Science and innovation are cornerstones of 3M, but they only matter if we can use what we know to make patients' lives better. We understand the intersection of adhesives and skin health and work to provide innovative products, from medical tapes and adhesive skin closures to barrier creams and dressings, that will make your job easier and help lead to better patient outcomes.
We understand that wound care is complex, requiring clinicians to adapt dressing selection and procedures to accommodate changing levels of exudate and difficult body contours. 3M wound care dressings make it easier for you to maintain the moisture balance needed for optimal wound healing.
Medical tapes are utilized in numerous health care settings. With all the intricacies that surround medical tapes, it can often be a complicated product to understand. Medical tapes can be a strategic area of value, with the right supplier, providing the right products and the right tools for your needs.
Protecting your patient's skin is of utmost importance. Help protect your patient's skin from breakdown caused by incontinence, medical adhesive related skin injuries (MARSI), chronic wounds, diabetes, ostomy care, or fungal infections.
Your patients with chronic edema want to engage fully in daily activities—without feeling uncomfortable or self-conscious about what’s on their legs and feet. To help people with edema meet their goals for health and quality of life, 3M created a lightweight, two-layer wrapping system that delivers effective compression without causing pain.
Your patients deserve to feel both comfortable and clean. 3M™ Cavilon™ Skin Cleansers provide gentle, but effective cleansing for incontinence and other skin conditions.
We make wound closure fast, simple, and cost-effective with closures used by clinicians worldwide to improve the treatment of wounds, both acute and chronic--reducing the risk of infection compared to staples and sutures and promoting good cosmetic outcomes.
3M™ Reston™ Self-Adhering Foam Pad helps you protect your patients against skin damage from splints, casts and prostheses.
