3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Roll 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.
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 Roll.
3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Roll should not be re-sterilized by gamma, E-beam or steam methods.

3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Roll should be changed when wound drainage extends beyond the wound edges or when the dressing begins to leak. Grasp one edge of the dressing and gently pull straight out to stretch it and release adhesion, carefully holding onto skin with other hand. If necessary, press a small piece of tape onto a corner to start an edge of the dressing. By stretching the dressing, the material expands and releases until the dressing is removed.
