Description

Description: Handmade vest designed for babies and young children who have a central line (also known as a hickman or brodiac line).

The pocket opening is secured with hook and loop fastening to make it more difficult for your child to gain access to their lines and pull them.

What is a Hickman Line?
A Hickman line is a long thin tube made out of silicone. It is inserted so that one end lies in a large vein in the chest, with the other end lying outside of the body. A portion of the line, between the two ends, is tunnelled under the skin of the upper chest. It has a cuff attached to it, which ultimately anchors the line in place and acts as a barrier to infection from the outside.
A single line can contain 1, 2 or 3 separate internal channels, each of which has an opening inside and outside the body. These provide a route for taking blood samples and giving intravenous (i.e. directly into a vein) treatment, and avoids the need to repeatedly puncture veins in the arms for this purpose. A clamp, and a connector to which a bung is attached, protect each of the openings on the outside of the body.
