Reduces risk of infection by preventing moisture accumulation
The patented Reactic* film in IV3000 has a unique molecular structure which is significantly more permeable to water vapour than ordinary films. This prevents the accumulation of moisture underneath the dressing so reducing bacterial growth and the risk of catheter-related infection.
Minimises unscheduled dressing changes
The higher permeability of IV3000 keeps the skin drier so improving dressing adherence and reducing the number of unscheduled dressing changes.
Greater patient comfort
IV3000 is kind to the patient's skin. Its low allergy adhesive and highly permeable Reactic film help prevent skin maceration or irritation and result in improved patient comfort.
Excellent catheter stability
The highly conformable IV3000 film allows the patient to move freely and yet will remain firmly adhered around the catheter hub so ensuring excellent fixation.
Convenient visual inspection
IV3000 is transparent and so allows regular inspection of the catheter insertion site for signs of infection or phlebitis without the need for dressing removal.
IV3000 is waterproof and allows the patient to bathe or shower with the dressing in situ.
