PROVEN HANDS-FREE COMPRESSION OFFERS PRECISE, EFFICIENT HEMOSTASIS

The FemoStop™ II Plus compression assist device offers precise, effective hemostasis management using hands-free compression of the femoral artery after diagnostic or therapeutic catheterization1. Because the inflatable dome allows for accurate initial placement and offers precise pressure, the FemoStop™ II Plus sustains blood flow to the distal extremity for improved patient comfort compared to manual compression.

Bilateral Adapter
FemoStop™ II Plus only
Enables simultaneous compression of two vessels

PROVEN FEMORAL COMPRESSION SYSTEM

Offers Precise Placement and Control
  • Precision-controlled manometer allows continuous, measurable pressure which can be adjusted based on patient status.
  • Inflatable, transparent dome offers precise pressure for improved patient comfort compared to manual compression.
Improves Staff Efficiency and Safety
  • Hands-free compression allows multiple patients to be monitored at one time, increasing staff efficiency.
  • The adjustable belt fits securely so that small patient movements may not cause the device to slip.
  • Hands-free compression minimizes staff exposure to blood and reduces neck, arm and wrist fatigue.
  • The device arch and manometer are easily cleaned and reusable, saving product and packaging materials.
Compression Time Example2

Abbott is committed to putting more control into hands of physicians. The FemoStop™ II Plus Compression Assist Device uses hands-free compression of the femoral artery to offer precise hemostasis management and improved patient comfort compared to manual compression.

Deployment: FemoStop™ II Plus

  1. Position belt in line with puncture site(s), equal on both sides.
  2. Attach dome. Peel back lid, keeping the dome sterile.
  3. Center dome over arterial puncture (superior and medial to skin incision). Keep sheath hubs clear of dome rim.
  4. Attach belt to arch and fit snug. Ensure arch is level and square across the groin area. Adjust by pulling on appropriate corner of belt to make arch perpendicular to femoral compression site.
  5. Attach manometer and tubing.
  6. Inflate dome to 20-30 mmHg; then remove venous sheath* (if applicable).
  7. Further inflate to 60-80 mmHg and remove arterial sheath (if applicable). Then quickly increase pressure in dome to be +10-20 mmHg greater than systolic BP or higher as necessary to maintain initial hemostasis.
  8. After 3 minutes maximum; lower to a maintenance pressure until limb profusion is restored to baseline and hemostasis is maintained. Check pedal pulse periodically to confirm whether or not flow remains in vessel. After appropriate duration as defined by hospital guidelines; lower by 10-20 mmHg every few minutes until you reach zero. Leave in place at low pressure if appropriate. Remove carefully. Dress wound. Discard device.

Refer to the Instructions for Use for additional information.

 

*To minimize the risk of fistula formation, venous hemostasis should be achieved prior to the removal of the arterial sheath.
