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 (waterproof), 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.
