  • Publication number: 20190099188
    Abstract: Tissue compression devices with a combination of fixation and tension straps and methods of using the same are described herein. The tissue compression devices include a combination of fixation and tension straps that are used together to fix or attach the tissue compression device over selected tissue at a selected location on a patient and to apply pressure to the selected tissue. In one or more embodiments, the fixation straps are sued to fix or attach the tissue compression device and the tension straps are used to provide tension that is converted to pressure on the selected tissue.

  • Publication number: 20180344324
    Abstract: Tissue compression devices having pressure indicators and methods of using the same. The tissue compression devices provide feedback to a user with respect to the pressure being applied to selected tissue at a selected location such as a radial artery to assist the user in applying the desired amount of pressure to the tissue (such as the pressure needed to achieve hemostasis at an access site). The pressure indication may be provided by a ring indicator that moves between two configurations (e.g., a concave configuration and a convex configuration), a bellow chamber in a housing, a bladder located below a bladder window, etc.

  • Patent number: 10118001
    Abstract: A cap assembly mountable to a rigid shield around a needle of a syringe. The cap assembly includes a gripper component and a base cap. The gripper component includes a support frame and a liner that is deformable when sandwiched between the support frame and the rigid shield. When the base cap is installed to the gripper component during manufacture, and with the rigid shield disposed in a bore of the gripper component in any rotational orientation relative thereto, the liner is held by the support frame so as to be deformed against and grip the rigid shield for shield removal purposes so as to allow for removal of the rigid shield from around the needle.

  • Patent number: 9955978
    Abstract: Tissue compression devices including a multi-chamber bladder that is retained within the tissue compression device, with the multi-chamber bladder being positioned in a bladder orifice in a base of a compression device body. The multi-chamber bladder includes at least one upper chamber located above the base and at least one lower chamber located below the base. The lower chamber is located between the base and a selected location on a patient when the compression device is positioned over selected tissue such as, e.g., a radial artery, as described herein.

  • Publication number: 20180008284
    Abstract: Tissue compression devices having a tension limiting strap retainer and methods of using the same. The tissue compression devices described herein may include a strap retainer that is attached to a base by an elastic member that is configured to draw the strap retainer towards the base. The tissue compression devices described herein may also include a tension indicator that extends between the base of the tissue compression device and strap retainer. The tension indicator may be configured to limit the travel distance of the strap retainer away from the base in response to forces acting on the strap retainer. The tension indicator may also provide visual feedback to a user of the tension force in a strap to attach the tissue compression device to a patient.

  • Publication number: 20150305751
    Abstract: Tissue compression devices with deflecting pressure elements and methods of using the same are described herein. The tissue compression devices include a pressure element and a retention structure attached to the pressure element. The retention structure may be configured to retain the intermediate portion of the pressure element over selected tissue in a selected location on a patient (such as, e.g., over a radial artery access site). Movement of first and second end portions of the pressure element towards each other along an actuation axis causes the intermediate portion of the pressure element to deflect away from the actuation axis towards the selected tissue.
