Hemorrhage is the single largest cause of preventable trauma death. Publicly it’s called Bleeding Shock. when our armed forces are out in the combat zone, stopping a bleeding wound can be difficult. As a medical student I saw this type of case where we are try to stop bleeding but it’s not possible to stop bleeding in major cases. Mostly if it’s street accidents. In the normal way its take time to stop major bleeding. But we are found a smart medgadget which can help us to prevent it. We called it ITClamp.
This device is a great concept from a simple hair clip. When we are tide our hair and make a ponitel we use some kind of hair clip to tide it up. Filips takes this simple hair clip concept and make a revoulationary designed called ITClamp. The ITClamp is essentially a sterile, plastic clamp approximately five centimeters in length, with curved needles along the “jaws” of the device. In a trauma situation, the responder clamps the device along the wound. The curved needles and the shape of the ITClamp draw the wound up into the device and anchor it with even pressure, allowing the blood underneath to create a clot around the wound and help stop the bleeding until the victim receives further medical attention.
The ITClamp can be applied in a matter of seconds and can used by basically anyone with minimal training. The device only costs about $65, so it’s affordable for military units, hospitals, and paramedics anywhere, but it’s yet to clear the regulatory process before it becomes available.
