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.
