How To Use Transparent Film Dressing? Select a dressing size that properly covers the catheter or wound site. Ensure at least a one-inch margin of dressing adheres to dry, healthy skin. Prepare the catheter insertion site or wound according to the approved protocol. To ensure good adhesion, clip excess hair where the transparency film will be placed. Do not shave the skin because of the potential for micro-abrasions. Make sure skin is free of soaps, detergents, and lotions. Allow all preps and protectants to dry thoroughly before applying the dressing. Wet preps and soap residues can cause irritation if trapped under the dressing. Products with adhesive do not stick nicely to wet or oily surfaces. Do not stretch dressing during application. There can be mechanical trauma to the skin if you apply an adhesive product with tension. Stretching can also cause adhesion failure. The adhesive of transparent dressing is pressure-sensitive. Always apply firm pressure to the dressing from the center towards edges to ensure the best adhesion. To customize a dressing for a specific need, use sterile scissors. Cut the dressing into desired size and shape before removing the printed liner. For best results and ease of application, cut the pieces so that a portion of the frame remains on at least two sides.
