3M are pleased to sponsor the Moisture Associated Skin Damage (MASD) category with Wound Care People and hope that you will learn from the updated MASD online module.

MASD is a term that describes the damage that occurs when the skin is exposed to excessive moisture and/or irritants. Skin damage represents negative clinical outcomes resulting in potential complications such as infection, pain and suffering, increased risk of pressure ulcers and a poor patient/resident experience. In addition, skin damage increases the work and cost of care. That’s why you need a partner like 3M. A partner who thinks differently about skin and is dedicated to elevating the role skin plays in patient/resident health and healing.

Exposure over time to factors such as irritants, moisture, friction, shear and adhesives can lead to skin breakdown and conditions including:
  • Incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD)
  • Peristomal skin damage
  • Periwound skin damage
  • Intertriginous dermatitis (ITD)
3M’s market leading Cavilon range of skin care products are designed to prevent and treat MASD. Download our Cavilon Family brochure here to see the full range and how these products can help you and your patients
