In recent years hemorrhage control has become one of the highest priorities in patient care, and until now the only solutions for pre-hospital hemorrhage control have been direct pressure, hemostatic agents and tourniquets. These solutions require considerable training and practice to develop and maintain proficiency. Moreover, their success with difficult to control hemorrhage is highly user dependent and often resource intensive. What is needed to effectively manage hemorrhage is a tool that can be applied by minimally trained personnel in seconds with a high success rate and low pain to patients.

The iTClamp® controls bleeding in compressible zones (such as the scalp, neck, extremities, axilla and groin) by sealing the wound closed over the bleeding source. Backpressure from the hematoma creates a zone of stasis to allow a clot to form and stabilize the patient until definitive repair. The device controls bleeding in compressible areas in less than five seconds and fits seamlessly into current protocols. It substantially reduces the time and resource requirements of managing hemorrhage pre-hospital and in the emergency department, taking the emergency out of hemorrhage control.

The iTClamp has been proven effective in standard live tissue hemorrhage models as well as in cadaveric hemorrhage models however the core proof of any device is the effectiveness in humans.1,2 In the following pages you will see and read about real-world uses of the iTClamp to control hemorrhage throughout the compressible zones, including the junctions (groin and axilla), neck, scalp and extremities.

I am sure these cases will illustrate to you how significant a solution the iTClamp is and how well it will address difficult to control hemorrhage in your patient care setting.
