Engineered as a safety device
The Pediatric Central Line Protector minimizes accidental dislodgement of the central line catheter, thus reducing the need for additional surgical interventions.
Minimizes tampering by toddlers & away from diaper area
The unique design of the garment wraps the lines around the body of the child and out-of-reach of curious hands and mouths.
Keeps the lines securely out of the diaper area.
Designed for nurses by a nurse
A retired PACU nurse and seamstress designed the wrap to ensure medical professionals could access lumens at night in the dark without waking their patient
Color-coded tabs on the wrap match the lumens of the catheter for easy identification by hospital staff and care givers.
Eliminates exposed looping, a primary cause of dislodgments
With the over-and-above protection of the Pediatric Central Line Protector, painful snagging on clothing, bedding or furniture is a thing of the past.
Minimized tape while providing maximum protection of the surgical site
Tape removal not only hurts, it can cause epidermal stripping, skin irritation, or even dislodgment.
Added layer of protection against drools or spills over sterile dressing site
Velcor® closure permits continuous CVC access & assessment
Over-taping, gauze or cohesive wraps can obscure the CVC site and surrounding area, causing nurses to miss crucial, early signs of trouble. But with the Pediatric Central Line Protector, there is always immediate access to the site in compliance with 2006 INS Standards 43.2 that states “Catheters shall be stabilized using a method that does not interfere with assessment and monitoring of the access site or impede vascular circulation or delivery of the prescribed therapy.”
Velcro® fingers allow for a custom fit and eliminates over-taping
The adjustable, resealable Velcro® fingers across the chest and shoulder straps provide for a perfect custom fit and eliminates the need to tape the catheter lines in place while preventing over-taping of fragile skin. The fingers also allow for easy, anytime IV site inspection. This is especially important in pediatrics, where IV sites are inspected hourly.
Washable, single patient use; latex, DEHP and BPA free
The 100% cotton garment is machine washable and reusable by a single patient.
