Skin & Wound Conditions

  • Compression therapy is considered the standard of care for treating lower extremity edema and venous leg ulceration. Reducing the pain and discomfort of venous leg ulcers—and managing the chronic edema that can lead to their development—doesn’t have to be complicated for you or your patients.

    3M advanced the science of compression therapy by creating materials engineered to deliver Intelligent Compression Dynamics to provide comfortable, therapeutic compression for the management of venous leg ulcers.

  • Medical Adhesive—Related Skin Injury (MARSI) refers to the red irritated skin that can occur when medical adhesives are removed. It occurs across all care settings and age groups, often due to improper selection, application or removal of medical adhesives. This causes unnecessary pain and compromises skin integrity.

    With an impressive history in developing adhesive solutions, 3M understands how adhesives interact with skin. We use that knowledge to develop products to address patient needs in today’s care setting—and reduce the risk of MARSI.

  • MASD is a term that describes several types of damage that occur when skin is exposed to excessive moisture and/or irritants.

    3M™ Cavilon™ Skin Care Solutions—including our innovative 3M™ Cavilon™ Advanced Skin Protectant—are key to a skin care regimen that helps protect patients/residents from factors that can lead to skin damage.

  • A pressure ulcer/injury is localized damage to the skin and underlying soft tissue, usually over a bony prominence or related to a medical device. Moisture, friction and shear are accepted as risk factors for pressure ulcer/injury development.

    3M offers a comprehensive portfolio of innovative products designed to help you maintain an environment that promotes healing and protects at-risk patients when used as part of a comprehensive pressure ulcer/injury prevention program.
