How to properly use radial artery hemostat

Because blood is a very important part of the human body, various things have been vigorously studied in medicine for hemostasis, such as hemostatic drugs, hemostatic agents and hemostatic devices, so do you know how to use the radial artery hemostat?

(1) Preparation
1. Check the tightness of the paper-plastic bag, disassemble it after confirming the sealing, and check the performance of the radial artery hemostat.
2. The operator and assistant wear clean medical gloves.
3. Use a syringe to inject an appropriate amount of air through the balloon tube to inflate the balloon. Generally, the injection volume is 6ml, and the maximum is not more than 8ml.

(2) Operation
1. Make preparations for clinical sheath removal. Align the center of the balloon at the puncture point and place it 0.5cm above the puncture point, and then wrap the movable end of the fixation band around the wrist and pass through the other side of the fixation plate. The fastener hole is tightened and glued;
2. After pulling out half of the sheath slowly, rotate the adjusting screw to make the balloon appropriately compress the radial artery puncture point;

3. Pull out the sheath completely while pressing the pressure plate to determine whether the puncture point is bleeding. If bleeding is observed, tighten the adjusting screw. If the skin color is abnormal and the arterial pulsation is poor, turn the adjusting screw in the opposite direction to reduce pressure.

4. According to the patient's personal situation and the size of the puncture point, the compression depth and compression time of the adjusting screw can be different. The details should be determined by the medical staff according to the specific situation, and the hemostatic status should be confirmed regularly during the hemostasis process.

5. After the hemostasis process is over, loosen the fixation belt, take off the hemostatic device after confirming that there is no bleeding, and disinfect the puncture point with an alcohol cotton ball, and then put on the infusion patch (band patch). Note that after relaxing the fixation band, in order to prevent rebleeding, the patient should be instructed to avoid bending the wrist on the puncture side as much as possible within a certain period of time.
