RADIAL / Hemostatic Device


Radial is a device for medical use developed to control bleeding from the radial artery after cardiac catheterization or angioplasty. It replaces the exhaustive method of manual compression, task that takes at least thirty minutes and produces muscle fatigue in the arm of the health professional. It presents differentials, like the simplicity of its use, possibility of measuring the degree of compression and visualization of small bleedings. It is completely portable and uses materials compatible with the sterilization process, so it can be reprocessed and reused, fact that impacts on ecological and economic advantages over competitors.
