Quote of the Day: "Survival can be summed up in three words - never give up. That's the heart of it really. Just keep trying." - Bear Grylls
Many Chronic Kidney Disease Patients (CKD) who receive or may at any point in time need to receive hemodialysis through a fistula, must protect the veins in their arm. If your arm is stuck with a needle incorrectly or a blood pressure cuff is applied then you may damage your veins and make it difficult to create and near impossible to maintain a fistula.
AV Fistula errors are on the rise. The Fistula Protector Wristbands are nationally recognized dialysis arm PROTECTORS to keep patients with a Fistula or Graft safe during an emergency that they cannot speak for themselves to let EMTs know not to use Blood Pressure Cuffs or IV Needles on their delicate Fistulas or Grafts.
Yes, these do come in sizes small to extra-large. Just indicate your preferred size at checkout.
Five bands will last the entire year and provide dialysis patients with protection and peace of mind. This is not a luxury item. It really is a must-have in today's fast paced medical environment where accidents and mistakes are on the rise. We know the last thing that a dialysis patient wants is yet another issue, like fistula damage or failure, to have to deal with. Get protected today!
