Nurse's Notes

3M Durapore Multi-Purpose Silk Tape:
  • Multi-use silk medical tape that is always a good idea to have on hand. Adheres well to skin, dressings and tubes etc. Use skin prep pads to enhance adherence and protect skin from possible irritation.

    3M Micropore PaperTape:
  • Keep some on hand to help secure dressings with minimal skin irritation as paper tape known to be very gentle and slin friendly. Works well for frequent dressing change situations.

    3M Transpore Clear Plastic Surgical Tape:
  • Transpore tape is easy to tear into very thin strips, and is easy to use even with gloves.

    Cover-Roll Adhesive Gauze Bandage:
  • My all-time favorite type of tape to secure a dressing. It adheres exceptionally well but at the same is easy to remove and more comfortable then other types of tape I have used. I have found that it is especially gently on older patients skin which is prone to tearing and breaking down upon repeated dressing changes. I even keep a roll at home for first aid measures. Although expensive, it lasts a long time and you simply cut off what you need from roll each time. If undecided on width go with the larger size as you can always cut less but can't add to it.

    Liquid Skin-Bond Cement:
  • Helps ostomy appliances to adhere better, fill in cracks or uneven surface to help prevent leakage. 1 -4 oz can goes a long way.
