Cook Medical brings Hemospray® to U.S. physicians to treat gastrointestinal bleeds.
A new method: methods and results
- 1.Disconnect the carbon dioxide (CO2) tubing from the water bottle. Keep it connected to the CO2 regulator (Fig. 1).
- 2.Take the red end of the TC-325 (Hemospray) delivery catheter and connect it to the free end of the CO2 tubing (Fig. 2).
- 3.Turn the CO2 to “high” (a rate of 3.4 L/min) until a steady flow is observed. Test the end of the catheter by submerging it in water (Fig. 3). The end of the catheter should emit bubbles. With the CO2 insufflating, insert the catheter into the instrument channel of the endoscope.
- 4.With the CO2 still being insufflated, visualize the bleeding area.
- 5.Disconnect the red end of the Hemospray catheter from the CO2 tubing and attach it to the Hemospray gun. Activate the gun and apply the powder.
