IV3000* - 1 Hand Ported Moisture Responsive Catheter Dressing

IV3000 - 1 Hand Ported is a moisture responsive transparent film dressing specifically designed to meet the needs of catheter fixation and to keep the catheter site dry.  Independent clinical experts have proven IV3000 to offer safe, secure and cost effective catheter fixation and believe it to be ‘a technological advance for IV site care’.  A 1 Hand delivery system is now available for use with ported catheters and provides quick and easy aseptic application.

Benefits

 

 

 

Reduces risk of infection by preventing moisture accumulation
The patented Reactic* film in IV3000 has a unique molecular structure which is significantly more permeable to water vapour than ordinary films.  This prevents the accumulation of moisture underneath the dressing so reducing bacterial growth and the risk of catheter-related infection.

Minimises unscheduled dressing changes
The higher permeability of IV3000 keeps the skin drier so improving dressing adherence and reducing the number of unscheduled dressing changes.

Greater patient comfort
IV3000 is kind to the patient’s skin.  Its’ low allergy adhesive and highly permeable Reactic film help prevent skin maceration or irritation and result in improved patient comfort.

Excellent catheter stability
The highly conformable IV3000 film allows the patient to move freely and yet will remain firmly adhered around the catheter hub so ensuring excellent fixation.

Convenient visual inspection
IV3000 is transparent and so allows regular inspection of the catheter insertion site for signs of infection or phlebitis without the need for dressing removal.

Waterproof barrier
IV3000 is waterproof and allows the patient to bathe or shower with the dressing in situ.

Easy application and removal
The 1 Hand delivery system allows the dressing to be positioned accurately over the bulky ported catheter providing quick, easy, aseptic, application.  It also allows the dressing to be applied with 1 Hand if required leaving the other hand free to stabilise the catheter or patient. 
The unique grid pattern adhesive makes dressing removal easier than with ordinary films as it reduces the risk of skin trauma and leaves less adhesive residue on the patient’s skin.

Indications

 

 

 

The Ported dressings are suitable for ported peripheral catheters.

Contraindications / Precautions

 

 

 

IV3000 should be used on IV sites only.  If a film dressing is required for open wounds such as pressure sores, burns or donor sites, OpSite* Flexigrid* Moisture Vapour Permeable Adhesive Film Dressing -  should be used.  Use on prepared dry skin only.
