Details


3M Medipore H Soft Cloth Surgical Tape provides more gentleness and stronger adhesion for more challenging applications than the standard Medipore Tape. Medipore H is a hypoallergenic, latex free, flexible tape. It is non-woven polyester, soft, and highly conformable. It is excellent in adhering to gentle to skin so it reduces the risk of skin irritation. It’s comfortable, porous and breathable. It stretches to accommodate swelling and movement.

This medical tape is perforated so that you can tear tape off the roll by hand. The tape is easy to handle, with or without gloves. It’s edges resist curling and it’s less likely to stick to itself. It is particularly useful for securing wound dressings, tubing and catheters, and repeated applications where preservation of "at risk" skin is critical. The same soft, latex-free, hypoallergenic, conformable tape as standard Medipore tape, but with increased gentleness and stronger adhesion for more challenging applications. Available in perforated rolls in several sizes.

How Medipore H is different from regular Medipore Tape

Medipore Tapes have the same non woven, polyester backing. The difference is in the adhesive. Medipore H Tape uses an adhesive from the 3M Tegaderm Transparent Dressing family. The tape uses a thin layer of the same adhesive used on 3M Durapore Surgical tape. Although the tape has a higher level of adhesion, it is often more gentle upon repeated taping than Medipore tape.

  • More gentle than Medipore tape.
  • Higher adhesion than Medipore tape.
  • Latex-free and hypoallergenic for sensitive patients.
  • Excellent cross and diagonal stretch to accommodate moderate swelling or movement.
  • Easy-tear perforated rolls for quick tailoring.
  • Water-resistant.

Tape Applications

  • When repeated taping is needed and preservation of "at risk skin" is critical.
  • Securing over areas where skin may stretch (e.g., edema, distention, hematoma formation or movement).

Taping Instructions

Start with clean, dry skin. The tape sticks best to clean, dry surfaces so try to minimize moist conditions as much as possible. Touch the sticky surface of the tape as little as possible. Place the tape without tension onto the skin. Encircling a limb completely with tape may become hazardous to blood flow. The adhesive on the surgical tape is "pressure sensitive" meaning it's designed to adhere best when gentle, but firm, finger or hand pressure is applied rubbing the tape into place.

Your skin has bumps, Even smooth skin has peaks and valleys. Laying a piece of tape on the skin without applying any pressure only provides a superficial adherence at best. Usually, the stickier the tape, the less pressure you should need. Gentle strokes along the tape allows the adhesive to be exposed to more of the skin surface.

Product Summary

Medipore H Surgical Tape is Soft durable tape that is both latex free, hypoallergenic and preferred in hospitals around the world as a trusted surgical tape.

3M™ Medical Tapes Special Taping Situations by 3M™ (3:49 Minutes)


Video Transcription

Speaker 1: Two special taping situations require extra care when compression is needed and when distension is anticipated. There are situations when compression of a side is desired. Unfortunately, some conditions routinely attempt to achieve compression by strapping the tape on skin causing sheer intention. Apply it this way, tapes with non-stretch backings exert continuous tension on the skin, weakening the connections between epidermis and the dermis. This may result in blistering and skin tears. Even tapes that have stretch often have memory and tend to pull back into their original shape. This too exerts tension on the skin. Watch. See it pull together there. When tape has been strapped, it is removed, weakening the epidermis may also result in skin stripping. To help avoid these problems remember that compression is a function of both the tape and the layers of dressing material. You may apply a soft cloth tape such as medipore tape in the usual manner, to stretch or using micro-foam tape. Place the first section of the tape on the skin without tension gently pressing downward. With one hand, secure the tape on the edge of the dressing while slightly stretching the next section of tape over the dressing. Secure the tape on the opposite side of the dressing then place the remaining tape on to the skin without tension. When done properly you will note a narrowing of the tape over the dressing. An alternative is to start the compression on the center of the dressing, stretch the tape to either side but make sure that the tape attached to the skin is applied without tension.

Speaker 2: Another special circumstances when distension, edema and or movement are anticipated. If the skin contour under a tape increases and the tape is unable to accommodate that change because its backing does not stretch, the same problems that applying with tension may occur.

Speaker 1: If distension is anticipated, use a tape that stretches or a self-adherent wrap to secure the dressing or tubing. Foam tape generally stretches in all directions. However, non-woven soft cloth tapes such as medipore tape stretch in the cross direction and on the biased but not lengthwise. The direction of the stretch should be considered when securing the dressing or tubing to an area that is at high risk for distension. Anecdotally, applying soft cloth tape parallel to the incision with the stretch medial and lateral rather than proximal and distal appears to be associated with fewer skin tension injuries than taking perpendicular to the incision. Reassess your tubing and dressing security every shift and as needed. You may need to change tape more frequently if the area is moist, stressed or if distension occurs.

Terrific product
Medipore H has solved a big problem for me! Like regular Medipore it's very easy on my sensitive skin while maintaining excellent adherence even in the shower. Additionally, it will actually stretch quite a bit while putting it on so I can get a good tight dressing over a very irregular and frequently changing ostomy site. This will make it possible for me to dare to wear a swimsuit at the lake this summer! Thank you Medipore!

The 3M cloth tape sticks when it gets wet.
I love the 3M cloth medical tape. It sticks when it gets wet and dries fast and it is still intact. I use it every day on my thumb and I wouldn't know what to do if I ran out of the tape!! It's the best thing since apple pie!!

Great product!
This product is of excellent quality. I have to wear patches that sometimes do not adhere well so I ordered this tape and it works well keeping the patch in place and secure. I recommend it 100%.

Fantastic!
We have had such a hard time finding this product. The nurse at the ostomy clinic gave us our first role. Then we had to buy a roll from the Mayo Store, which cost all most $18.00. Then I happened to do a search on Goggle and found this! Thank God! It is wonderful tape and priced sooo right!

An excellent product.
My surgical incision required additional dressings once I was home. The surgeon's office gave me some Medipore H tape to use. It was the best tape because it was gentle on my skin, yet held very securely. I have since bought some for two friends with cancer who need repeat taping in the same areas of their skin.
