Waterproof cover for PICC line?

Postby Fernack45 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 4:41 pm

Hi,
Husband had PICC line inserted today. Managed to get it wet in the bath despite wrapping cling film round his arm. Dies anyone have any recommendations for a waterproof cover that actually works. Thank you. X

Hi there,

There are several products if you google them, however this one comes recommended by others who have had PICC lines inserted:

Thanks for this. I've been searching for options lately. A friend of mine used https://sealskinwrap.com/ when she was struggling with pancreatitis. She said it was a life saver. It looks like it could have other uses as well.
