Also known as medical adhesive tape, surgical tape is available in many different types for a variety of medical applications but perhaps the most common is used with gauze and bandages as a dressing. Different types of surgical tape are generally available water-resistant, latex-free, paper tape, and available in a variety of levels of adhesion.
Finding the proper surgical tape is important to provide proper securement with durable skin adhesion. When choosing surgical or medical tape, good questions to ask include:
- Are there any allergies to medical tape materials like latex or adhesives?
- Do you have sensitive skin?
- How will the tape be used?
