Product Description

420200 SKIN-PREP Protective Barrier Wipe by Smith&Nephew

Forms a transparent film dressing over intact skin to reduce friction from film and tape removal.

  • Item# 420200
  • 4.25 ounce spray

Description

SKIN-PREP is a liquid film-forming dressing that, upon application to intact skin, forms a protective film to help reduce friction during removal of tapes and films.  SKIN-PREP can also be used to prepare skin attachment sites for drainage tubes, external catheters, surrounding ostomy sites and adhesive dressings.

 Features & Benefits
  • Helps tape and film adhesion.
  • Fast and easy to use, only one coat is required, so less product is used per application.
  • Removes easily using skin cleanser or soap and water, so unsanitary residue isn’t left in or around the wound area.
  • Applies easily, even on awkward areas such as elbows, knees, and heels. Moves naturally with patients’ skin and won’t crack or peel.
  • Allows skin to "breathe" so tapes and films adhere better.
  • May increase intervals between dressing changes.
  • Pediatrician tested

Indications

  • Apply as a coating to prepare the skin for adhesives.
  • Provides a protective interface that may reduce friction during the removal of tape.
  • For skin attachment sites: drainage tubes, external catheters, surrounding ostomy sites and other adhesive dressings.
  • For use in sensitive stoma areas as a skin protectant.
  • May reduce irritation from contact with body wastes and stoma fluid.
  • Forms a protective film on skin which may reduce exposure to urine and feces.
  • SKIN-PREP should only be used on intact skin. 

Precautions

For external use only. Keep out of the reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. In the case of accidental contact, flush eyes well with water. Do not apply directly to open wounds or in deep puncture wounds. Should redness or other signs of irritation appear, discontinue use.

Ordering Codes / Reimbursement Information

  • Usual Allowable Amount: Liquid skin barrier wipes: 3 boxes of 50 per 6 months.  Adhesive remover: 16 oz. per 6 months.  Tape: 20 units (360 sq. in.) per month.  (Note: a unit is based on 1 in. wide tape.)    
  • Specific Coverage Criteria: Covered with any type of ostomy.

How To Use Skin Prep Protective Barrier Spray

For OTC applications, please follow Directions and Instructions for Use provided by your physician, nurse or healthcare professional. If no instructions were provided, follow the directions below:

Step 1 : Skin should be clean and dry prior to application of SKIN-PREP.

Step 2 : Apply a uniform coating over entire area you wish to protect, i.e., around stoma, under dressing, catheter site, etc.

Step 3:  SKIN-PREP will dry in approximately 30 seconds. If you miss an area that you intended to cover, wait until the original area of application has dried, then reapply to the missed area.

Step 4 : For maximum protection, an optional second coating of SKIN-PREP may be applied and allowed to dry before covering area with dressing or other adhesive product.

Step 5 :  If SKIN-PREP is applied to an area with skin folds or other skin-to-skin contact, make sure that skin-contact areas are separated to allow the coating to thoroughly dry before returning to normal position.

How To Remove Skin Prep Protective Barrier Spray:

Step 1:  The removal of adhesive products may also remove SKIN-PREP, so reapplication is necessary any time that adhesive products are changed.

Step 2:  Removal of SKIN-PREP is not necessary before reapplication. Clean and dry the area and apply fresh SKIN-PREP as directed above.
