3M™ Tegaderm™ Clear Acrylic Sacral Dressing Application and Removal
Now, I will go on to demonstrate to you the application of the Sacral Design of Tegaderm Absorbent Clear Acrylic Dressing. You will want to prepare your wound and protect your peri-wound tissue for your facility protocol.
Position your patient appropriately. You will then fold your dressing in half, liner side out, and crease lightly in the center. Hold both taps and remove your paper liner. Carefully spread the buttocks, position your dressing over the wound tilting towards the anal notch. Secure your dressing notch in the anal area first and press into place. Press addressing in place from the center outward. Remove your paper frame supporting your adhesive edge to avoid edge lift.
Smooth in place from the center outward to ensure a good seal. Removal of this dressing follows the same steps as previously demonstrated for the removal of the Tegaderm Absorbent Oval-Shaped Dressing.
