Transparent dressing allows for wound monitoring without changing the dressing. Clear design takes the guesswork out of application over the woundNovel acrylic polymer pad technology designed to handle low to moderate wound drainage. No dressing breakdown in the wound. Low friction surface minimizes potential for friction and shear. Allows for gentle removal from skin. Barrier to external contaminants, body fluids, bacteria and viruses. In vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from viruses 27nm in diameter or larger while the dressings remain intact without leakage. Hypoallergenic and latex-free – Laboratory testing has proven Tegaderm dressings provide a viral barrier (HIV-1 and HBV) while the dressings remain intact without leakage.
