3M™ Tegaderm™ +Pad Dressing is an adhesive, transparent film dressing bonded to a low-adherent absorbent pad.
The dressing is designed to promote normal wound healing processes to occur with less pain and trauma than dry dressings. It has a hypoallergenic non-latex adhesive that provides excellent adhesion, yet is gentle to the skin and easy to remove. The bacterial and viral barrier properties of the backing will protect the wound from external contamination, allowing the patient to shower and carry on with normal life.
Convenient, all-in-one sterile dressing reduces application time
Waterproof bacterial barrier allows patients to shower and protects the site from outside contaminants
Breathable film allows skin to function normally with good exchange of moisture vapour and oxygen
Provides moist wound environment to enhance healing
Unique, non-adherent pad won't stick to the wound, allowing normal wound healing processes to occur with less pain and trauma at dressing removal
Conformable dressing is easier to apply, and stretches with the skin to promote longer wear time
