Day 72 – Dressing over former Trifusion Hickman Catheter Site – November 24 2011

As instructed, I left the dressing over the Trifusion Hickman Catheter site in place for 24 hours. They had it cover with a green film and sure enough, my skin reacted to it.
I covered it with a gauze and my silk tape. The dressing is supposed to be exposed to the air and not covered with plastic film like Tegaderm.´╗┐The culture they did of the end of the Trifusion Hickman Catheter came back today with NO GROWTH – which is excellent.
