How to use the HaemoCap™ MultiSite
Inspect wound for debris or penetrating objects.
Apply absorbent gauze or dressing to the wound location or place the gauze on the device and then place onto the wound.
Locate HAEMOCAP™ MultiSite centrally over the wound site ensuring absorbent gauze is covered.
Fix firmly using the hook and loop straps. Tear off the surplus strap.
Attach a suitable vacuum pump capable of achieving -250mmHg and evacuate air from the device until the device constricts.
Close the tube using the valve by pushing together.
Remove the vacuum pump by disconnecting from the tube.
To inspect or replace dressing, release pressure from the device by opening the valve on the device tube.
Peel back the device from the wound. Inspect the wound or apply additional absorbent gauze if needed.
Repeat steps 1-3 to reapply HAEMOCAP™ MultiSite.
