Description:

The case for adopting the 3M TegadermCHGIV securement dressing for central venous and arterial catheter insertion sites is supported by the evidence. This technology allows observation, and provides antiseptic coverage, of the catheter insertion site. It reduces catheter-related bloodstream infections and local site infections compared with semipermeable transparent (standard) dressings. It can be used with existing care bundles.

The 3M TegadermCHGIV securement dressing should be considered for use in critically ill adults who need a central venous or arterial catheter in intensive care or high dependency units. The estimated cost saving from using a 3M Tegaderm CHGIV securement dressing (TegadermCHG) instead of a standard transparent semipermeable dressing is £93 per patient. This estimate is based on a baseline catheter-related bloodstream infection rate of 1.48 per 1,000catheter days. Tegaderm CHG is estimated to be cost neutral when the baseline catheter-related bloodstream infection rate is 0.18 per 1,000catheter days, and cost incurring when the baseline rate falls below that figure.
