3M Tegaderm CHG Dressings are proven to be as effective as, or better than, BIOPATCH Protective Disk plus adhesive cover dressing at reducing skin flora and preventing regrowth.1 Tegaderm CHG Dressings are proven to maintain significantly lower counts than BIOPATCH after seven days on healthy adult subjects.
Simplifies I.V. Site Care
Tegaderm CHG Dressings are proven to significantly reduce the number of dressing changes and restarts which may reduce nursing time, materials cost, and the opportunity for exposure.3 The intuitive design lets you "skip the disk." The CHG gel pad is integrated into the film so it can't be dropped, forgotten or applied incorrectly--ensuring efficiency and consistency of care.
You get CHG protection plus an I.V. securement cover dressing in a single dressing, simplifying product selection, application and inventory control. Tegaderm CHG Dressings accommodate a majority of catheters and can be safely worn for up to seven days-or for the length of your facility protocol.
Increases Consistent and Correct Application
In clinical practice, the BIOPATCH disk is often laid on top of the catheter at the insertion site, greatly diminishing its efficacy.
Preferred by Clinicians
