Adhesive Strips, Multipurpose

Definition : Adhesive strips designed for a variety of different applications, including to cover small wounds and to attach dressings or other small devices (e.g., intravenous catheters) to the skin. These strips typically are short (usually less than 4 inches/10 cm) in length and narrow (typically 1 to 2 inches/2.5 to 5 cm) flexible strips evenly covered on one side with pressure-sensitive adhesive. The strips are usually made of cloth (e.g., cotton), plastic, paper, and/or other materials; some strips include a central wound pad. Multipurpose adhesive strips are intended for single use (i.e., disposable); they are usually supplied in precut sizes and/or shapes that may be packaged sterile. Adhesive strips with hypoallergenic, waterproof, and/or antimicrobial properties are available.
