Good helper for nursing work  --   Radial Artery Hemostat

Arterial blood analysis can provide many important references for clinical treatment, and provide many effective diagnosis and treatment basis for respiratory system, circulatory system and metabolic diseases. Common blood sampling sites for blood analysis include radial artery, brachial artery, femoral artery, dorsal foot artery, etc. Among them, the radial artery has the advantages of superficial location, easy-to-touch pulsation, and easy acceptance by patients, so nurses often choose the radial artery for puncture and blood collection.

However, we found through interviews that after clinical radial artery puncture, medical tape is used to stick a cotton ball or cotton swab to stop the bleeding. This is not only insufficient for arterial blood collection, but also often does not meet the standard time.

Since improper pressing of the puncture point often leads to many complications, the common ones are bleeding and the formation of subcutaneous hematomas. Theoretically, it is required that local sterile gauze should be applied to stop bleeding for 5-10 minutes after arterial blood sampling. In unaccompanied wards, it is more common for nurses to press the local area with their hands until there is no bleeding from the puncture point, and then use medical tape to stick cotton balls. Cover the puncture point to stop bleeding. In fact, this kind of operation lacks strong support, and the hemostatic effect is not good. Once the puncture site has hemorrhage, subcutaneous hematoma or pseudoaneurysm formation, periosteal compartment syndrome. This is not just a problem of improper pressing, it reflects the flawed side of nursing work and makes high-quality nursing services fall short.

At present, the nursing appliances of the same purpose are mainly radial artery hemostats that are often used in many operating rooms and intervention rooms. It is composed of a plastic box cloth belt and is a disposable appliance, which is mainly used to compress the patient's radial artery puncture site after percutaneous intervention to stop bleeding. Compared with the use of clinical arterial puncture, the cost is higher. And the operation requires two medical staff to complete together, there are a total of 6 steps to complete the use. Therefore, it is not suitable for hemostasis after radial artery puncture.

In view of the above problems, we have developed this new type of nursing appliance. Instead of a nurse taking blood from the radial artery, local pressure is saved, which not only saves nursing human resources, but also avoids continued bleeding at the puncture site.
