Consensus Statements Published Regarding The Assessment, Prevention And Treatment Of Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injuries

Stocks in this article: MMM

The event was moderated by Mikel Gray, PhD, who co-authored the document. Dr. Gray is editor-in-chief of the Journal of Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing; professor and nurse practitioner at University of Virginia-Charlottesville; and past president of both the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates (SUNA) and Certification Board for Urologic Nurses and Associates (CBUNA).

Medical adhesives are a component of a variety of products including tapes, dressings, electrodes, ostomy supplies and patches. They provide securement for both critical and noncritical devices and products, facilitate skin protection and healing, and allow noninvasive monitoring.

3M’s unmatched leadership in adhesives – the company introduced masking tape in 1925 – led to the debut of the first hypoallergenic surgical tape in 1960. Today 3M offers a full line of proprietary medical tapes. Product overviews and additional information is available through the Medical Tapes section of the 3M Health Care website.

“As the industry leader in medical adhesives we feel it is important to help drive understanding of the impact of medical adhesives on patient care,” said Bill Cruise, vice president and general manager, 3M Critical & Chronic Care Solutions. “This effort has been a productive and substantive coming together of a diverse group of experts with common goals. We’ve welcomed the opportunity to support such an effort.”
