The two-layer design provides safe securement that keeps the patient in mind and was functionally designed to reduce dependency on adhesive products. Hypoallergenic cotton offers high quality comfort first, breathable material, with no added skin irritants such as coatings, latex or rubber. Product is easily washable in a machine washer and dryer, or by hand in a hospital.
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.

the fabric is soft and I love the pocket
I don’t have much to compare to, because this is the first time I’ve ever had to purchase a PICC Line sleeve, but they are great. I purchased 2 and am purchasing 2 more because my husband says they fit nice and snug and cover his lines, so they are discreet. The black, like most materials, seems to collect or show more lint, etc, but the gray is fantastic. I’m buying another gray and trying the blue as well. I love the story behind this company, which is why I decided to buy from Carealine. There were other options on Amazon, but after reading more about the company, I decided to go to their website and buy directly. We received our products within 3 days... same day PICC Line was put in, so perfect timing. Thank you Carealine for making such a perfect product.
I am thrilled I found this wonderful company and product. I was searching for a cover for my PICC and happened upon CareAline online. I had questions regarding the material as I have sensitive skin and wanted to be sure it was soft enough. I called the company and had a wonderful conversation that reassured me about the product as well as learning about their company. Having cancer survivors and family members of cancer patients create products means they care and know what people actually need. The sleeve works perfectly and is so comfortable. My nurses and doctors have been impressed with it and have never seen anything as nice. HIGHLY recommend the sleeve and CareAline!
