Ultradrape is a uniquely designed, sterile, dual-action barrier and securement dressing for use during UGPIV procedures. It was engineered to facilitate a user-friendly, no-touch aseptic procedure while

  • Minimizing securement failure

  • Offering a streamlined approach to barrier and
    securement without compromising on efficacy

  • Reducing procedure cost when compared with
    use of a sterile gel and sterile cover

  • Eliminating time-consuming clean up


UGPIV has been shown to improve IV success rates, decrease the number of percutaneous punctures and decrease the time required to achieve IV access. However, cleaning ultrasound transmission gel from patient prior to IV securement takes considerable time when done correctly. Inversely, inadequate removal of transmission gel may lead to securement dressing failure, requiring more frequent dressing changes. Research indicates contamination rates increase with the frequency of dressing lines.
