Instructions for use
Place a gauze swab between the fistula access and the FistulaStop. Make sure that the bulge covers the fistula access. Then, stretch the strap around the patient’s arm and secure it.
Remove it when the blood flow has stopped and before the patient goes home. If continuously used, it should be changed once a month.
