IV3000* Transparent Adhesive Film Dressing is a moisture-responsive transparent film dressing specifically designed to meet the needs of catheter fixation. Available in three ranges: 1-hand, standard and frame delivery.
• Provides physical separation between catheter site and external environments
• Film acts as a barrier to bacteria, including MRSA, to reduce risk of infection
• Unique grid pattern adhesive eases application and reduces pain on removal
• Low allergy adhesive and highly permeable film improve patient comfort
• Prevents moisture accumulation to reduce risk of infection
• Excellent catheter stability allows patient to move freely
• Transparency allows for convenient visual inspection
• Leaves less adhesive residue on skin
IV3000* Transparent Adhesive Film Dressing is indicated for use on peripheral and central venous catheter fixation.
IV3000* should be used on IV sites only.
Use on prepared dry skin only.
Do not stack dressings or allow dressings to overlap. Periodically monitor the dressing and catheter site to confirm secure attachment and continued proper infusion, especially after bathing, showering or if the dressing and catheter site becomes wet. If the dressing comes off, evaluate to ensure proper catheter placement, and then apply a new dressing. As with all adhesive products, apply and remove carefully from sensitive or fragile skin.

Clean and thoroughly dry application area. Remove approximately half of the protector paper and center the dressing over the insertion site. Smooth the dressing down on to the patient's skin, working from the catheter outwards and remove the remaining protector paper. Be careful not to apply the dressing under tension.
The protector paper may be removed from the orange tape handles and the entire handle adhered to the patient's skin.
Alternatively, a portion of the tape handles can be torn off with the protector paper still in place. This can then be removed and the tape handles used to help secure the catheter hub or tubing. They may also be used for documentation.
Remove dressing by loosening the orange handles and stretching the dressing parallel to the patient's skin while stabilizing the patient's skin and catheter with the other hand. Alternatively, use an alcohol wipe to break the adhesive seal. If the skin is particularly fragile, then warm soap and water may be used to break the adhesive bond and to ease the dressing off.
