The Merit Medical StayFIX 680ME Catheter Fixation Device is a securement device for the stationed ability of the drainage catheter tube that is used in suctioning fluids from the body.
The 5 to 12 French Medium Size StayFIX Fixation Device is made with medical grade adhesives to provide the best-secured attachment without the risk of un-sticking from the skin which can in turn cause more unpleasant issues and create complications from the incision the fixation device is holding. The device itself is easy to apply, once the area has been prepped with a skin wipe such as the Povidone-Iodine Prep Pads; you can proceed to attach the fixation device to hold securely the tubing coming out of the patient. Removal is easy and practically painless, if any adhesive does remain, you can use the AllKare Adhesive Remover Wipes to remove residue.
The hydrocolloid material of the Stayfix Dressing Device is an absorbent material to help combat leakage and support it until the device is replaced - keeping a clean surface, reducing possibilities of infections. In order to achieve comfortability, the fixation device needs to be flexible and this has been achieved with the help of the contouring device that moves and adjusts to you as you move or bend as to not create a restriction of movement and possible detachment.
A beneficial feature is a water-resistant material that can even be used in the shower. A lot of fixation devices offer the bare minimum, you may be using the device a little longer than initially intended, for this, a water-resistant material and adhesive offer to complete the job for you when taking some time to clean and refresh.
