3M Tegaderm™ CHG Chlorhexidine Gluconate IV Securement Dressing is used to cover and protect catheter sites and to secure devices to skin. It is available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Tegaderm™ CHG dressing consists of a transparent adhesive dressing and an integrated gel pad containing 2% w/w Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG), a well-known antiseptic agent with broad spectrum antimicrobial and antifungal activity. The transparent film provides an effective barrier against external contamination including fluids (Water-proof), bacteria, viruses and yeast, and protects the IV site. In vitro testing (time kill and zone of inhibition) demonstrates that the Tegaderm™ CHG gel pad in the dressing has an antimicrobial effect against a variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, and yeast. The gel pad absorbs fluid. In vitro testing shows that the transparent film of the Tegaderm™ CHG dressing provides a viral barrier from viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage. Tegaderm™ CHG dressing is transparent, allowing continual site observation, and is breathable, allowing good moisture vapor exchange.
