Abstract

Transparent polyurethane film is recommended for catheter site insertion dressing by the American guidelines for the prevention of infections associated with intravascular catheters. It has been proven to offer the advantages of excellent adhesion, firm support of the catheter, good tolerability, ease of application and fewer replacements per catheter lifetime. The last two features save nursing time and result in healthcare cost savings.
