DryPro PICC Protector Review: This Will Change Your Life if You Have A PICC Line!

DryPro PICC Protector Review: This Will Change Your Life if You Have A PICC Line!

We had the best DryPro PICC Protector review from Sara at Inflamed & Untamed, and we want to share it with you.

“I am serious when I say that this product will change your life if you have a PICC line. DryPro did not pay me to write this review, they did not send me free product, they don’t even know I’m writing this, and all thoughts and opinions on this product are my own. I just love it so much I had to share this with you because I wish I knew about it all the other times that I have had a PICC line.

I came across DryPro when I was searching the internet to see if it was possible to go swimming with a PICC line. When I clicked on the link to the website I read DryPro’s claims that you could do ANY water activity with it and it would keep your PICC line completely clean and dry. You could even swim, they say.

Yeah right!, I thought to myself. No way could this thing do that.

As I read through reviews online I decided to order it anyway and give it a shot because I was looking for something that would make showering easier. My PICC line is going to be in for about a year and showering is something I dread because of the line. Up until I got the DryPro my typical method for protecting my PICC line in the shower was wrapping it in saran wrap, covering it with a Ziploc bag, and then using medical tape to seal it around my arm. NOT easy to do by yourself, very time consuming, and impossible to keep the line completely dry. Not to mention the medical tape hurt when taking it off after showering and I even shave my arms.

DryPro lived up to it’s claims! Showering is sooooooooo much better now that I have this. It makes the process of showering with a PICC line much faster and I feel more confident because I know my line is actually staying dry. I don’t have to have anyone help me wrap my arm with this and it’s very easy to use. All you do is slide it onto your arm and then use the pump to vacuum seal it. You can use it over and over again so it’s really worth the money.

I did try out swimming with it just to see if it was possible. I was pretty nervous about it so I only stayed in the water for a short time and didn’t submerge my arm for long periods of time but the DryPro kept my PICC line completely dry while I was in the water. Seriously, if you have a PICC line you should get this.”

How do I find my size?

I know what you are thinking: I do not want to get my cast, prosthetic, or etc. to get wet, so this protector needs to fit skin tight. I need to get the perfect size, but how am I going to do that without trying it on?

DryPro vs Waterproof Cast

DryPro vs Waterproof Cast

With summer finally here and the cold weather officially gone, the last thing you would want would be unable to enjoy the summer activities. Even worse, your kids are stuck not enjoying these activities, and you have no idea how you will entertain him or her. Well the good news is a cast does not have to ruin your carefree summer. No, I am not talking about a waterproof cast. I am talking about DryPro cast covers.

 

Reading that last sentence may have made you skeptical because there are many cast covers out there. Once you try one, you think just a garbage bag and duct tape would have done just the same job, if not better. Also, it is cheaper. Or better yet, a waterproof cast saves you the hassle of dealing with a handmade cast cover, right? Wrong.

 

Here is why a DryPro cast cover is different than other cast covers:

DryPro is made of a durable high quality surgical latex

Most other covers are made of plastic

DryPro can last up to months while using it daily in pools, showers, etc.

Other covers last up to a few washes in the shower and maybe the pool

DryPro is easy to use and seals within seconds

Other covers can become frustrating or messy  

With a DryPro, you always know it is keeping the cast dry

With other covers, you are constantly worrying and checking

 

And why it is better than a waterproof cast:

DryPro can be used for all kinds of breaks

Waterproof casts can only be used for certain kind of breaks

With a DryPro, you never have to wait for it to dry because the cast never gets wet

With waterproof casts, you must wait an hour or more for it to dry and leak out  

DryPro never affects the cast no matter how many times you use it

After getting waterproof casts wet many times, it can lose thickness and shape, which causes the cast to become unstable and a longer healing process

DryPro costs between $36-$40 dollars

Waterproof casts cost $40-$50 more than a regular casts and most are not     recommended by doctors

DryPro allows you to go to the beach still

Doctors recommend not going to the beach with a waterproof cast because the sand can cause irritation

 

Now you might say: “Well Drypro does not eliminate odors and relieve itching like a waterproof cast.”, right? Actually, DryPro has a product called Cast Relief that does all of that while lasting up to 72 hours and being scent free. It only cost $19.99, and you could get a $5 off coupon.

 

Economically and resourcefully, DryPro is the better option. Get yours today, and tell us what you think! Post your pictures and reviews on our Facebook!

What is a Picc Line Cover?

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.

 

Some of the main risks people have to worry most about with a PICC lines is:

  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Line getting clogged
  • Inflammation of the veins
  • Line coming out or moving

 

This means people with a PICC line have to stress about this:

  • Not getting it wet
  • Routine sterile dressing changes
  • Flushing the line with sterile fluid
  • Changing tubes and caps regularly
  • Cleaning hands constantly

 

DryPro cannot stop you from worrying and stressing about all of these, but we can help minimize them. With the DryPro PICC line cover, you are free to take showers and baths. You can even go swimming in the ocean, pool, or lake. You no longer have to worry about getting your PICC line wet.

Not only does this help people with a PICC line, but it is also extremely easy to use unlike plastic wrap and duct tape. All you have to do is slide it on over the line and use the pump to pump out the air. It seals in seconds! The DryPro cover also is a nude color and is open ended to keep your hands free. The material is durable and latex free.

Broken Leg Care

Broken Leg Care

 

Breaking a leg is stressful- it’s painful, you have limited mobility, and casts are uncomfortable. Here are a few tips to help you recover from a broken leg as quickly as possible.

Get lots of rest: While this may sound obvious, your body heals more quickly while you are sleeping.  Mending a bone takes a lot of energy out of you, so make sure to take it easy and get plenty of sleep!

Wiggle your toes: It might sound silly, but wiggling your toes can have some big benefits for you.  By wigging your toes whenever you think of it, you are keeping your blood flowing as well as preventing as much stiffness in the joints in your toes, foot and ankle.  Curling and stretching your toes is a great way to prevent stiffness as well.

Don’t stick anything down your cast: Although it might be tempting, sticking objects down your cast to relieve the itch can have consequences.  By using sharp objects to relieve the itch, you could potentially scratch yourself and cause an infection.  There is also the chance that a piece of the object will break off or get stuck, causing discomfort and irritation.  DryPRO’s Cast Relief Spray helps relieve itching and odor without the risk of infection.

Keep your leg elevated and iced: By keeping your leg elevated, excess fluids are drained out of the limb, keeping it from getting swollen and painful.  Use pillows or a chair to prop your leg up. Icing your leg while elevated will also help ease swelling.  Place ice in a plastic bag and loosely wrap it around the cast.  Ridged ice packs will not be very effective as they only cover a small area.

Eat the right foods: According to the Andrews Institute, food such as non-fat yogurt, almonds, and leafy greens will help speed up your recover time, along with other foods high in calcium.  Foods that are high in sodium or sugar should be avoided, along with alcohol and excessive caffeine.

Don’t get your cast wet: One of the most commonly known rules of cast-care, getting your cast wet could compromise the quality of the cast as well as encourage mold and mildew to grow.  Luckily, DryPRO has you covered with our waterproof cast covers so you can shower and swim worry free!
