Tegaderm Film consists of a thin film backing with a non-latex, hypoallergenic adhesive. It is breathable, allowing good oxygen and moisture vapor exchange. It is waterproof and impermeable to liquids, bacteria, and viruses. An intact dressing protects the site from outside contamination. Can be used to cover and protect catheter sites and wounds, to maintain a moist environment for wound healing or to facilitate autolytic debridement, as a secondary dressing, as a protective cover over at-risk skin, to secure devices to the skin, to cover first- and second-degree burns, and as a protective eye covering. Not for use as a replacement for sutures and other primary wound-closure methods.
