3M ID 70201185157UPC 10707387789531Catalog Number 2268-3
  • Conformable backing follows skin contours - 3M™ soft cloth backings are low profile to minimize catching of medical devices and fabrics. This may reduce the risk of early lift, which often necessitates electrode removal and replacement.
  • Gentle adhesives - Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSAs) need both pressure and warmth, from the patient's body, to achieve optimum adhesion. 3M has formulated these electrodes PSAs to be gentler to the skin.
  • Small size with a low profile for increased patient comfort and conformability
  • Lift tab makes electrode removal easy.

The 3M™ Red Dot™ Soft Cloth Monitoring Electrodes are well suited for applications where fluids are present, due to the foam polyehtylene backing that is fluid-resistant. Because they don't absorb liquids, which could reduce the electrode's ability to adhere well to the patient's skin.

In today's patient population, fragile skin is often a concern whether due to age, medication or repeated removal of adhesive products. It's a delicate balance to protect the patient's skin and maintain good adhesion to obtain acceptable EKG trace quality.
