  • Patent number: 4941882
    Abstract: A dressing for retaining a cannula on the skin is described. The dressing comprises a backing film coated on one face with an adhesive layer and with first and second release sheets covering the adhesive layer. A hole and a dividing line are cut through the dressing and second release sheet so that the dividing line extends from the hole to one edge of the dressing and the edge of the second release sheet. In use when the second release sheet is removed the hole in the dressing fits around the indwelling cannula. In a preferred form a portion of the dressing comprises an adhesive coated handle which is stiffer than the remainder of the dressing and which carries the hole and dividing line.
