Protech International is proud to be a distributor for IV Glove.
The IV Glove is an FDA-registered anti-bacterial, anti-microbial silicone glove that attaches to a patient's hand to secure IVs.
It features a transparent protective shield allowing medical personnel to inspect IVs without patient disruption, and IV Glove's patented S-clip mechanism secures the IV tubes preventing movement.
The reality of IV use:
- 90% of hospital patients receive an IV
- 66% safety risk due to stabilization issues
- 50% failure rate with existing IV practices
- Average of 6-20 minutes to replace an IV
IV Glove is the Solution
Dislodgement is one of the most prevalent issues with existing IV practices and can be caused by a patient's movement, accidental impact, or linear strain, and can lead to additional health complications such as infiltration and phlebitis.
The IV Glove addresses these stabilization issues by safely and comfortably securing the peripheral IV catheter (PIVC) and its tubing to the patient's arm. IV glove comes in multiple sizes making it ideal for patients of all ages.
