Introducing Care+Wear at FSA Store
Care+Wear's first product, an ultra-soft, antimicrobial PICC line cover, is designed to help the 6 million people each year who live with a PICC line as part of their treatment plans.
According to Care+Wear's team:
"Patients are given a PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) line to help access the blood stream. They can be used in a variety of circumstances, including used in treatments for Cancer, Diabetes, Lyme Disease and TPN.A PICC line is inserted in a peripheral vein in the arm and then advanced proximally toward the heart through increasingly larger veins, until the tip rests in the distal superior vena cava or cavoatrial junction. PICC lines are usually inserted by physicians, physician assistants (in the US), radiologist assistants (in the US,) respiratory therapists, nurse practitioners, or specially trained certified registered nurses like vascular access nurses and radiologic technologists using ultrasound, chest radiographs, and fluoroscopy to aid in their insertion and to confirm the placement of the line."
Developed with leading doctors and nurses, Care+Wear's cover is now available in numerous hospitals, retail locations, and of course, at FSAstore.com as well! The cover has an EPA approved microbial treatment, is machine washable and reusable, and a mesh window for breathability.
The company also recently launched a new product line, antimicrobial polo shirts, blouses and baseball t-shirts,for patients with chest ports. This is just the beginning of the innovation that Care+Wear is bringing to the market.
