A long overdue thank you for your product. It worked perfect!

April 11, 2011

“Dear DryPro,

This is a long overdue thank you for your product. My daughter Emma, age 13, broke her arm back in March, 2008 while rollerblading.  When the cast tech took her cast off, she told us her daughter broke her wrist right before camp and they bought your product.  I said I wished I knew about this before.  Well, six weeks out of the cast she broke it again, at a friend’s house, jumping off a swing.  This happened two weeks before our trip to Morocco- staying right on the Mediterranean.  Of course the doctor said not to get it wet, especially in another country because it could get infected under the  cast, etc.  Well, we bought the cast sleeve anyway, and it worked perfect!  Not one drop of water got to the cast!  As you can see by the pictures she played in the sand, jumped the waves, and swam in the pool at the hotel.  When I see someone in a cast I make sure to tell them of your product, that it is worth the price!  Thank you again!”

KEEPING YOUR PICC LINE DRY = REDUCING INFECTION

PICC Line Covers

One of the most common complication risks occurring in home care situations is infection. Typically the infection source is directly related to the dressing, which covers the PICC insertion site, because it gets wet. However, this risk can now be greatly minimized, if not avoided altogether, with the use of a waterproof Dry Pro PICC Protector.

Maintaining a clean and dry dressing is paramount to a continued well functioning PICC line. Dressings must be changed every 7 days minimum. However, if the dressing becomes wet from water or perspiration, soiled or looses integrity, it must be changed at that time

PICC line dressings often become wet during bathing or showering. Even the most protected dressing is susceptible during bathing. Once wet, moisture and body heat become the ideal breeding ground for bacteria. As many PICC lines are inserted to treat infections at home with intravenous antibiotics, treating a secondary infection from a moist dressing can pose additional threat of additional hospitalization and longer antibiotic therapy.

But now there is a mechanism that will prevent the PICC dressing from getting wet during bathing or showering. The Dry Pro PICC Protector provides waterproof protection that even allows swimming and water sports. Invented by Dr. Roy Archambault DPM, once the flexible sleeve is placed over the dressing and PICC, a uniquely designed vacuum creates a water tight seal allowing the patient to bathe and shower freely as well as participate in swimming activities that may be important to their exercise regime. The protector is individually tailor made to provide the perfect fit for the individual’s arm that resists removal even when not inflated.

Normalcy of life is a documented boost for healing. Bathing, showering, and swimming (especially now that summer is approaching), with minimal worry about the risk to the PICC line dressing because it can now be waterproofed, can make the difference between expected and dreaded treatment time and possible complications versus expected treatment without complications. And remember – most complications stem from wet dressings.
