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.

Highly recommend this! Great quality and excellent customer service. I ordered a second one.
Kezia, I am so pleased with your product.. now I wish I had bought 2 at the same time. It fits me perfectly based on the instruction of measurement/size and is so very comfortable. The nurses at the Oncology Department were very impressed, I gave them your information should they wish to pass it along to other patients. I will be purchasing another sleeve in the near future. Thank you. ?
I have been searching high and low for a PICC line cover that was comfy and secure. This cover is SO comfortable. Get this cover. You won’t regret it. Though I recommend sizing down. I measured my arm and the size I got is too big so it’s slipping down. But if you get the right size, it’s perfect!
I have an extension on my picc line and have to self administer antibiotics long term. This is by far the best cover I’ve found and accommodates the extension well. Smart design! Love the pocket, length and durable yet soft fabric. I do hope you’ll come out with more solid colors that DO NOT have contrasting thread. This makes them very casual looking and not sleek enough for wearing a dress or something nicer.
We measured but should have sized down, a good product just would not stay up. I think a smaller size may have worked better. Nice soft material.
Is the most comfortable sleeve I have bought.
PICC lines may not be the most comfortable to have but this sleeve helps so much.
I'm a nurse taking care of oncology patients. I got this for a friend who needed to use IV antibiotics after a surgery and she loved it! She said it was very comfortable. And as a nurse, I think this is a great ideato help keep the dressing intact. I would just be careful to put it on very gently and look at the dressing underneath every day to make sure it's not getting pulled up and that the skin underneath looks healthy.
This has been the best picc sleeve I have found yet. I would have gave 5 stars but the only thing I don't like is when I fold the top down for more coverage for my extension, it's loose as it bigger for the upper arm. Otherwise, it's fits perfect if I didn't roll it down.
