The 3M Tegaderm CHG IV Securement Dressing is a transparent, antimicrobial dressing used to cover and protect catheter sites and to secure devices to skin. It consists of a transparent adhesive dressing and an integrated gel pad containing the highly effective antiseptic agent, chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG). Tegaderm CHG demonstrated excellent long-term, surface antimicrobial activity against diverse microbial species with superior prevention of flora regrowth on prepped skin of healthy subjects. This unique dressing combines the powerful antimicrobial protection of CHG with the simplicity of Tegaderm film dressings, making it very easy to use.
