Rigorous adherence to the principles of asepsis is the foundation of surgical site infection prevention. It is critical to minimise a patient's exposure to bacterial contamination from the environment. The range of products for use in the peri-operative environment can help reduce the risk of infections. The range includes surgical drapes and gowns, custom procedure trays and surgical masks.
The 3M portfolio of products for wound care and I.V. site management combines the effective infection prevention properties of Tegaderm film with a number of specialist dressings - thus creating a family of dressings for a variety of uses, each with the reassurance of an effective barrier to liquids, bacteria and virus particles.
