About the iTClamp®

About the iTClamp®

The iTClamp® is a hemorrhage control device for use in the extremities axilla, inguinal, scalp, and neck. The device seals the edges of a wound closed to mitigate further blood loss until the wound can be surgically repaired. Research studies show the iTClamp to be superior to wound packing in terms of patient survival, survival time, and total blood loss. Applied in seconds with minimal pain to the patient, the iTClamp is ideal for emergency medical personnel.

Incorporated in 2010 and based in Edmonton, Canada with its global commercialization headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, iTraumaCare is addressing unmet needs in the field of emergency medicine by developing, manufacturing, and commercializing solutions to treat common causes of preventable death in traumatic injury scenarios.

iTClamp Case Studies

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.

In recent years hemorrhage control has become on of the highest priorities in patient care, and until now the only solutions for pre-hospital hemorrhage control have been direct pressurem hemostatic agents and tourniquets. These solutions require considerable training and practice to develop and maintain proficieny. 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 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. 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.
