When dealing with tubes, devices and catheters, stabilizing and securing are critical. Hy-Tape does not compromise skin health as it adheres firmly to skin and devices. Hy-Tape is a unique water-resistant and washable tape especially suited for use with endotracheal tubes. It adheres to wet, oily, or hairy skin and remains intact in the presence of moisture until change is indicated. Its zinc oxide-based adhesive soothes the skin and aids in the reduction of injuries such as skin tears and tape burns. Hy-TapeŽ is particularly indicated for newborns and pediatric patients because it is so gentle to young skin. The zinc oxide adhesive can help reduce the chance of dermatitis or skin trauma.
A unique feature of Hy-TapeŽ that makes it work so well with endotracheal tubes is its elasticity, allowing accommodation to respirations decreasing the chance of skin damage or shift in tube position. Because it is waterproof, secretions may be easily cleansed without requiring a change of tape. Hy-TapeŽ is the ideal product when an adhesive or tape must remain on the skin for an extended period of time or when moisture is present.
