IV Catheter Adhesive is a medical device, specially engineered and carefully manufactured to cover and protect the catheter site from outside bacteria and viral contamination over an extended time. It protects the catheter from impact and tissue trauma at the insertion site and is vital in preventing complications associated with IV device wounds.
STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE
StayGuard™ brand of IV Catheter Adhesives is uniquely positioned as the brand of choice for medical professionals with distribution to both developed and developing markets. Made with best-quality medical-grade materials, our IV Catheter Adhesives are ISO, CE, and USFDA certified.
Advanced features of our Catheter Adhesives help medical specialists to optimize patient care and improve clinical outcomes. IV Catheter Adhesive is designed to deliver premium patient care by providing advanced catheter securement and preventing edge lift. A waterproof film coating on IV Catheter Adhesive prevents contamination and provides a barrier to external liquids, bacteria, and viruses.
IV Catheter Adhesive is easy to apply and remove. First, prepare the site according to your facility’s protocol and ensure the skin is clean and decontaminated. Wait for the antiseptic to air dry before applying the dressing. Then, apply a sterile dressing and gently apply the catheter adhesive to the patient’s skin. Slowly peel the securement tape strip from the carrier frame. Press the first half of the securement tape strip firmly onto the catheter adhesive at the tubing connection site, then continue applying the strip over the tubing connection and adhere it to the other side.
TIPS FOR DRESSING AND SECURING FOR IV PROCEDURE:
- Clip visible hair before IV device procedure.
- Sterilize/disinfect the skin before insertion.
- Patiently wait for the antiseptic to completely dry before dressing application.
- Double check that dressing is sterile.
- Ensure to not stretch the plastic to avoid tension.
- Apply both securement and dressing at the same time.
- Replace dressing if not assured of proper application.
- Remove dressing or tape extra carefully.
- Strictly follow follow-up checking schedule.
- Always ask a nurse specialist if any doubts.

At AdvaCare Pharma USA we do have other divisions dedicated to different ranges which can be of your interest. Or you can check more products within our Skin and Wound Care below:
Is IV catheter adhesive waterproof?
Yes, IV catheter adhesive helps to completely seal the catheter insertion site, keeping the dressing site cleaner and dry and reducing non-routine dressing changes.
How do I change dressings for a patient with very sensitive skin?
For patients at high risk of skin injury, consider a medical adhesive removal product, but remember these are non-sterile and must be washed off.
What steps should I take if a patient has irritated skin under a dressing?
You can try silicone dressings and tapes for patients whose skin may tear or is irritated. Patients with poor skin benefit from skin protectant barrier solutions applied before the dressing. However, if pain or skin irritation persists seek help from the medical experts, such as wound specialists. Even though the wound is from an IV device, it is still a wound and their advice will be invaluable for you and the patient.
Should I shave a patient's skin before the procedure?
Yes. A hairy arm or chest prevents the contact of dressing adhesive with the skin, which can cause the dressing to become loose and external fluids or sweat may enter the wound. It also means an increased risk of pain or even a skin tear when the dressing is removed.
