How to deal with Radial Artery Hemostat after transradial artery puncture?

The Radial Artery Hemostat is generally decompressed and released every 2 hours, and usually can be removed 6 hours after usage. Some patients experience bleeding or hematoma after decompression of the Radial Artery Hemostat and need to increase or recompress the hemostatic device. A small number of patients still have bleeding when the Radial Artery Hemostat is removed 6 hours later, and a gauze block can be placed under the hemostatic device to compress the bleeding. The pressure does not need to be too large, and the bleeding can be stopped after 20 to 30 minutes. When the hands feel severe swelling, a doctor or nurse should check for hematoma. If there is no hematoma, the pressure of the hemostatic device can be appropriately reduced. Patients can also move their fingers more while ensuring that the hemostatic device does not shift, or perform hand massage to promote the blood circulation.
