Hemostasis Management

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for devices to help stop bleeding at vascular access sites. These devices can reduce the time to ambulation, allowing same-day procedure discharges. These devices are also used to help reduce bleeding complications and reduce nurse staffing time in post-op care. These include coated or treated bandages to accelerate or augment the clotting cascade, vascular closure devices and compression devices, including radial artery compression systems. Hemostasis is more difficult and time consuming to achieve when larger bore devices are used for structural heart, procedures, endovascular repair devices and hemodynamic support from Impella, TandemHeart and ECMO. The large bore closure segment of the market has been the biggest area of interest in recent years with the rapid expansion of transcatheter structural heart procedures.

Leveraging Vivasure Medical’s PerQseal vascular closure device technology, PerQseal Blue consists of an intravascular patch designed to seal the vessel from the inside, returning the vein to its natural state after it dissolves over time, so no foreign bodies are left behind.

The Morristown Medical Center radial lounge uses recliner chairs rather than hospital beds for patients recovering from cath lab procedures using transradial access. The vascular access technique allows patients to immediately walk off the cath lab table following a procedure and they can use the bathroom and walk around during recovery. This is rapidly becoming the preferred access route in cath labs as opposed to the long-used standard of care of femoral artery access in the groin. #transradial

The Morristown Medical Center radial lounge uses recliner chairs rather than hospital beds for patients recovering from cath lab procedures using transradial access. The vascular access technique allows patients to immediately walk off the cath lab table following a procedure and they can use the bathroom and walk around during recovery. This is rapidly becoming the preferred access route in cath labs as opposed to the long-used standard of care of femoral artery access in the groin, which required hours of being immobilized in a hospital bed after the procedure, an usually an overnight stay at the hospital.
