One Solution, Many Uses Across Your Facility.

  • Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI) Protection

    Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI) Protection

    A prevalent but under-recognized complication, MARSI can cause pain, increase the risk of infection and delay healing, all of which can reduce a patient’s quality of life⁵. One study found that 55 treatments for MARSI will be needed for every 100 patients who receive a medical tape application⁶. By using 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film, you can help protect patient skin from possible adhesive damage.

  • IV Site Protection

    IV Site Protection

    Skin damage from adhesives (MARSI) at vascular access sites can be a serious problem. Making 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film part of your vascular care process helps ensure the barrier film is removed at dressing changes instead of a patient’s skin layers.

  • Periwound Protection

    Periwound Protection

    Patients with infected wounds or venous leg ulcers (VLUs) and associated edema are especially at risk for periwound skin damage. The excessive hydration of periwound skin compromises the barrier function, making the epidermis more vulnerable to MARSI, friction and shear. Including 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film in the wound care process helps protect periwound skin from maceration.

  • Peristomal Protection

    Peristomal Protection

    Peristomal skin complications can affect up to 77 percent of patients, and they’re the most common post-operative complication following stoma creation⁷. Making 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film part of the ostomy care process can help protect against peristomal irritation.
