Manufactured by 3M, Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressings are designed to protect and help heal partial- to full-thickness wounds with low- to moderate-exudate.
The inner layer of the hydrocolloid adhesive absorbs exudate without breaking down or leaving residue in the wound. The outer barrier film protects the wound and periwound skin from contaminants, body fluids, bacteria and viruses.
The waterproof film body adheres firmly to the skin, creating a moist wound environment for up to 7 days. The dressing adhesive sticks on securely, even while showering or in the presence of incontinence. The smooth outer surface helps reduce the risk of shear and friction - which is greatly beneficial to bedridden patients.
Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressings are available in three shapes - oval, square and sacral. The oval and sacral shapes have a film border, which eliminate the need for additional tape.

Due to its unique shape, Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing - Sacral Shape is useful on body areas that are difficult to dress. Examples of such areas are heels, elbows, breasts, and the sacral area of the buttocks.
