  • Waterproof, sterile barrier: protects the I.V. site or wound from external contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, blood and body fluids – in vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage
  • Breathable film lets oxygen in and moisture vapour out
  • Picture-frame delivery makes placement accurate and easy, minimising potential to stick to gloves or to itself
  • Transparent dressing allows for continuous visibility to the I.V. insertion site
