The DRYPro PICC line protector is a waterproof cover designed to help those who have PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) lines shower, bath and swim without concern. The DRYPro PICC line protector is made from a durable surgical rubber that won’t tear/rip, making it safe for both salt and fresh water environments. The DRYPro PICC line protector offers a vacuum seal that makes it completely waterproof and completely submersible. The material is also latex free and safe for daily use.
PICC lines or IV lines are used to deliver various medications, infusion therapy for antibiotics, chemotherapy, hydration, or TPN (Total Parental Nutrition) and are placed in the vein, emerging from the skin. Since the area around where the PICC is inserted is known to be prone to infection, keeping this area sealed when in water is essential. With a DRYPro Waterproof PICC line cover, you can keep bacteria and other contaminates away from the vein the PICC is inserted in completely dry – reducing the risk of infection around the PICC line due to contaminants in water.
