Care + Wear PICC Line Cover813 people have chosen this
PICC lines may be required for patients having regular treatment. Care + Wear PICC Line Covers are made with a breathable, comfortable cotton/lycra fabric that has an EPA-approved antimicrobial treatment.
The cover can be machine washed, and the antimicrobial treatment will last at least 100 washes while maintaining 99.9% efficacy. The cover includes a mesh window which allows both airflow and visibility to the PICC line, allowing for any changes in the appearance to be seen.
The idea for Care+Wear's innovative PICC line covers came after a friend's experience receiving treatment through a PICC line. Their friend was told to wear a sock to protect and cover the PICC line site, making the uncomfortable treatment even more uncomfortable. The bulky white sock became a constant reminder of the illness. They decided to create something new and better that would help patients living with PICC lines. They wanted to help them see themselves as people first, and patients second.
- Helps to securely cover the line and prevent snags
- Soft, comfortable and breathable cotton / lycra blend
- Mesh window allows airflow and visibility
Please note: We recommend that you measure your bicep before ordering to ensure you get the right size. Get a friend to measure the circumference of your bicep where the PICC line will be or is already inserted. If you are between sizes, please order a size down as the covers run large

Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?"I loved the mesh window, which make it easy to see my PICC site and ensure it was doing well. I also love that the band kept everything nice and covered (which helped to prevent snags and also made me feel more normal in public). I also love that it was machine washable."
Care + Wear PICC Line Cover FAQs
Can I get my PICC Line Cover Wet?
No the Care + Wear PICC Line Cover is not waterproof, and neither is the dressing over the PICC line. It is important that your PICC line is kept dry as water at the site of the PICC line can increase the risk of it becoming infected and the PICC line needing to be removed.
How do PICC Lines work?
Picc lines are thin plastic tubes that goes into your vein. It allows healthcare professionals to give you medication that needs to go straight into your veins, and take blood tests without any additional needles.
What does PICC stand for in the term PICC line cover?
PICC stands for Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter.

The Care + Wear Picc line covers are instilled with an EPA approved antimicrobial treatment, that will last for 100 washes.

Tubey grip bandages rolls up and are too light. These covers are thicker, more attractive and stay put. I'd highly recommend it.
Unfortunately the picc line cover is just not quite long enough to cover my picc line site. I absolutely love the design and concept but I personally need the meshed area to be longer so that all the elements of the picc line can be covered.
This over turned my dressing black and constantly fell down. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!
I measured my upper arm as 11.5 inch before buying this product and although I went for Small (11"-13"), it didn't fit properly. It is very loose and also long for my arm. As I am petite, I was expecting it cover all my upper arm but didn't expect the fit to be loose as well. Now I ordered an extra small to see it that will fit, however disappointed to see that Camel colour is not available in this size. Camel is the closest to tan colour to hid under light coloured tops and shirts, so I would have thought that this will be the most preferred colour and therefore available in all sizes?
I love this cover, I'd seen another lady with one and didn't really understand the value until I got one myself. It gives me confidence that everything's tucked in and I can wear normal clothes when I go out. Love it
I got this for my wife. She finds it really comfortable. An excellent product which we have recommended to her community care team; who are impressed and making others aware.
Good product flexible and comfy x
I got this for my husband and he's so pleased with it, it's so tidy and comfortable.
I love your product! So unique, comfy, perfect.
I really like the air vent around the PICC area for easy viewing but also for air.
I looked at many options before I purchased yours. Yours was the best quality
I do really like the mesh panel. For my irritated skin it's nice to have some airflow unlike wearing cardigans like I've been doing to keep everything in place.
I loved the mesh window, which makes it easy to see my PICC site and ensure it was doing well. I also love that the band kept everything nice and covered (which helped to prevent snags and also made me feel more normal in public.) I also love that it was machine washable.
She had her dressing changed yesterday and the nurse loved it.....I love the cotton lycra blend, love the screen and breathability. We are still loving it.
The product was very comfortable and I would highly recommend it!
We're really thrilled with the cover and grateful for your care!
It's perfect. I can't even express how much more comfortable it is now. There's room for the extension and big bulky alcohol cap, and it doesn't budge.
