Red Dot Soft Cloth Electrode 50ea 3M™ Red Dot™ Soft Cloth Monitoring Electrode 2238 / 3M™ Red Dot™ Monitoring Electrode with 3M™ Micropore™ Tape Backing 2239 In today’s patient population, fragile skin is often a concern whether due to age, medication or repeated removal of adhesive products. It’s a delicate balance to protect the patient’s skin and maintain good adhesion to obtain acceptable EKG trace quality Comfortable backings to follow skin contours. 3M™ Micropore™ and soft cloth tape backings are low profile to minimize catching of medical devices and fabrics. This reduces the risk of early lift which often necessitates electrode removal and replacement. Gentle adhesives. Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSAs) need both pressure and warmth (from the patient’s body) to achieve optimum adhesion. 3M has formulated these electrodes PSAs to be gentler to the skin.
