PrevahexCHX antimicrobial dressings incorporate groundbreaking, advanced
technology utilizing pure chlorhexidine (CHX) to provide rapid and broad-spectrum
protection at wound and catheter sites. The dressing is manufactured through a
revolutionary non-thermal, PCA-free process that ensures the rapid onset of action
of pure chlorhexidine, as well as the breathability and visibility of the wound site.
PrevahexCHX is the only antimicrobial dressing cleared by the FDA with pure
chlorhexidine coverage throughout the transparent areas of the dressing.
Chlorhexidine has long been utilized as a medical antimicrobial agent, with its
pure form being most effective. Other chlorhexidine formulations contain additives
such as gluconic acid and acetic acid that can potentially irritate the skin upon
application. PrevavexCHX dressings are free of these additives, ensuring a
comfortable patient and clinician experience.
3M Durapore Advanced Surgical Tape
While recent adhesive
advances have incrementally
improved critical tube
Durapore Advanced Tape’s design addresses three
key performance needs to help clinicians safely secure
• Exceptional Adhesion Performance: Durapore
Advanced Tape maintains adhesion on oily or
diaphoretic skin. The tape is also unique in that it is
not made with natural rubber latex, yet provides better
adhesion characteristics than latex-containing tapes.
• Minimal Edge Lift: Tape edge lift can lead to
adhesion failure, increasing the risk of extubation or
dislodgement. In several studies, Durapore Advanced
Tape demonstrated minimal edge lift or adhesive
weakening after 72 hours of wear.
• Adhesion to Skin, Tubes, Devices, and Itself:
Successful critical tube securement requires adhesives
that can stick to multiple surface textures. While some
medical tapes can fail in one or more of these categories,
Durapore Advanced Tape adheres in all of them.
Laboratory testing showed Durapore Advanced Tape
outperformed competitive tapes in three key securement
areas: adhesion to tubing, adhesion to skin after moisture
occurs, and edge lift. In a study of pull force needed to
dislodge a tube from diaphoretic/moist skin, Durapore
Advanced Tape required 44 percent more force on
average than other tapes.
