The exsanguinating digit tourniquet makes it safe and easy to achieve hemostasis on digits
Cases and Use Indications
Digit tourniquets improve care by creating a bloodless field for procedures on fingers and toes. A bloodless field allows visualization and careful exploration which is critical to wound management. Digit injuries have high complication rates, mostly due to missed injuries with up to 38% of foreign bodies missed on the first visit. Additionally, digit tourniquets are known to facilitate the use of tissue adhesives, simplifying care and reducing visits. Improvised methods can apply dangerous pressure levels and even be forgotten in place, sometimes resulting in amputations.
Mar-Med’s non-pneumatic digit tourniquets exsanguinate during application and constrict vessels once in place, making them quick and easy to use. The Tourni-Cot and Uni-Cot have been proven to provide safe pressure and are designed to be conspicuous to minimize the risk of leaving a tourniquet in place. Mar-Med’s products communicate high quality of care to the patient and cost no more than some improvised methods, like using a sterile surgical glove set.
