Lyme disease is an infection caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. If you have contracting Lyme’s, your doctor might recommend IV antibiotic treatment. Showering and bathing with a PICC line can be frustrating becuase the area around where the PICC is inserted is prone to infection.
You will find that using the Latex Free Dry Pro as a PICC line cover when showering or swimming helps to keep bacteria and other contaminates away from the vein the PICC is inserted in. With a Dry Pro Latex Free PICC line cover, you can keep the area around the vein completely dry, whether you are in the shower or the ocean. If you have a PICC (Peripherally inserted central catheter), Dry Pro PICC covers will save your sanity and your summer.
The Dry Pro uses our same vacuum seal technology over your PICC or IV line, but is tan colored and open on both ends to keep your hands free for use. You can now shower, bath and swim with a PICC line with complete waterproof protection. In order to size the Dry Pro™ for PICC lines, measure the circumference of the forearm and the bicep. The protector can be trimmed to fit anyone, just make sure that your measurements are within the range below. NOW LATEX FREE!
Finding the right size is easy: Simply measure the circumference of the arm 2-3” above the site of the PICC line and 2”-3” below.
