Warnings and Precautions

3M™ Medipore™ +Pad Soft Cloth Adhesive Wound Dressing is not intended to replace sutures or other primary wound closure methods.
The dressing should be changed if adhesion is compromised or exudate penetrates through the soft cloth backing. 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.
The skin should be dry and free of detergent residue to ensure good adhesion.
Do not stretch the dressing during application as tension can cause skin damage.
When applied in areas of high mobility, or if considerable swelling is anticipated, tension-related skin injuries may occur.
Do not re-sterilize.

Mode of Use/Application

Note: follow facility guidelines for infection control. Follow your "gauze and tape" protocol for use.

In accordance with standard hospital protocol, prepare the site for catheter insertion or wound dressing. To ensure best dressing adhesion, clipping of excess hair at the site may be necessary. Shaving is not recommended. Allow prep liquids to dry completely before dressing application. Select appropriate size dressing to ensure that the absorbent pad is larger than the wound. Open package and remove sterile dressing. Peel the paper liner from the dressing, exposing the adhesive surface. Position the dressing over the wound or the catheter insertion site and apply the dressing.  To avoid tension, flex joints before application. Smooth down the dressing edges.  Seal securely around catheter or wound site.  Firmly smooth the adhesive border to the skin. Check tension on the dressing regularly, particularly if the wound is subject to swelling.

Removal & Change Frequency

Change the dressing if exudate penetrates through the soft cloth backing. To remove the dressing, gently grasp the edge and slowly peel the dressing from the skin in the direction of hair growth.
