HaemoCap Multisite is a wound compression device. It can be rapidly applied to all parts of the body, including the head, neck, upper limbs, maxilla, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. It is not a tourniquet. It supplies up to 50 mm mercury pressure, and no more pressure can be applied, given the fact that all of the air is evacuated from the device. It can be applied by non-medical staff. It's a single-use item that is non-sterile, and it's used with a swab and plus or minus a haemostatic agent of your choice. Also available as an accessory to HaemoCap Multisite is this pump, so any universal suction device can be attached to HaemoCap Multisite. The air is evacuated. The HaemoCap Multisite conforms around the body part. It's capped off. The HaemoCap is now under pressure. Release. And the air is released from the device.

HaemoCap Multisite can be used on a variety of animals. Today we have this dog with a large wound. We could pack it with the haemostatic agent. Today we are using Celox Rapid. If you don't have a haemostatic agent, you can just put your dressing. HaemoCap will go over the top of the wound, loop to loop. Take a universal suction unit, evacuate the air. You will then cap it off and remove the suction unit. If you would like to inspect the wound, remove the vacuum, look at the wound, and re-apply. HaemoCap Multisite can be used on a variety of animals, including farm animals, the equine market, and the canine market.
