Nurses Testimonials

“As a nurse, I was amazed with this product for several reasons. The first being the cleanliness of the surgical site; which was vital in the recovery process. The device kept the central line lumens out  of reach of the patient and out of the diaper area decreasing the risk for infection. The second reason involved  the integrity of the line itself. The wrap protects the line by keeping pressure off the line and from twisting which  can cause the line to occlude and sometimes break involving surgical intervention to replace. The third reason is each tab is labeled with the color of lumen making it easy to draw labs or know which lumen to start a medication in. In my opinion, the Pediatric Central Line Protector is a great device not only for the patient, but also for the nurse.”

“First and foremost,  the Pediatric Central Line Protector  plays an essential role in keeping central lines clean, dry, and intact, and with this special immunosuppressed patient population, minimizing chances of infection is always the number one priority. Central lines generally only have to be changed once a week, but with young children we often change those more often due to spills saturating the dressing, kids pulling off the dressing, or numerous other reasons. Every time we change a dressing there is the potential to contaminate the line, but  the Pediatric Central Line Protector  covered her central line and dressing, greatly decreasing her need for multiple dressing changes. Being a night nurse, the Pediatric Central Line Protector  really helped us get to her line much easier to draw labs or switch lumens without having to wake her up and disrupt her sleep. Also, central lines are heavy and hang down on their little chests and often get twisted, pulled on, tangled up in the diaper area or even pulled out potentially causing serious danger.  The Pediatric Central Line Protector  practically eliminates all these possible problems. I would personally recommend  the Pediatric Central Line Protector to every parent that has a child with a central line!”
