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.


V3000 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. 

One of the most important considerations for IV practitioners is to choose a dressing that protects the catheter site from infection. Guidelines suggest dressings that permit the escape of moisture may be associated with lower rates of skin colonisation helping to prevent catheter related infection.


With a Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) which is up to eight times higher than that of other transparent dressings, IV3000 helps to ensure a lower risk of bacterial colonisation and a dry site leading to more secure fixation
