3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Dressing can be used to cover and protect catheter sites and wounds, to maintain a moist environment for wound healing or to facilitate autolytic debridement, as a secondary dressing, as a protective cover over at-risk skin, to secure devices to the skin, to cover first- and second-degree burns, and as a protective eye covering. Do not use the dressing as a replacement for sutures and other primary wound closure methods.

Warnings and Precautions

Stop any bleeding at the site before applying the dressing.
Do not stretch the dressing during application as tension can cause skin trauma.
Make sure the skin is clean, free of soap residue and lotion and allowed to dry thoroughly before applying the dressing to prevent skin irritation and to ensure good adhesion.
The dressing may be used on an infected site only when under the care of a health care professional.
Antimicrobial ointments containing polyethylene glycol may compromise the strength of the 3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Dressing.
3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Dressing should not be re-sterilized by gamma, E-beam, or steam methods.
