Leafix Key training points
- When applying Leafix, make sure the skin is dry. The product will cope with sweat and fluids as long as it is put on dry skin.
- Place the Y shape anchor point first and close to the side of the mouth, so you do not have to stretch the material.
- Make sure the Leafix does not have creases or gaps particularly if the patient is Prone, this will prevent fluid or saliva getting under and affecting the adhesive.
