Opsite IV 3000  consist of a thin hydrophilic polyurethane membrane coated with a layer of an acrylic emulsion adhesive. Because of the hydrophilic nature of the film, the dressing is highly permeable to water vapour, (about 3000 g/m ²/24hours), but impermeable to micro-organisms. Once in position, therefore, it provides an effective barrier to external contamination. The Opsite IV 3000 film is presented on a paper carrier and has two removable `handles' to facilitate application. The Opsite IV 3000 One Hand is presented on a paper carrier and one polypropylene carrier for ease of application.

Because the high permeability of the film permits the rapid loss of water vapour from the surface of the patient's skin to the external environment, it prevents the accumulation of moisture beneath the dressing and thus provides a dry environment which inhibits bacterial proliferation. This in turn reduces the possibility of infection occurring at the catheter site.

What are the benefits of using it? 

  • IV3000 film and unique grid pattern adhesive allowing optimum moisture vapor transfer

  • Waterproof, allowing the patient to shower with the dressing in-situ

  • Acts as a bacterial barrier

  • Lowering incidence of device related septicemia

  • Prevents skin maceration

How do I use it? 

Before application of Opsite IV 3000, the surrounding skin should be cleansed with a suitable antiseptic agent and prepared with an alcohol impregnated swab to defat and dry the skin.

To apply the dressing, part of the paper carrier should be peeled back and the dressing placed down over the venepuncture site. Without applying tension to the film it should be smoothed down firmly onto the skin. At this point the `handles' can be removed if required and used to secure the cannula hub or tubing.


IV3000 should be used on IV sites only. If a film dressing is required for open wounds such as pressure sores, burns or donor sites, OPSITE Flexigrid Moisture Vapour Permeable Adhesive Film Dressing should be used. Use on prepared dry skin only.
