Femoral Hemostasis

Mechanical Compression

The CompressAR® System continues to be the world leader in mechanical compression, as a practical alternative or replacement to manual compression. The CompressAR has been used successfully on millions of patients for over 30 years. There are several CompressAR models available to meet various hospitals’ needs, including those that are compatible with Hill-Rom VersaCare and TotalCare hospital beds.

The CompressAR System is comprised of a durable CompressAR Stand and a sterile, disposable CompressAR Disc. The Disc easily attaches to the tip of the CompressAR Arm for the purpose of achieving femoral hemostasis. All CompressAR Stands feature a rotating, locking Shaft and a movable Arm Slide for easy application and removal.
