"Whether it's placing an IV-line, checking vitals or administering life-saving treatment, patient care begins with the skin," said Ron Hebert, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Covalon. "An IV-dressing shouldn't cause neonates and their caregivers distress, yet many do. In addition to preventing infections, our soft silicone dressings are designed to keep even the most delicate skin safe and protected – no more adhesive removers, no more apologies."

This year's Neonatal/Fetal Conference is bringing together practitioners, clinicians, and students in the fields of neonatology, pediatrics, obstetrics, genetic counseling, maternal fetal medicine, fetal surgery, pediatric surgery, cardiology and sonography, to highlight concepts of continuous quality improvement and safety in fetal and neonatal practice by offering science, methodology, practice initiatives and discussion points.

Covalon's gentle and effective infection prevention and skin protection solutions that are well-suited for pediatric patients include:

CovaClear® IV – utilizes soft silicone adhesive technology to help protect patients from skin injuries, but does not incorporate antimicrobials, for use with patients who either don't require or cannot tolerate antimicrobials.

VALGuard® - an FDA listed, transparent, environmental barrier designed to protect catheter hubs and line connections from external contaminants and gross contamination, including body fluids and other secretions. It incorporates a quick-release pull strip for fast access to infusion hubs and for easy removal.

IV Clear® - the world's only dual-antimicrobial vascular access dressing that offers complete transparency at and around the insertion site for easy daily assessment. It also utilizes soft silicone adhesive technology to minimize skin injuries and preserve skin barrier functions, and incorporates safe amounts of antimicrobials, without sacrificing efficacy, to protect against chemical irritation.

SurgiClear® - the world's only dual-antimicrobial clear postoperative dressing that provides full surgical site visibility, allowing for visual site inspection and thus eliminating the need for early and multiple dressing removals.
