Our home health nurses and nurses in the hospital constantly RAVE about how convenient and protective this wrap is for any patient with a central line. I would recommend this to anyone that has a child with a central line, especially a Broviac.
Prior to GusGear my daughter had many issues with broken lines, lost claves, loose dressings. It was a nightmare trying to keep her line safe and we were always worried about infection. Since wearing the vest we have had no broken lines and we have peace of mind and security. She has the opportunity to be a kid again! Everyone with a central line should have one!
Our daughter had to have a central line placed about 8 months ago when she was 16 months old. This was all new to myself and husband. We had no clue all the care that goes into having a central line. We were introduced to Gus Gear through the local Children’s Hospital. All I can say is what a lifesaver the central line vest is. It has given us piece of mind that her line is protected and her line is secure. We have not had one issue with her line breaking her needing repair. She loves her vest and calls her central line “her tubies”. Nothing but great things about this product and the care and detail that has gone into making the product. Anyone that has a central should invest in the vest- it truly is a lifesaver!
My daughter has worn the vest since we found it a year after she got her central line. We tried a different brand but it did not work well and she ended up needing a line repair with it. Since using the vest though she hasn’t had any issues. I love that the updated vest closes on the sides and how I can remove it mid infusion if need be. It is very adjustable providing a good fit and closes on the side so no more Velcro rubbing on the back of her shirt. In fact, no Velcro rubbing anywhere. On top of that the material is a little thicker but more breathable. I like the slightly thicker option as I usually pin her g tube extension to the wrap with a diaper pin after tabbing the tape and with this material it holds up very well, no pin holes wearing into it and I don’t have to worry about going through to her central line (very anal about that so it has never happened). I truly love this updated vest!
After having a line break in the hospital, we realized we needed better protection for our then six-month-old’s central line. The central line wrap protects her line from breaking and it also protects the Broviac dressing. We had been doing bi-weekly dressing changes because the dressing kept falling off, but since we started using the wrap, we are back to a weekly dressing change schedule.
Having used the wraps every single day for over four years, we have experienced firsthand how they keep our little one’s line safe. Even when she is connected to her backpack, she plays chase with her sisters, jumps on the trampoline, and goes to gymnastics class without fear of pulling or breaking her central line. In our four and a half years using Gus Gear, we’ve never had to replace the line because of any line trauma.
Everyone should use Gus Gear’s central line wrap! We cannot imagine life without it!
