3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing Features

Versatile—one product to satisfy many clinical situations

Tegaderm can be used to protect I.V. sites, enhance wound healing, prevent skin breakdown, and protect closed surgical incisions. Tegaderm Film sizes, shapes and application styles meet a wide variety of needs. Frame style facilitates cutting to desired shape and size for specific applications when needed.

Easy to apply—unique frame delivery system

Application of 3M Tegaderm transparent Film Dressing is intuitive and quick. It is especially convenient for patient self-care. It minimizes application time and saves dressing waste and costs. Picture frame style helps with secure and precise placement of the dressing.

Gentle adhesive—just the right balance in adhesive strength

Tegaderm patches are constructed with a latex-free, hypoallergenic adhesive that is gentle on skin. It holds catheters and some other devices securely in place. The dressing provides good initial adhesion without building to excessive levels over time. The risk of patient discomfort and skin trauma is minimal even for dressings left in place for extended periods.

Breathable—lets oxygen in and moisture vapor out

The breathability of Tegaderm allows moisture vapor and gas exchange. Patients can wear 3M Tegaderm Dressings for a long span of time, with minimal risk of skin irritation.

Waterproof, sterile barrier—impervious to liquids, bacteria and viruses

3M Tegaderm film dressing acts as a barrier to protect the I.V. site or wound from external contaminants including liquids, bacteria and viruses. It is waterproof and patients can take bath, shower or swim with it.

Conformable—flexes with skin for greater patient comfort

3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing conforms to body contours. It stretches to prevent stress on the skin when the patient moves. It protects skin and bony prominences from abrasion and allows the patient to move easily.

Enhanced wound healing—improved outcomes and patient comfort

Natural wound fluid is sealed by Tegaderm to maintain a moist environment. Moist environment heals up the healing process. It prevents scab formation and dehydration of the wound bed. It reduces pain caused by wound dehydration and increases patient comfort.

Transparent—allows wounds and I.V. sites to be easily monitored

3M Transparency Film provides complete visibility of the site during application. It also allows continuous monitoring of the target site without any need to remove the dressing.

Fewer dressing changes—increased patient comfort

Fewer dressing changes mean improved patient comfort. There is a reduction in the risk of skin trauma from repeated adhesive removal. For wound applications, the longer wear time allows the wound to remain undisturbed. It prevents disruption of the healing process.

Clinically proven—efficacious for I.V. site and wound care

Numerous clinical trials by independent researchers support the use of 3M Tegaderm transparent dressings. They are ideal for both I.V. sites and wound care.

How to use 3M Transparent Picture Frame Dressing?


3M Tegaderm Application:

  • Select a 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing size that properly covers the catheter or wound site. Ensure at least a one-inch margin of dressing adheres to dry, healthy skin.
  • Prepare the catheter insertion site or wound according to the approved protocol.
  • To ensure good adhesion, clip excess hair where the 3M transparency film will be placed. Do not shave the skin because of the potential for micro-abrasions.
  • Make sure skin is free of soaps, detergents, and lotions. Allow all preps and protectants to dry thoroughly before applying the dressing. Wet preps and soap residues can cause irritation if trapped under the dressing. Products with adhesive do not stick nicely to wet or oily surfaces.
Application Instructions


How to remove 3M Tegaderm Dressing?


Support the skin when removing 3M Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressing. For removal from I.V. sites, also stabilize the catheter to prevent dislodgment. Use one of the following removal techniques based on the skin conditions of patient and personal preference:
  • Grasp one edge of the dressing and slowly peel it from the skin. It should be done in the direction of hair growth. Instead of pulling the dressing up from the skin, peel it back over itself.
  • Grasp one edge and gently pull the dressing straight out to stretch and release adhesion.
  • Apply an adhesive remover to the adhesive edge while gently peeling the dressing from the skin.
Removal Instructions




  • Do not use the 3M Tegaderm transparent dressing as a replacement for sutures and other primary wound closure methods.
  • Stop any bleeding at the site before applying the dressing.
  • Do not stretch Tegaderm dressing while applying as tension can cause skin trauma.
  • Make sure the skin is clean. It should be free of soap residue and lotion. Allow the skin to dry thoroughly before applying the dressing. This will prevent skin irritation and ensure good adhesion.
  • Only under the care of a healthcare professional, the dressing may be used on an infected site.
  • Tegaderm Transparent Dressings are not recommended to be re-sterilized.
