[IP] Tegaderm v. IV 3000



Tegaderm and IV 3000, while similar, are different on one major way:
The IV 3000 has a semipermeable barrier that allows it to "breathe" and
dries much better after getting wet.

Also, as it's used for IVs, it is applied to the skin first, then the IV
catheter put through it, and more adhesive on top.  This allows for an
even better adhesion to the skin.  (A little too much tape for me,
however.)

 Tegaderm/IV 3000 is a transparent "bandage" (for lack of a better word)
that
you can cut a hole in & apply over the site. Keeps Joshua's site on for
3 to 4
days (I know, "bad mommy"!)
