Covalon invites all attendees to booth 425 at the Huntington Convention Center, where they can explore our compassionate infection prevention solutions tailor made for pediatric patients.

“At Covalon, we deeply believe that healing shouldn’t hurt,” said Ron Hebert, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Covalon. “We understand that nurses, our frontline heroes, require the best tools to deliver the most compassionate care, which is one of the reasons 9 of the top 10 US pediatric cancer treatment hospitals now use Covalon’s technology.

Covalon’s patented infection prevention and wound care products include:

  • VALGuard® – a transparent, environmental barrier designed to protect catheter hubs and line connections from external contaminants and gross contamination, including body fluids and other secretions. It incorporates a quick-release pull strip for fast access to infusion hubs and for easy removal.
  • SurgiClear® – the world’s only dual-antimicrobial clear postoperative dressing that provides full surgical site visibility, allowing for visual site inspection and thus eliminating the need for early and multiple dressing removals.
  • IV Clear® – the world’s only dual-antimicrobial vascular access dressing that offers complete transparency at and around the insertion site for easy daily assessment. It also utilizes soft silicone adhesive technology to minimize skin injuries and preserve skin barrier functions, and incorporates safe amounts of antimicrobials, without sacrificing efficacy, to protect against chemical irritation.
