What is a Picc Line Cover?
When you have PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) line, it can cause a great amount of stress and many things to worry about in your day to day life. A PICC line is a soft, plastic tube that is inserted into a large vein in the arm and then up to a main vein near the heart. This allows people to receive chemotherapy and other medication.
As you can see, it is a straight path for germs and more to the heart through the bloodstream… how is that not stressful! DryPro understands and is here to help.
