  • Promotes moisture evaporation and improved securement while providing continuous site observation
  • Provides a waterproof, sterile barrier to external contaminants including liquids, bacteria and viruses. In vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage
  • Picture-frame delivery makes placement accurate and easy, minimizing potential to stick to gloves or to itself
  • Breathable film allows moisture vapor and oxygen exchange.
  • Transparency allows monitoring of I.V. sites without the need to remove the dressing.
  • Recommend use of waterproof cover over dressing and IV site when showering.
  • Picture-frame style allows one-handed application, less waste, and added versatility.
