Benefits

Provides secure hold

  • Reinforced border, deep notch, and tape strips work together to enlist the entire dressing in securement
  • Innovative adhesives hold strongly, manage moisture, and release easily
  • Designed to maintain securement by preventing edge lift, flexing with patient movement, and managing moisture

Excellent value

  • Can potentially reduce the number of dressing changes and restarts
  • May be worn for up to 7 days on a PIV catheter**
  • Provides up to 7 days of wear time for CVC’s

Easy to apply and remove

  • Designed to promote consistent application
  • Frame delivery makes placement accurate and easy
  • Supports infection prevention goals
  • A waterproof film coating on all pieces provides a barrier to external contaminants including liquids, bacteria and viruses*
  • Allows continuous monitoring

Features

  • Flexible and conformable
  • Reduces edge lift to maintain securement
  • Waterproof film coating

Deep notch*

Deep notch

  • Fits easily and conforms around hubs and lumens
  • Designed to discourage edge lift
  • Designed to reduce the risk of catheter manipulation and dislodgement

Securement Tape Strips

Securement Tape Strips

  • Enhance securement while promoting consistent application
  • Waterproof film coating
  • Pre-printed documentation label for dressing changes

Picture-frame delivery

Picture-frame delivery

  • Minimizes potential to stick to gloves or to itself
  • One-handed application

* No notch on the 1688 dressing.

** 3M internal data on file.

*** In vitro testing shows that the transparent film of 3M™ Tegaderm™ I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing provides a viral barrier for viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage.

Clinical Evidence

Out-performs against leading transparent film dressings

Compared to standard transparent film dressing plus tape strips, 3M™ Tegaderm™ I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing 1683 plus tape strips withstood nearly twice the pull force when securing a P.I.V.

Learn more about IV Advanced’s pull force

When securing a straight PIV catheter, 3M™ Tegaderm™ I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing 1683 plus tape strips withstood three times the pull force after 48 hours of the leading flat film dressing plus tape strip (see Figure 1).* Innovative adhesives provide excellent hold for the length of your facility’s protocol. The patterned adhesive secures and protects the catheter and channels moisture away from the skin to help reduce the risk of maceration. A second, complementary adhesive around the reinforced border further enhances securement.

Mean force removal compared to tape and standard transparent film dressing.

Can provide significant cost savings

Tegaderm™ I.V. Advanced Securement Dressings can help facilities manage I.V. site care costs by potentially reducing the number of dressing changes and catheter restarts.
The transparent film allows for continuous monitoring of the insertion site. The dressing may be worn for the life of a PIV catheter and provides up to 7 days of wear time for CVC’s.** A waterproof film coating on all pieces resists soiling and provides a barrier to external contaminants including liquids, bacteria and viruses.***
Over the course of a year, facilities can realize significant savings using Tegaderm™ I.V. Advanced Securement Dressings in place of tape plus transparent film dressing as part of their standard of care.

Assumptions

  • Only peripheral I.V.s were considered for this analysis.
  • Inserting a PIV takes an average of 29 minutes.
  • Tape plus transparent film dressing savings to 1683 is by reducing restarts.

Hold end of dressing with adhesive side facing skin. Bend slightly with thumb.

Application Step 4

Position dressing with bottom of notch placed directly below luer lock hub. Pinch in place around catheter.

Application Step 5

Apply firm pressure over film to establish adhesion to hub and skin.

Application Step 6

Wrap ends of notch beneath catheter hub and apply firm pressure.

Application Step 7

Slowly peel back frame while simultaneously pressing down dressing edges.

Application Step 8

Remove precut sterile tape strips from paper frame. Apply each tape strip as shown above. Recommended application (a–d):

  1. Apply strips parallel and adjacent to each other over the luer hub and continue straight out across dressing.
  2. Tape strips are applied over the hub, not under.
  3. Pinch tape around luer hub and apply firm but gentle pressure over all surfaces to maximize adhesion.
  4. Apply tape label.
Removal
Removal Step 1

Carefully remove tape strips from dressing. Then gently grasp soft cloth on both sides of notch and separate.

Smooth dressing from center toward edges using firm pressure to enhance adhesion.

Application Step 6

Remove the large precut notched sterile tape. Apply tape across the stabilization border of the dressing over the catheter hub. The notch opening should face away from the catheter insertion site, or be parallel with the dressing notch. Press all surfaces firmly but gently to enhance adhesion. Label dressing according to your facility's protocol. Secure catheter lumens or extensions.

Removal
Removal Step 1

Remove tape strip over dressing.

Removal Step 2

Gently grasp the edge of the dressing and slowly peel dressing back over itself toward insertion site or in direction of hair growth. Keep removal "slow and low." Support catheter hub and surrounding skin with other hand.
