Dia-Stop is a complete single use unit consisting of a plastic armlet with pressure cushion (packed in peel-pouch), sterile and ready to use. After use the complete unit is disposed of.
If the bleeding from the puncture site does not stop immediately after applying Dia-stop, it shows clearly on the highly absorbent white foam part of the pressure cushion. This enables nursing staff to react before the blood spreads to the surrounding skin or clothes.
The high friction surface of the white foam layer prevents accidental displacement of the pressure cushion from the puncture site.
With Dia-stop’s multi-step locking mechanism it is possible to adjust the size and pressure to fit any patient’s requirement. The pressure on the puncture site is easily readjusted after the application.
