Method of use

TAMPONADE TECHNIQUE FOR POSTPARTUM HEMORRHAGE IN 5 STEPS

1-Determine uterine volume by direct examination or ultrasound examination

2- Transvaginal placement:

Insert the distal part of the catheter into the uterus, making sure that the balloon is          completely positioned beyond the cervical canal and the internal ostium

    Transabdominal Placement during C-Section:

  • Insert the catheter by hysterotomy, placing the part with inflation fittings into the vaginal canal through cervix, and the tip with balloon into the uterine cavity. 
  • Close the incision as standard practice

3- BALLOONS INFLATION

  • Preload the 60 ml included syringe with sterile saline solution. Connect the syringe to the blue lumen “water”and inject the liquid. Close the stopcock. In this way the outer balloon is inflated.
  • Connect the same 60 ml syringe (empty) to the inflation valve of the stopcock of the transparent lumen“air inflation” and inflate max 420 cc of air (ca 7 pumps).Once the balloon has been inflated, close the stopcock.The inflation valve of the transparent lumen allows to keep the syringe connected during inflation procedure.In this way the internal balloon is inflated.

4- CONNECT THE DRAINAGE BAG

Connect the drainage port (red colour) to the included fluid collection bag to monitor hemostasis

5- BALLOON REMOVAL

  • Remove the inflation valve of the transparent lumen and open the stopcock in order to leak the air out
  • Open the blue lumen stopcock or use a suitable syringe to draw the contents of the external balloon until it totally deflates.The catheter shaft may be cut to facilitate more rapid deflation
  • Gently retract the balloon from the uterus and vaginal canal and discard
