Keep tubing and catheters safe and secure with Neotech’s innovative Hold-A-Line. Made with a gentle NeoBond Hydrocolloid base, this product is skin friendly and ideal for infants with sensitive skin. With its secure fold-over flap, Hold-A-Line keeps tubing in place while relieving pressure on catheters. The unique U-shape means less irritation for protruding umbilical stumps, and the holder can open and close repeatedly. With its clear flap, Hold-A-Line also allows for continued visibility of tubing.
After catheter or tube is in place, clean and dry skin per hospital protocol.
Note: It is important for skin to be as clean and dry as possible. Hold-A-Line will not adhere properly to moist skin or hair. Oils and lotions will also adversely affect adhesion.
DO NOT USE ALCOHOL.
Step 1 Before removing plastic liner, hydrocolloid adhesive must be actively warmed. Warming techniques include: hold between the palms of your hands for at least 60 seconds, hold near a radiant warmer for 10-15 seconds, or hold against a chemical heel warmer for 10-15 seconds.
Step 2 Discard white, paper liner, then peel and discard clear, plastic liner from hydrocolloid base.
Step 3 Apply base to skin and hold in place for 60 seconds to ensure proper adhesion.
Step 4 Peel and discard frosted liner and adhere catheter or tube to base.
Step 5 Fold flap over catheter or tube, align with base and press firmly together, enclosing catheter or tube between adhesives.
Step 6 Lift flap as needed to reposition or remove catheter or tube.
Step 1 Replace Hold-A-Line every 5 days or per hospital protocol, whichever is sooner.
Step 2 Lift flap to remove catheter or tube.
Step 3 Saturate Hold-A-Line with water or saline.
Step 4 Slowly peel Hold-A-Line away from skin as you swab the skin with water or saline.
