Catheter Relief

We’ve had lots of calls from people regarding the Oxygen/Feeding Tube Covers – those little gems are saving a lot of ears – but a series of calls indicating another brilliant use has caught my attention and is, therefore, blogworthy. Catheters of all kinds are being wrapped with the Tube Covers and protecting delicate skin. I just took a call from an R.N. who has a patient with a catheter in her leg for the next few weeks draining an infection of some sort. This patient, in her late 50’s, is not one to sit still. The concern is that the tubing would irritate her leg at a couple of points where it tends to rub back and forth on the skin under her sweat pants as she moves about. Oxygen/Feeding Tube Covers … problem solved!
