Improving patientsí experience of dressing removal in practice


Repeated application/removal of adhesive dressings and tapes can cause skin stripping in and around wounds, resulting in pain, increased wound size, delayed healing, inflammation and increased risk of infection.†This unit uses a series of case studies to demonstrate how medical adhesive removers help with adhesive removal, reducing pain and trauma. The unit examines how they remove dressings, tapes and other medical adhesive appliances quickly and easily from both intact and broken skin, resulting in reductions in pain, trauma, use of analgesia, infection risk, cost of dressings and nursing time.
