T-shirts for PD patients
At last! A way to stabilize the catheter all day and night. Our products can be worn during the day as undergarments, or at night to protect the catheter during sleep. We have regular t-shirts, men’s tank-tops, and women’s spaghetti-strap camisoles in a variety of sizes and made from pre-shrunk cotton. We also offer a shower caddy to protect the catheter while showering. The caddy is made from cotton with a nylon pocket.
To wear, push the catheter through the buttonhole into the pocket and velcro in place. For sleeping, push the catheter through the buttonhole into the pocket, connect the catheter to the machine, loop the hose, and velcro into place to prevent tangling during sleep.
T-Shirt Style #1A Long Sleeve Dialysis Clothing with Snaps
Our newest Style 1A has been designed for "Kidney Dialysis Treatment" and for the hemo/peritoneal/dialysis patient taking 4 hour treatments three times per week using a newly designed long sleeve t-shirt for added warmth and comfort with the 100% cotton t-shirt. – Our Style is also utilized with a safety feature that other comparable shirts do not have. Our hidden snaps from neck, across shoulder, sleeve and cuff provide easy access for nurses to start the procedure. The tubes are inserted between two closed snaps in upper arm and are secured during the entire 4 hr. treatment process. SUPER FEATURE!!! This also provides the techs/nurses from running from patient to patient checking approval that blood flow is normal. The unused snaps are closed in areas for warmth.
Finished product is a long or short sleeve, 100% Cotton t-shirt customized for the patient and caregiver. We created the product at the request of a Dialysis Social Worker trying to help his patients. He requested one of my long sleeve T-Shirts to assist the patients for warmth and discovered that our T-Shirts have a "built-in-life-saving-feature" that others don't have. Using two of the upper arm 2" closed snaps the nurses/techs were able to insert the tubes between them and stay secured the entire 4 hr. treatment session.
