All of our dialysis and chemotherapy long sleeve t-shirts are customized to fit each patient with the following variations : Style #1A, Size, Color, left or right arm for snaps. We worked with a dialysis social worker to get the perfect garment that can be worn anywhere. The unique adaptive and comfortable device we use by sewing snaps from the neck, across the shoulder, down the center of the sleeve and cuff totally hidden. The nurses and techs have easy access up and down the arm unsnapping the 2" snaps where needed. Ports, fistulas, pic lines, catheters, infusion etc. are flexible in any area. The social worker was so excited that our 100% Ultra Cotton features the long sleeve for warmth plus the "built-in-life-saving feature" where the tubes are inserted between 2 closed snaps at the top of the shoulder to secure them for the entire 4 hours of treatment.

Immobilé

Immobilé

When it comes to securing PD transfer sets, simple is still best. Immobilé is one of the most innovative ways to secure PD transfer sets on the market. It remains the preferred choice for thousands of patients in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. A patented combination of hypoallergenic adhesive together with a Velcro hook-and-loop tab makes Immobilé cost effective, body trim, and very easy to use.

Immobilé was developed from patient requests for a device that not only secured the transfer set but that secured it in such a way as to allow normal active body movement (such as biking or skiing) without concern for the integrity of the set or access. Patients also wanted to eliminate the sticky step of pulling tape off the transfer set three or four times a day when releasing it for an exchange. When care is taken one Immobilé can be used for three days (up to 12 exchanges).

Many people prefer Immobilé to a belt because it is much more body trim, easier to use and yet, very effective.

Immobilé is:

  • Easier and more cost effective than tape alone
  • More body trim and less bulky than the belt
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Sterile product
  • Available direct or through major distributors’ ancillary catalogs or formularies

T-Shirt Style #1A Long Sleeve Dialysis Clothing with Snaps

T-Shirt Style #1A Long Sleeve Dialysis Clothing with Snaps 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.

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze quickly controls and stops bleeding. INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is made from cotton, and is 100% plant-based with no animal products, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction or irritation. The 2x2 gauze pad is designed for dialysis patients, as it controls the bleeding quickly and easily.

When INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze is applied to a bleeding surface or wound with slight direct pressure, and comes in contact with blood, the blood is instantly absorbed. As the blood is absorbed, and INSTA-STOP expands, it blocks the end of the blood capillary from the injury, which controls and stops bleeding and protects the wound.

INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is ideal for patients who are taking anti-coagulation medication, patients taking medication with anti-coagulation side effects, and for patients with blood coagulation disorders and reduction in blood platelets.

Features and benefits:

  • Simple to use—just simply place it on a bleeding wound
  • Adheres to the wound and reduces re-bleeding
  • Allow use of both hands to complete bandaging
  • Chemical-free, no prescription needed
  • Safe for human use and the environment

INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze products are over-the-counter and have a 3-year shelf life (until opened). For more information, or to purchase INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze, please call or email us at the numbers below.

Parker Anderson, Inc., designs, develops, patents, markets and sells Hemostatic Gauze products within the INSTA-STOP® brand family.

CELOX Hemostatic Products

CELOX Hemostatic Products CELOX Hemostatic Products CELOX Hemostatic Products

FDA-Approved CELOX [CELL-ox] Products are redefining effective bleeding management. Bleeding has been stopped in much the same way it has been since the turn of the last century – until now. CELOX Granules, Gauze and Dressing are invaluable, potentially life-saving products that provide rapid, efficient hemostasis for men, women, children and seniors.

CELOX provides a range of hemostatic products to control bleeding from and around central venous catheter, fistula, and graft access sites. CELOX performance has been proven on the battlefield, in emergency and clinical settings, and in the laboratory.

CELOX is the only hemostat proven to rapidly stop bleeding even when blood and its ability to clot is compromised by use of anti-coagulant blood thinners like Coumadin, Warfarin, Plavix, Pradaxa or Xarelto. CELOX doesn't sting or burn and easily irrigates with water or saline.

CELOX products are not new. CELOX was created for use on military battlefields to stop severe bleeding in its tracks – in most cases instantaneously – even in extreme circumstances or challenging conditions. Now the same FDA-approved, military-strength, hospital-grade products are available for use in non-military markets – without a prescription. CELOX is classified by the FDA as an OTC medical device, not a pharmaceutical.

  • In the history of its use, there have been no reports of CELOX having failed or underperformed
  • CELOX – FDA /Health Canada/NATO approved & prestigious Class 3CE mark in Europe
  • Classified by FDA as an OTC medical device, not a pharmaceutical – for nosebleeds and minor, moderate and severe bleeding [not yet available in retail stores]
  • Only product proven to quickly stop bleeding for those on blood thinners like Coumadin, Warfarin, Heparin, Plavix, Pradaxa or Xarelto
  • Each product designed to be easily self-administered and used by those with no emergency or medical training
  • Cannot be over-used – No measuring or "dosing" needed
  • Reduces risk related to spread of blood-borne pathogens
  • Works for those with inherited or acquired bleeding or clotting disorders [like Hemophilia]
  • Does not sting, burn or generate heat
  • Easily washes away with water or saline – no debridement necessary
  • Because it is bio-compatible, remaining CELOX granules are safely absorbed

Theraworx™

Theraworx is an all-natural solution designed to cleanse and nourish the skin. The skin-healthy formula lasts for hours after skin application, providing long-lasting moisture and protection.

This allows us to provide a product free of chemicals and alcohols so often used to prevent bacterial growth. Each ingredient is added in clinically significant amounts to assure function, not simply to look good on the label.

VitalRenew™

VitalRenew™

VitalRenew™ is an anti-aging formula designed to support healthy mitochondrial function, protect cells against free radical damage, and provide increased energy.

L-carnitine is an amino acid-derived compound necessary for transport of long chain fatty acids as fuel into the mitochondria. L-carnitine’s central role in muscle function has drawn the attention of clinicians and researchers to clinical applications related to this role and its ability to increase energy. Studies have found feeding older animals L-carnitine results in a return of liver and heart mitochondria to a more youthful state.

Alpha lipoic acid is a highly effective nutritional antioxidant in bolstering cellular and tissue levels of glutathione. As dihydrolipoic acid, alpha lipoic acid is one of very few antioxidant molecules small enough to penetrate the mitochondria directly and protect against age-related mitochondrial decay.

CoQ10 is an antioxidant and is essential for the conversion of the food we eat into energy. Organs that have tremendous energy requirements such as the brain, heart and kidneys, possess much greater numbers of the energy-producing mitochondria and thus need more CoQ10. With age, the level of CoQ10 has been found to decrease, affecting the body’s energy production.

Resveratrol, a polyphenol present in red wine, has been thought to be responsible for the cardiovascular benefits associated with moderate wine consumption. New research suggests that by regulating a gene associated with aging, resveratrol could promote longevity.

Medical Dignity Garment

Medical Dignity Garment

Medical Dignity Clothing has been created to offer comfort, modesty, and convenience to anyone who is going through dialysis, chemotherapy, or other infusion treatments.

The Medical Dignity Garment is a classic, white, button-down shirt with flaps and break-away sleeves designed to open directly over the areas that a port or central line would commonly be placed. Since most infusion treatments are administered in a common room with very little to no privacy, it eliminates the concern of the patient being exposed during treatment.

The Medical Dignity Garment is available in sizes for men, women, and children, and can be ordered online or over the phone.

PD Panty/PD Brief

PD Panty/PD Brief PD Panty/PD Brief

The PD Panty comes in two styles: day and night.

The "day" version has of a pocket for the port at the end of the transfer set tubing to rest in that is just below the waist band on the inside of the garment.  A "guide" that is open at both ends serves as a guide for the transfer set tubing to "thread" through and rest in the pocket above the guide in the inside of the panty. This protects the exit site from being injured by pulling of the tubing, as well as keeps the transfer set tubing from dangling.

When wearing the PD Panty, the port and transfer set tubing is not visible from the outside of the under garment. The panty provides safety, comfort, convenience, and a sanitary means of caring for the exit site. Made of cotton and cotton blends, the panty can be washed and cleaned with regular laundry detergent. Available in sizes from small to XX large.

The "night" version consists of the pocket on the outside and guide on the inside. The additional feature of the PD Panty "night" is that the garment has a button hole on the side of the garment between the guide and the pocket to allow the transfer set tubing to thread through the guide and come out to the outside of the garment through the button hole. The port again rests in the pocket on the outside of the garment. The garment is called the PD Panty "night" because the button hole allows the patient to connect to the Cycler without having to pull the underwear off or pull the underwear down. The guide protects the connection as the patient dialyzes and or sleeps. The PD Panty "night" can be worn at any time.
