Skin Protection

Take a proactive approach to skin health

Maintenance of healthy skin around a vascular skin around a vascular device is critical to reduce the risk of infection, maintaining a securement dressing or device, and patient comfort. Although Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injuries ( MARSI ) can be a prevalent and serious complication, they do not need to be an inevitable part of the patient experience. Skin integrity can be maintained even when repeated dressing changes are required. Preparation of the skin and selection of proper adhesives are the first steps to help minimize the risks of MARSI.

    What goes in shouldn't come out. Rolls of tape can be long - more than three kilometers of tape is wasted for every 1,000 patients discharged. Why not have a single use roll of tape that's shorter in length? Aid infection prevention, reduce cross combination, and produce less waste with 3M™ single-patient use of rolls of tape.
