ChitoClot Artery Compression Device (Radial)

Innovative combination of ChitoClot pad and device designed for radial hemostasis.


A Hemostatic Device Combined with a Hemostatic Pad

Novel combination of compression device and ChitoClot Pad delivers more active and stronger coagulation effect. Continuous and stable compression can reduce a patient’s blood loss and the risk of complications, such as limb swelling, limb numbness and cold limbs. No time-consuming manual compression is needed. Smart rotating knob design enables medical staff to easily adjust pressure to a moderate level and adjust according to patient’s hemorrhage condition at any time. Soft flannel belt can be used for long duration without causing swelling, itching, irritation, or allergy. 


  • A novel compression device with chitosan pad for efficient artery bleeding control
  • Adjustable rotating knob for point pressure and optimal patient comfort
  • Transparent structure for better observation of the puncture site
  • Rapid hemorrhage control to reduce the risk of complication

Silicone rubber pad 

Maintains stable and uniform pressure on the surface.

Soft flannel belt 

Special Velcro provides a firm but comfortable fixation under tension.

Smart rotating knob 

Easy to operate and adjust to moderate pressure level.

Allows for easy adjustment of pressure any time.

Plastic release sheet

It is convenient for medical staff to separate the hemostatic device from the hemostatic pad and keep the ChitoClot Pad on the puncture site for the following bind-up or other treatments.

Anscare ChitoClot Pad (hemostatic pad)

The hemostatic pad effectively reduced blood loss and caused the lower chance of secondary injury contributed by adhesion to the surface of the wound.

Anscare ChitoClot Artery Compression Device AC-1-1 comes with an adhesive which could be used with dressings, while AC-1-2 comes with a ChitoClot Pad. The compression device applies the pressure on the puncture wound to stop bleeding, while the ChitoClot Pad helps control bleeding and absorb wound exudate to improve hemostatic effect. AC-1-3 can could be used directly to compress the puncture wound to stop bleeding.

Instruction for use

ChitoClot Artery Compression Device (Radial)

Withdraw the sheath for 2~3 cm and clean the skin incision area.

Position the centre point of ChitoClot Pad to the arterial puncture site.

Wind around the wrist with flannel band. Tighten it on fixing plate by attaching the black velcro to the flannel band.

Withdraw the sheath in a parallel-to-forearm direction, and quickly apply pressure vertically through device.

Rotate the knob clockwise till the top of the knob meets the top of the rotating core to serve appropriate pressure.

Assess the pulses of radial and ulnar artery. Check and confirm there’s no bleeding from the puncture site.

Findings from Clinical Study

A simple and comfortable solution for effective haemostasis: 

■ Conventional bandage pressing to achieve haemostasis (N=880)

 Haemostasis achieved using Anscare ChitoClot Artery Compression Device (N=880)

Clinical application of Anscare ChitoClot Radial Artery Compression Device undergoing transradial catheterization. Chinese Journal of Cardiovascular Research, Febrary 2015, Vol.13, No.2

Protect Radial Artery to prevent early or late radial artery occlusion (RAO): Occlusively compressing the radial artery to achieve haemostasis was making chronic occlusion of the radial artery more frequent. (Circ. Cardiovasc. Interv., February 2012)
