I am trying to obtain approval to do a trial of Statseal in pediatric patients & have reviewed prior discussion threads from this forum. The EPI RN director is quesitoning if the seal formed from statseal prevents effective protection from biopatch after 7 days? From what I have read, I have not appreciated an increase of CLABSI with the use of this product. Also the formed seal stays in place for about 7 days and it is not suggested to disrupt it with dressing changes, which will fade away on its own.
For those of you who have used the product, can you offer any data about infection rates after implementation? It looks like I may need more data than what the StatSeal's IFU.
Thank you in advance for your information. I always come to this site to verify or clarify some of the practice issues. Your discussion thread are very helpful and I appreciate your shared information.
