Barri-Care® Antimicrobial Moisture Barrier

NDC #46706-206-04 Product Release: 1985
NEW!!! Controlled Clinical Evaluation by GM Associates, Inc.

Indications and Usage

Topical, antimicrobial ointment specifically formulated to protect the perineal area of the incontinent patient against painful skin disorders caused by pathogenic organisms. Excellent skin protectant around ostomy sites, gastrectomy, and tracheotomy tubes or other body openings, wounds or skin lesions where drainage is common. Use on grades I through IV pressure ulcers to halt additional skin breakdown. Exposure of the skin to moisture leads to maceration, which weakens the natural barrier of the epidermis. Barri-Care® is a preventative product to avoid skin maceration and protect against moisture contact. Excellent for use by Perioperative nurses on all patient pressure points prior to lengthy surgical procedures. Excellent also for use by medical personnel on hands prior to glove applications to reduce dermal irritation and halt bacterial contamination due to moisture, as well as protect against allergic reactions to gloves.
