When creating IV Hoody, it was important to create a product that allowed any medical staff easy access to a patient’s entire arm. Typically, a patient would have to roll up their sleeves, or even remove clothing that would otherwise obstruct the point of access. This can be difficult if the patient is elderly, disabled, in pain, or uncomfortable. 

When receiving an infusion, a common area to access are the veins in an arm above the elbow and below the shoulder. This is called the PICC line (peripherally inserted central catheter). These veins offer the quickest way for vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed by the entire body, bypassing the stomach, kidneys, and liver making this extremely valuable for anyone needing immediate nutrients. 



Typical intravenous (IV) therapies administered through a PICC include:


• Antibiotics

• Total parenteral nutrition (vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, proteins, carbohydrates, etc.)

• Blood products

• Immunoglobulins

• Chemotherapy



IV Hoody’s  Full Arm Access means complete access from the top of the shoulder all the way down to the palm. This makes receiving an infusion easy for the patients and efficient for the medical staff member. 

If you or a loved one are going through or will go through infusion treatments of any kind, we’d recommend wearing an IV Hoody during your next session. Not only will you be more comfortable, but your infusion experience will be easier, warmer, and more comfortable.
