Protecting PICC Lines
Made in the U.S.A.
PICC Guard is proudly developed and manufactured in the U.S.A. We have never wavered in our pledge to produce a superior, safe product right here in America.
About PICC Guard
Some of our most vulnerable patients are those who require PICC lines. Appropriate options for outpatient post-acute care have long been limited for those at risk of PICC line tampering. The result has often been costly inpatient stays to monitor treatment and compliance.
PICC Guard introduces a new option for healthcare providers previously reluctant to deviate from directly observed care: the first FDA cleared medical device that resists unwarranted access to PICC lines. Providers can now protect patient safety and improve medical outcomes while reducing healthcare costs and inpatient stays. With PICC Guard, patients previously prevented from transitioning out of inpatient care can successfully be monitored on an outpatient basis.
At PICC Guard, we believe in transforming lives through medical innovation. Our co-founders are seasoned healthcare professionals who emphasize accountability, quality, and improving the communities where we live and work. Committing to protecting our communities means creating solutions to help the most vulnerable among us. PICC Guard embodies this commitment by advancing a powerful new medical device.

How it Works
How it Works
By placing a PICC Guard over the end of a PICC line, a health care provider can monitor and detect whether or not a patient has tampered with their central line. With this one-way tamper-evident locking mechanism, this robust device cannot be removed without being destroyed.
Who is it For?
Any patient who is at risk for tampering with their PICC line. Possible indications may include:
IV Drug Use (IVDU)
Patients with a history of IVDU have high infection rates and are at risk to access their intravenous lines.
Adverse outcomes can be lessened among patients who may lack insight regarding their medical devices.
Patients in jail or prison may attempt to access their lines. PICC Guards can improve treatment outcomes in this patient population.
Pediatric patients may tamper with venous access lines accidentally. PICC Guard placement over the port may decrease infection rates or air emboli.
