CATHGUARD

CATHGUARD

CathGuard is a unique, water-resistant, soft fabric, protective pocket. It provides maximum patient comfort while protecting and storing the exterior lumen of the patient's central line catheter between dialysis treatments. A patient's catheter can be quickly and easily placed into the pocket. Each CathGuard pocket has its own self-adhesive strips for attaching the pocket to the patient's skin.

 

CathGuard adhesive strips are designed to attach the pocket securely to the patient, yet make the pocket easy to remove without causing discomfort for the patient.

Use of CathGuard helps to immobilize the patient's catheter and may aid in reducing trauma to the catheter surgical insertion site. In addition, CathGuard keeps the catheter clean, may help prevent infections, safeguards the integrity of the catheter caps, and presents a flatter, less-visible profile
