact without leakage.
Benefits

Easy monitoring of the wound, exudates and periwound skin
May eliminate unnecessary dressing changes
Barrier to outside contaminants such as fluid, bacteria and viruses{1}
Eliminates hydrocolloid-related odor
No dressing breakdown in the wound
Easy to center to the wound and apply
Gentle removal from skin
Hypoallergenic and latex-free
