Be an active member of your healthcare team. Take a proactive approach in managing the risks associated with your central line.
The CareAline Wrap is an FDA registered, clinically tested solution to many common, problematic line complications. Feel comfortable and secure knowing that your lines are protected from harmful bacteria, reducing your risk for infection and pulling of lines while providing an alternative to irritating tape.*
How to use the CareAline Wrap
Lay the wrap in front of you or your loved one with the label facing down. Pass the line through one of the two button holes. Use the first hole for longer lines, second for shorter. Thread the line between the two layers of fabric and and exit through the first button hole on the opposite side of the wrap. Slide the cap under the label and into the second button hole. Then stretch the wrap around the body and secure with velcro. Pull the wrap up to cover the dressing. Access the line as indicated while keeping the wrap in place and secure.
Designed for most central venous access or gastric lines in the torso such as Hickman, Broviac, Groshong, medi port, G-tube, or PEG tube, the CareAline Wrap can easily be moved to the side (just like your clothing) for a site check. It can be positioned in various ways on the body depending on the location of the line and does not contain latex or any type of metal that would interfere with an MRI or any other scan. Whether at the hospital, clinic, home or in the community, you will be provided with the privacy and security to live your life free from the risk associated with hanging venous access and gastric lines.
All of our products can be machine washed on any cycle. We recommend machine drying on a medium heat cycle. Secure the Velcro before washing to protect other clothing.
When in the hospital, you can wash in the sink and lay flat to dry when necessary. We recommend washing every 1-3 days and when soiled.
*PLEASE NOTE: THIS DOES NOT REPLACE THE STERILE BANDAGE USED TO SECURE THE TUBING AT THE INSERTION SITE
**Avoid stretching the fabric when wet - do not wring, or hang to dry.
