3M Critical & Chronic Care Solutions Division announced enhancements to its Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Securement Dressings.

Specific design updates to Tegaderm I.V. Advanced Securement Dressings include improved securement with a larger tape and a keyhole-shaped notch to easily conform around catheter hubs. The product has a stabilization border and conformable edges, and the larger securement tape allows for more accurate placement. There also is a new waterproof film on the tape strip.

The dressings support infection control goals, and can potentially reduce the number of dressing changes, the company said.
