Another approach to hemorrhage control
is centered on providing substrate for clot formation.
- Canadian medical device company iTraumaCare has launched the newest iteration of its iTClamp Hemorrhage Control
System, the company said on Wednesday.
Kalkwarf et al (19) used an electrosurgery instrument to produce "fulgurate on-type'" sparks during a study of hemorrhage control
procedures, Electrosurgery fulguration provided hemorrhage control
for an abraded oral wound in a mean of 13.5 + 5.0 s.Pressure with a dampened gauze required 79.9 [+ or -] 64.1 s to produce the same results.
Recommendations by CoTCCC for care during evacuation involved reevaluation of the patient with hemorrhage control
remaining the highest priority, followed by an airway intervention only when absolutely necessary, and decompression of a tension pneumothorax if detected.
This is significant because similar devices designed to treat PPH require from ten to 24 hours to reach full hemorrhage control
Comparison of hemorrhage control
agents applied to lethal extremity arterial hemorrhages in swine.
(1-3) Hemorrhage control
and resuscitation are the top priorities in trauma care.
Improving survival at all echelons of care in these patients requires hemorrhage control
and resuscitation to restore normal blood clotting capabilities and metabolic processes, while providing volume.
(4,5) Tissue trauma and hypovolemic shock caused by significant blood loss are additional risk factors that can lead to acute coagulopathy, making hemorrhage control
and resuscitation therapy more difficult even after patients arrive at the hospitals.
