The Tegaderm™ CHG Dressing consists of a transparent adhesive dressing and an integrated gel pad containing chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG), a well-known antiseptic agent. Tegaderm™ CHG Dressing is used to cover and protect catheter sites and to secure devices to skin. It also provides continuous antimicrobial activity at the IV site.
*Proven to be as effective as, or better at, reducing skin flora on healthy volunteers for up to 10 days than BIOPATCH1.
*Proven to be more effective at preventing re-growth on healthy volunteers at 7 days than BIOPATCH1.
*Transparent, allowing continuous visualization of insertion site.
*Integrated design of dressing and CHG gel pad reduces application steps and minimizes potential for application error.
*As easy-to-use and easy-to-train as a Tegaderm™ dressing.
*Large surface area to provide coverage of catheter and suture sites.
*Larger coverage area than BIOPATCH1 allows for coverage of sutures as well as insertion site.
*Non-tunneled central venous catheters (CVC), inserted in the internal jugular, subclavian, or femoral vein
