3M Durapore Surgical Tape is a medical adhesive tape that is used to secure dressings, tubes, and other medical devices to a patient's skin. It is a strong, non-woven tape that is hypoallergenic and latex-free. The tape is durable and can be easily torn by hand, making it convenient for use in surgical settings. It is designed to be gentle on the skin and provide long-lasting adhesion. The tape is white in color and is made of a fabric-like material for added flexibility and breathability. 

3M Durapore Surgical Tape is a type of medical adhesive tape that is commonly used in hospitals and clinics for securing dressings, splints, and tubes. It is known for its strong adhesion and durability, making it suitable for use on various parts of the body.

To use 3M Durapore Surgical Tape, follow these steps:

1. Clean the area: Before applying the tape, clean the area of skin where it will be placed with soap and water and pat it dry.

2. Measure and cut the tape: Use scissors to cut a piece of tape slightly longer than the wound or dressing that needs to be secured.

3. Peel off the backing: Gently peel off the backing from the tape, being careful not to touch the adhesive.

4. Apply the tape: Place one end of the tape on the skin and smooth it down gently, making sure it is adhered properly.

5. Secure the dressing: Use the remaining length of tape to secure the dressing, tubing, or splint in place. Press down firmly on the tape to ensure it is securely attached.

6. Finish the application: Smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the tape and trim off any excess if necessary.

3M Durapore Surgical Tape is also water-resistant, so it can be used for secure dressings on areas that may come into contact with water, such as showers or swimming. It is recommended to change the tape and dressing every 2-3 days or as advised by a healthcare professional. If the tape becomes loose or damp, it should be replaced immediately.
