Fully Integrated Compression Offers Precise, Efficient Hemostasis

This system features an integrated digital manometer and a transparent, inflatable dome that offers precise, hands-free compression of the femoral artery or vein. Compared to manual compression, FemoStop™ Gold has been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of peripheral vascular complications.1

Fully Integrated Femoral Compression System

Offers Precise Placement and Control

  • Integrated manometer allows pressure to be adjusted based on patient status.
  • The inflatable, transparent dome offers precise pressure for effective hemostasis.
  • Adjustable belt designed to fit securely so small patient movements may not cause the device to slip.

Improves Staff Efficiency and Safety

  • Hands-free femoral artery or vein compression allows staff to monitor multiple patients at one time.
  • Transparent dome ensures puncture site visibility.
  • Hands-free compression minimizes staff exposure to blood and reduces neck, arm, and wrist fatigue.

  1. Pull the red tab to activate the pump.
  2. Position belt in line with puncture site(s), equal on both sides.
  3. Peel back lid, keeping the dome sterile.
  4. Center dome over arterial puncture (superior and medial to skin incision). Keep sheath hubs clear of dome rim.
  5. 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.
  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.
