Be an active member of your healthcare team. Take a proactive approach in managing the risks associated with your PICC line.
The CareAline PICC sleeve 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 PICC Sleeve
After simply pulling the sleeve onto your arm and over the insertion site, the cap(s) and line is fed through a buttonhole then placed in a pocket. The pocket is a simple but important feature that keeps lines and caps off of the skin and is unique to CareAline’s patented products. The top of the sleeve is then folded down providing a second layer of protection. Access the line as indicated while keeping the sleeve in place and secure. The pocket can be faced up or down to accommodate line placement.
Designed for the arm or leg the CareAline Picc sleeve can easily be moved to the side (just like your clothing) for a site check. It 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 lines.
