Disposable Radial Artery compression Band

A radial artery tourniquet, also known as a radial artery compression device, is specifically designed to compress the radial artery in the wrist area. It is used during procedures that require temporary occlusion of the radial artery, such as arterial blood gas sampling or arterial line placement.


    By applying pressure to the radial artery, the tourniquet restricts blood flow to the hand and forearm, allowing healthcare professionals to access and work on the artery without excessive bleeding. It provides temporary hemostasis by compressing the arterial blood vessels in the area.

    It is important to note that a radial artery tourniquet should only be used by healthcare professionals who are trained and experienced in its proper application and removal.

    To use a radialartery tourniquet, please follow these steps:

    1. Ensure that you are a trained healthcare professional and have received proper training on the use of radial artery tourniquets.

    2. Gather all necessary supplies, including a radial artery tourniquet, alcohol swabs, gloves, and any other sterile equipment required for the procedure you are performing.

    3. Inspect the tourniquet for any damage or defects to ensure its integrity.

    4. Wash your hands thoroughly and put on sterile gloves.

    5. Identify the patient's wrist where the radial artery is located. Generally, the radial artery is located on the thumb side of the wrist.

    6. Clean the patient's wrist with an alcohol swab or other antiseptic solution to ensure the area is clean and sterile.

    7. Open the radial artery tourniquet packaging carefully, ensuring sterility is maintained.

    8. Place the tourniquet around the patient's wrist, positioning it just above the level of the radial artery. Adjust the tightness of the tourniquet to achieve the desired compression and occlusion of blood flow. Make sure it is tightened securely but not so tight that it causes the patient discomfort or compromises peripheral pulses.

    9. Once the tourniquet is in place, secure it by fastening the straps or closures as directed by the manufacturer.
