3M has introduced 3M Tegaderm Antimicrobial I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing and 3M Tegaderm Antimicrobial Transparent Dressing to enhance its offerings for PIV maintenance solutions. The new 3M antimicrobial PIV dressings integrate CHG transparently throughout the adhesive to suppress normal skin flora regrowth on prepped skin for up to 7 days, better than non-antimicrobial dressings. The dressing’s transparency provides clinicians continuous site visibility, which enables early identification of complications at the insertion site. Tegaderm Antimicrobial I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing is designed to minimize catheter movement and dislodgement.
