The first I.V. dressing with the paediatric patient in mind.
The Tegaderm™ I.V. 1610 Paediatric Dressing is 5 x 5.7cm in size making it more suitable for paediatric use than many larger conventional products. It contains 3M`s recognised Tegaderm transparent film to protect the site and allow observation of the catheter entry point. In addition, the product includes soft cloth reinforcement and Medipore tape strips for added security. Friendly pictures of teddy bears (Tegabears) on the surface of the dressing are designed to allay a child`s fears encouraging them to keep the dressing in place.
