IV3000 is a moisture responsive, transparent film dressing, specifically designed to meet the needs of catheter fixation. IV3000 is made from a unique Reactic* film, which is breathable and significantly more permeable to water vapour than ordinary film. The film is waterproof and impermeable to liquids, bacteria and viruses and while the dressing remains intact it protects the IV site from outside contamination. These properties result in drier catheter sites, reduced skin maceration and lower skin colonisation, thus reducing the risk of catheter related infection. IV3000 can be applied easily and aseptically, and due to the pattern spread adhesive, pain on removal is reduced. IV3000 is spread with a non-irritating, non-sensitising adhesive.
