      Maintenance of healthy skin around a vascular access device is critical to reducing the risk of infection, maintaining a securement dressing or device, and patient comfort. Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injuries (MARSI) at infusion catheter sites can be a significant problem especially for patients with fragile skin. Skin integrity can be maintained even when repeated dressing changes are required. Preparation of the skin and selection of proper adhesives are the first steps to help minimise the risks of MARSI.1

      Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injury (MARSI)

      MARSI can occur anywhere adhesives are used, often occurring through improper application or removal of medical adhesives, causing undue pain and anxiety, compromising skin integrity, and increasing the risk of infection – all of which negatively impact patient quality of life.3

      Skin damage from adhesives at catheter infusion sites can be a significant problem, particularly for those with fragile skin. 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film is an ideal solution to protect skin around the site due to its unique blend of not one, but two polymers. The additional polymer allows the film to flex with the skin and maintain a continuous protective coating. Cavilon no sting barrier film is compatible with chlorhexadine gluconate and povidone iodine.4 To ensure effectiveness of antimicrobial preps, only barrier films with proven compatibility should be used.
