For over 30 years, Tegaderm™ dressings have been synonymous with quality and performance. When the most trusted name in transparent film dressings was expanded to advanced wound care and surgical site dressings, users knew the Tegaderm™ brand meant easy-to-use products that provide excellent value, support best practices and help improve patient outcomes.

Sterile tape strips are provided to assist with improved catheter securement
Breathable film, allows oxygen in and moisture out
Transparent dressings allow easy monitoring of I.V. sites without the need to remove the dressing
