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.

Theraworx™

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. Containing no alcohols, it leaves your skin soft and comfortable rather than cracked and dry. Patented in 2002, this product has blossomed into a full line of skin-healthy products safe for the entire family, but strong enough for the clinician.

Theraworx is a skin-healthy solution to cleanse, moisturize, and protect your skin. The science behind the magic is multi-factorial and was designed over a period of years. First created by a dermatologist a decade ago, it has undergone a creation of its own. With ingredients included by category to perform numerous tasks, its base solution can be safely manipulated to become an entire line of products dedicated to meet the needs of the times.

Each ingredient is critical along with the methods used to provide a stable, reliable product. Theraworx is distributed only after undergoing a unique treatment process. 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.

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.

Redsense Blood Detector

Redsense Blood Detector

The Redsense safety device is designed to detect venous needle dislodgement during hemodialysis, for Home/Self and Clinical use.

Redsense consists of two parts: a sensor patch and an alarm unit. An infrared signal is transmitted from the alarm unit to the sensor patch using fibre optic cable. In the event of bleeding, inner layers of the patch smear blood over the optical sensor, which triggers the alarm.

The Redsense safety device is the results of close co-operation between medical staff and engineers. Dialysis equipment today is required to have a system which protects the patient from blood loss due to dislodgement of the venous needle. The commonly accepted solution is to monitor by the venous pressure alarm but a better solution has long been requested. Even with the routine supervision of medical staff still the venous needle can become dislodged: the dialysis machine will then continue to draw blood from the patient’s artery however not returning blood in the loop circuit as the venous needle has become dislodged and the patient’s blood ends up elsewhere. If undetected, this blood loss can have very serious consequences in only a few minutes. Redsense safety device provides a solution to this problem and detects venous needle dislodgement instantaneously; it only takes a few milliliters of blood on the sensor patch to sound the alarm.

Optimizing safety conditions for home hemodialysis users is a core ambition for Redsense Medical.

Redsense Medical has offices in Sweden and in the U.S. (Chicago, IL). For more information: www.redsensemedical.com.

VitalOils1000™

VitalOils1000™

Numerous studies associate a diet rich in Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) with multiple health benefits, especially better cardiovascular health. In fact, the FDA permits the following qualified health claim: "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA + DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease." Because of increased evidence for the cardiovascular benefits of fish oils, the American Heart Association recommends that those with heart disease consume 1000 mg (1 gram) of EPA+DHA per day. For patients who need to lower triglycerides, they recommend 2 to 4 grams of EPA+DHA per day provided as capsules under a physician’s care.

VitalOils1000™ is the first and only omega-3 fish oil product with a full 1,000 mg of DHA + EPA in a single enteric coated soft gel. The DHA to EPA ratio is 3:1 in order to provide us with what we typically get in eating healthful fish, such as salmon. It is enteric coated for enhanced absorption and easier digestion; those who experience upset stomach and nausea with fish oil supplements should find VitalOils1000 easy to digest and free from the fishy aftertaste. Individually sealed for freshness and purity, VitalOils1000 is molecular and fractionally distilled to remove mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, dioxins, furans, and other heavy metals and toxins. Rosemary extract and vitamin C are added for antioxidant protection.
