    Help to reduce risks across extraluminal access points

    Use the 3M™ Tegaderm™ CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate I.V. Securement Dressing for short peripheral IV and midline venous catheters, CVCs, dialysis catheters, arterial catheters, epidural catheters and other percutaneous devices.

    A non-CHG version, the 3M™ Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing, is also available.

The 3M™ Tegaderm™ CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate I.V. Securement Dressing integrates a chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) gel pad and is the only transparent dressing cleared and proven to reduce CRBSIs and vascular catheter colonization. It provides immediate and continuous antimicrobial protection for up to 7 days with a highly breathable transparent film that offers a waterproof, sterile barrier against external contaminants*. Both the film and the CHG gel pad remain clear for continuous site observation.

A reinforced stabilization border provides strength needed to stabilize the catheter. A conforming keyhole notch allows catheter lumens to fit better and stay in place, and the conforming edge border uses technology designed to reduce edge-lift. A securement tape strip with a notch promotes consistent application and enhances stabilization, and a documentation tape strip pre-printed for documenting dressing changes provides additional securement.

*In vitro testing shows that the film provides a barrier against viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage.
