Hemostasis Management

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for devices to help stop bleeding at vascular access sites. These include coated or treated bandages to accelorate or augment the clotting cascade, vascular closure devices and compression devices, including radial artery compression systems.

The first drug-coated vascular closure device is the Cardiva Catalyst III. Its protamine sulfate coating neutralizes heparin in the tissue adjacent to the device to facilitate quick vessel closure.
