Children account for approximately six percent of the overall US patient population; however they make up 15 percent of the national central line complication mortality rate. CareAline sleeves and wraps tunnel lines between two layers of fabric and then wrap around the arm/body of the patient securing the lines safely. The unique two layered design keeps the patient and the line itself protected from external risks, while keeping the patient comfortable, and providing privacy and camouflage.
