3M™ Medipore™ +Pad Soft Cloth Adhesive Wound Dressing is indicated for use as a primary dressing for: fragile skin; lightly to moderately draining wounds; superficial- and partial-thickness wounds; acute wounds such as cuts, burns, abrasions, and lacerations; chronic wounds; post-surgical dressing, especially on areas where swelling or movement is expected; securing or covering devices; IV and catheter sites (peripheral and central lines). Indicated for use as a secondary dressing over hydrogels, alginates and gauze.
The Medipore +Pad soft cloth adhesive dressing is not intended to replace sutures or other primary wound closure methods. The dressing should be changed if not intact. An intact dressing is one that has been properly applied to achieve and maintain good adhesion, at least around the total periphery of the dressing. For best results, the dressing should be large enough to have a margin which adheres to dry, healthy skin around the wound site. The site should be observed frequently for signs of infection. If infection occurs (which may be signaled by fever, pain, redness, swelling, or an unusual odor or discharge), remove the dressing and take standard precautions.
Hemostasis of the catheter site or wound should be achieved before applying the dressing. The skin should be dry and free of detergent residue to ensure good adhesion. Mechanical skin trauma may result if tension is applied.
