We do occasionally use this product at our Children's Hospital.  Generally this is on a tunneled catheter that the site has healed already.  Unfortunately, my understanding is that these are no longer going to be manufactured.  The owner of the product is retiring and the product won't be made - unless a company has bought the patent, etc. 

That said, I don't see any real benefit of this product.  It doesn't maintain sterility since it is used to replace adhesive dressings.  The pt. needs to do daily cleansing of the site followed by a new shield.
