Tegaderm Transparent Film Frame Dressings are manufactured by 3M and offer patients and caregivers wound observation without removing the dressing. Tegaderm transparent film dressings are designed for protecting skin and wound sites. The frame dressing is constructed with a thin film backing of non-latex, hypoallergenic adhesive on the border of the dressing for adherence around the wound site. This breathable dressing allows oxygen and moisture vapor exchange while keeping contaminants out.
Tegaderm Framed Transparent Film Dressings are waterproof and impermeable to liquids, bacteria, and viruses. These dressings protect the site from outside contamination. Laboratory tests have shown Tegaderm as an effective barrier against HIV-1 and HBV. The Frame Style Dressing allows customization of shape and size to fit any site. Unique sacral shape is designed for challenging and difficult-to-dress areas. This film dressing is a breathable barrier that keeps liquids, bacteria and other contaminates out while allowing the skin to function normally. The dressing serves also as a waterproof, bacterial and viral barrier to outside contaminants, allowing the patient to shower. The breathable film allows moisture vapor and oxygen exchange while providing a moist wound environment for enhanced healing.
Tegaderm Transparent Film Frame Dressings may be used for the following applications: maintain a moist environment to promote healing, secure devices to the skin, treat stage I and II pressure ulcers, wound covering, and protect at-risk skin. Other Transparent Dressings carried by Vitality Medical include the HP Transparent Dressing, Tegaderm Clear Acrylic Dressing, Tegaderm Silver Alginate Dressing, Foam Non-Adhesive Dressing, and the +Pad Dressing.
