    • Delivers broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection against the microorganisms most commonly associated with causing CRBSI (1)
    • A recently published large randomized trial demonstrated that chlorhexidine-gel impregnated dressings decreased the catheter related infection rate in ICU patients with intravascular catheters (2)
    • Transparent gel pad and dressing allow continuous visualisation of the insertion site
    • Integrated design of dressing and CHG gel pad reduces application steps and minimises potential for application error
    • As easy to use as standard Tegaderm dressings
    • The ability of the gel pad to absorb fluids reduces the frequency of dressing changes (3)
    • Sterile,waterproof,breathable film that is impermeable to liquids, bacteria and viruses*
    • Framed delivery system allows for one handed application and prevents dressing sticking to itself
    • Notched and reinforced with a cloth border to provide a better seal and reduced edge lift around catheters and other devices
    • Sterile tape strips are provided to assist with improved catheter securement
    • Date labels to assist clinicians with documentation of date of insertion

    Suggested Applications

    • For use over catheter sites and devices:
    • Central venous catheters (CVC)
    • - Internal jugular (IJ) vein
    • - Femoral vein
    • - Subclavian vein
    • Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs)
    • Tunneled CVCs
    • Arterial catheters
    • Dialysis catheters
    • Any percutaneous device
