Nexcare™ Tegaderm™ Waterproof Transparent Dressing is the #1 hospital brand in transparent dressings. The unique properties of Nexcare Tegaderm Waterproof Transparent Dressings make it flexible with your body and breathable for greater comfort while protecting abrasions, cuts, minor burns, blisters and post-surgical incisions. It is waterproof, staying on in the bath or shower, and seals out water, dirt and germs to help prevent infection. Tegaderm Dressing can be worn for up to 7 days, making it ideal for securing IV catheters or other tubing, and for post-surgical dressings. With all that, it is still gentle on the skin, protecting even reddened or fragile skin. Tegaderm Waterproof Transparent Dressings are also hypoallergenic and made from latex free materials.
Prior to applying, clean and dry wound and surrounding skin thoroughly.
1. Peel away the printed liner from the paper-framed dressing, exposing the adhesive surface.
2. Apply dressing over wound. DO NOT STRETCH the dressing when applying.
3. Remove the paper frame from the dressing while smoothing down the edges.
Directions for Removal:
Gently lift edge of dressing, slowly peel from skin in direction of hair growth. Change dressing if it begins to leak, is no longer sticking to skin, or there are holes or tears in dressing.
Additional Directions for I.V. Use:
1. Viewing the catheter site through the dressing, center dressing around the puncture site. Secure the film around the catheter and press the dressing firmly into place.
2. Press down on the dressing edges as you remove the paper frame. Apply slight pressure over the entire dressing to help it stick.
3. Inspect catheter site daily without removing dressing. Call your physician or health care professional if you notice any itching, burning, rash, or signs of infection: fever, pain, redness, or swelling.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Will72 Does not stay stuck! Please read my review on the 'waterproof' tape, catalog # 731. These will not stay stuck to my skin. They start to shed after a few minutes. I have tried different ways of cleaning and putting them on. If I start to sweat, they will just fall off! October 15, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Nonya works well I used this product and it does exactly as it says on the package. Which is refreshing for a change. As a consumer, I know I cannot always trust what I read on a package. This product kept my injury dry! September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MJ7402 works well! As a nurse I used this product and it worked well for wound healing. August 31, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5Â by wayne87 product description overstates quality This product states that it will last up to 7 days, this statement is way over shooting the products ability. Not one of the 4 strips in the pack I purchase lasted more than a single day. I shaved the around the area and even tried prepping the surrounding area with alcohol with no avail. With that being said, I work a strenuous job and sweat on a daily basis. If you are an active person there are better options... August 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Michele40 Love it! I'm using a 4x4 Tegaderm bandage to cover a healing burn right above my knee. It's an awkward spot to keep covered with non-stick gauze pads and cloth tape. Tegaderm is very comfortable, easy to use, waterproof, and stays put. Also, I like that I can see how the burn is doing without having to peel off layers of bandages. May 30, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SherryH Insulin pump infusion sites We use Tegaderm to secure and protect my son's infusion sets for his insulin pump. The Tegaderm protects the site and holds the infusion set on so much better than the adhesive on the set. We couldn't pump without Tegaderm! February 8, 2013
