[IP] what is elastoplast

What exactly is Elastoplast? Would it be stickier than a "stack" of IV
Prep, Mastisol, and IV3000? Kyle still has some trouble with infusion sites
lasting during football season using this, although it worked great for
sweaty basketball camp in August!

It is an adhesive tape with rubber base. It is chiefly used after
angiography to hold a wad of gauze in the puncture site and provide
compression so bleeding does not continue after the needle and or sheath
was removed. it does stickbut it it unpleasent feeling it is very sticky
and adhears to sneakers well enough to use as a repair material.
