3M™ Tegaderm™ CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate I.V. Port Dressing is an antimicrobial dressing designed for patients with implanted venous ports, including oncology and hematology patients.
Now you can give your oncology patients the antimicrobial venous port protection they need and the comfort they deserve.
Use the 3M™ Tegaderm™ CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate I.V. Port Dressing 1665 for single- or double-implanted venous ports and non-coring Huber needles used in the care of oncology and hematology patients.
A non-CHG version, the 3M™ Tegaderm I.V. Transparent Film Dressing with Adhesive-Free Window, 1668, is also available.
3M™ Tegaderm™ CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate I.V. Port Dressing contains an antimicrobial (CHG) gel pad plus an IV port dressing. The transparent CHG gel pad provides site visibility and immediate and continuous antimicrobial activity – reducing skin flora and preventing its re-growth – for up to 7 days without additional moisture required to activate. The adhesive border provides gentle, yet strong adherence to skin, and the pre-cut slit in the gel pad is designed to conform around a variety of percutaneous devices. The gel pad remains transparent with light amounts of drainage.
The IV port dressing has an adhesive-free window to reduce the risk of the dressing sticking to the needle during removal. The conforming edge border with pattern-coated adhesive is designed to reduce edge lift and support longer wear time. A securement tape strip with a notch seals the dressing border and anchors tubing, and a documentation tape strip preprinted for documenting dressing changes provides additional securement.
The CHG gel pad and cover dressing are also sold separately.
*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.
