The G-SLEEVE® is an innovative safety device specifically designed to eliminate the risk of
potential injury when treating mastectomy, lumpectomy with lymph node removal and
The main purpose of the G-SLEEVE® is to protect the “affected arm” of the patient by alerting all nurses and medical staff of the potential severe risk of injury that may occur from unwanted blood pressures, intravenous access, and blood draws.
The G-SLEEVE® was designed by Gina M. Santosuosso, RN, BSN, to protect patients by preventing medical errors that may easily occur in any hospital or outpatient setting.
When taking blood pressure, administering an IV or taking blood draws when treating mastectomy, lumpectomy with lymph node removal and dialysis patients, it is sometimes advised not to use the “affected arm" to reduce the risk of injury that may possibly lead to more severe conditions such as lymphedema.
