MediClear™ PreOp is an antimicrobial self-adherent silicone film drape for pre-operative skin, with chlorhexidine and silver.
• Simple application is designed to support existing pre-operative protocol
• Harnesses the synergistic effect of silver and chlorhexidine, killing 99.99% of the microorganisms commonly associated with SSI, including Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria
• Achieves 4-log reduction when applied 30 minutes prior to procedure and 3-log reduction in 10 minutes
• Soft silicone adhesive is gentle on the skin while creating an isolated barrier at the incision site to protect and maintain an optimal antimicrobial environment prior to surgery
MediClear™ PreOp is indicated for use as a pre-operative film barrier to isolate the incision site and provide continuous antimicrobial activity to reduce the risk of contamination prior to procedure.
MediClear™ PreOp is intended to be used on intact skin and for external use only.
MediClear™ PreOp should be replaced if it becomes loose, soiled or compromised in any way. Follow "application" instructions if reapplication is required. MediClear™ PreOp is a single-use product.

Surgical Site/Skin Preparation
Prepare the surgical site with an antiseptic agent (i.e., isopropyl alcohol). Hair at and around the surgical site may be removed with electric clippers where necessary. Ensure the site is completely dry prior to applying MediClear™ PreOp.
Open the sterile pouch and remove MediClear™ PreOp. Hold the flap of the top colored liner and peel off. Place the exposed adhesive on the skin and smooth the film over the skin. Hold the flap of the remaining colored liner and peel off and smooth the film over the skin toward the edges. To remove frame: start from the pre-cut line, peel off in a circular motion and smooth the film towards the edges to ensure good adhesion.
MediClear™ PreOp should be removed immediately prior to surgery by a clinician in the operating room under sterile conditions as part of preparing the patient for the procedure. Remove MediClear™ PreOp by gently lifting one edge and slowly peeling away. Prepare the surgical site as per facility protocol.
