Medical Transparent Adhesive Tape is a semi-translucent securing tape that provides water-resistant protection from external contaminants. Like other medical tapes, it is used for securing IV tubing and catheters, wound dressings, and any application that requires liquid resistance. The transparency of the tape also allows the underlying skin to be more easily examined.
STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE
StayGuard™ Medical Transparent Tape provides a waterproof barrier with hypoallergenic adhesive to minimize or eliminate allergic reaction for sensitive skin. Although the microporous option is not available for this type of tape, the benefits include increased elasticity for use on areas of the skin that require more movement, such as joints, in addition to liquid resistance. Various sizes (from 1.25cm to 10cm) also make this a versatile option for most applications.
Medical Transparent Adhesive Tape is utilized for numerous purposes in hospitals, clinics, first aid kits, and household use. Transparent surgical tapes can be used to hold any medical tubing, devices, or dressings onto the skin. However, unlike other types of medical tape, our transparent option has the ability to stretch and resist liquid. This product is sold in both the hospital and retail sectors and is widely available in many countries.
Why should I choose the Transparent Adhesive Tape over the other surgical tapes?
StayGuard™ transparent tape is waterproof for closer monitoring at the site of the wound.
How often do I have to change the dressing/taping?
It would depend on the type of a wound. Generally speaking, you could leave a dressing for three to five days. Refer to a medical professional for more information in regards to how to treat your specific wound.
