PICC Line Sleeves
The CareAline™ Sleeve for PICC lines is designed to cover and protect the body, external catheter line(s) and cap(s). The sleeve covers the insertion area and dressing protecting it from clothing, rubbing, and other external influences (this does not replace the sterile bandage used to secure the insertion site). The CareAline™ Sleeve keeps the lines in place keeping it off the patient’s skin. This eliminates the need for irritating tape to hold the tube and cap in place when the patient is not being treated.

Tips and Tricks
Tips and tricks for using the CareAline™ Sleeves
CareAline™ Products are Single Patient Use. We recommend you wash and dry your garment every 2 – 3 days unless it gets soiled, then it needs to be washed right away. Washing your products on a regular basis keeps them clean. Keep in mind that constant wear will cause stretching. Washing and drying them will bounce them back to normal.
- CareAline™ products can be machine washed on the Hot cycle
- We recommend machine drying on a medium heat cycle.
