Holding o2 in place
Written By: Alice Shrewsberry, Mullens 3/4/2017
My o2 would come off during sleep, which was extremely dangerous for me. The skin fix work extremely well,with no slippage. But, they are hard to remove when you want them off. They are also very expensive.
RN tip for removing these
Written By: Jeanne, Long Island, NY 2/15/2017
I see a lot of people complain about removing these without irritation. Use a facial swab or a washcloth with a dab of mineral oil (baby oil) to remove these VERY EASILY without irritation. This is what nurses use in ICUs & hospitals to remove adhesive on tender skin. Acetone ( nail polish remover) on non tender areas is even better but not for babies or the elderly with crepe like skin tissue.
Bad reaction from adhesive

they were ok when I put them on, not what I was hoping for, however, when I went to take them off, the pain was extremely high. The patches would not come off easy enough and it felt like my skin was going to tear. It caused redness and a mark for a few days. I will not be trying again.

These were too harsh, very difficult to remove, felt like they were tearing my facial skin. Would not order them again.

This is a one time use only. It doesn't stick the second time you use it. So you would need a new set every time you take your cannula off.
Too difficult to remove

These were great to hold cannula in place on our 13 month old boy but impossible to take off. It brought skin off his face on one side so much he's now bleeding. Going to search for something else today for poor guy. He's suffering enough without peeling skin off his face

Highly recommend. Excellent product and excellent customer service!!
caution when using
Written By: Mike, Florida 4/22/2016
It does keep the cannula in place all night but getting the patches off in the am is not a pleasant experience. Patches really stick and can tear skin if not careful also leave red blotches where they attached to your skin, the glue residue is difficult to get off even after using two different soaps and rubbing alcohol.
a good help, but not perfect

the "sticky stuff" that attached the product to the face did not come off the face when removing the product. Not good for sensitive skin. The product did, however, keep the cannula in place all night.

help when we thought there wasn't any
Written By: Mona W , Pembroke Pines, FL 3/26/2014
The lady who uses the tender grips is 101 yrs. old and we really needed some way to keep the oxygen canula from coming off her face. Now, even when she pulls it off her ears, it still stays in her nose thanks to the tender grips which are quite strong! Thank you for a wonderful product.
Great idea but needs a little improvement
Written By: Mrs. B., Charleston, SC 2/8/2014
I ordered these for my husband as he requires O2 therapy 24/7 in hopes they would help keep his cannula in place while sleeping and taking naps. They do not hold well enough as his face rubs against the pillow or his forearm tucked under his head. They also did not hold up well when he perspires. The clear overlay piece is nice but does not re-attach well if you need to remove and replace the cannula (changing shirts). The hospital gave us a roll of Band-Aid like tape the last time he was there. It was the very best product so far but I have not been able to find it anywhere. Please keep trying! Thank you.
I love these!

I have been having such a time with my cannulas as they seem to want to lay right up under my eye, which drives me crazy. I ordered some of these and they are solving the problem, and they aren't real obvious either. I wouldn't be embarrassed at all to wear them to go shopping or anywhere. At last the cannula stays in place and I can place it where it's more comfortable for me. I don't know how many times one can take the cannula off and then put it back on without changing these tender grip things, but I've done it once and had no problem reattaching. I wish I would have done a search for comfort items and found these much earlier.
Great for infants
