  • Medipore +Pad adhesive wound dressing should not be used to replace sutures or other primary wound closure methods.
  • The dressing should be changed if not intact. An intact dressing is one that has been properly applied to achieve and maintain good adhesion, at least around the total periphery of the dressing. To attain the best results, choose the Medipore dressing size such that it has a margin which adheres to dry, healthy skin around the wound site.
  • The site should be observed frequently for signs of infection. Infection may be signaled by pain, fever, swelling, redness, or an unusual odor or discharge. In such case remove the dressing and take standard precautions.


  • Before applying the dressing, hemostasis of the catheter site or wound should be achieved
  • The skin should be dry and free of detergent residue to ensure good adhesion
  • If tension is applied, it may result in skin trauma
