BD ChloraShield™ IV dressing with CHG antimicrobial

Experience visibly improved care

The innovative BD ChloraShield™ IV dressing is designed to uniquely address some of the limitations of standard IV catheter dressings including loss of adhesive integrity due to the presence of moisture and exudate.1

BeneHold™ CHG adhesive technology

  • Proprietary adhesive technology with CHG formulated into the acrylic adhesive to act as a dressing preservative
  • Sustained antimicrobial activity against skin flora for up to seven days2

IV site visibility and transparency

  • Transparent material allows visibility of catheter site.
  • Fluid management helps keep the catheter site free of fluids to aid inspection.

Optimized fluid management

  • Moisture and other fluids are wicked away from the skin and absorbed by the adhesive.*
  • Absorbed fluid is released through the film by vapor exchange.
  • The dressing acts as a water-resistant, bacterial barrier protecting skin from outside contaminants.

Security and comfort

  • Thin, flexible material is easy to apply and remove.
  • IV Surround version includes an outer border for additional security.
  • IV Surround slit minimizes tenting around the catheter.
