Opsite IV3000 1 Hand Moisture Responsive Catheter Dressing

Description

The Opsite IV3000 1 Hand Moisture Responsive Catheter Dressing is a transparent film dressing that is specifically designed to meet the needs of catheter fixation and to keep the catheter site dry. It is a technological advance for IV site care, offering safe, secure, and cost-effective catheter fixation.

Features

– Moisture responsive: The unique molecular structure of the REACTIC film in IV3000 allows for significantly more permeability to water vapor than ordinary films. This prevents the accumulation of moisture underneath the dressing, reducing bacterial growth and the risk of catheter-related infection.
– Minimizes unscheduled dressing changes: The higher permeability of IV3000 keeps the skin drier, improving dressing adherence and reducing the number of unscheduled dressing changes.
– Skin-friendly: IV3000 is kind to the patient’s skin. Its low allergy adhesive and highly permeable Raetic film help prevent skin maceration or irritation, resulting in improved patient comfort.
– Excellent fixation: The highly conformable IV3000 film allows the patient to move freely while remaining firmly adhered around the catheter hub, ensuring excellent fixation.
