A SELF-RETAINING POSTNASAL HEMOSTAT

A SELF-RETAINING POSTNASAL HEMOSTAT The instrument described here has been in use by me and my assistants at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary and in private practice for some time. It is used in all bleeding from the postnasal space, and especially in hemorrhage following adenectomy, which most surgeons make no attempt to control. It can also be used to prevent blood or fluids from passing into the larynx during anterior nasal operations, in which a general anesthetic is given. The instrument consists of a cannula 10 inches long, bent up to about a right angle at the small end, over which a small rubber bag is placed and fastened with a silk thread. To the large end of the cannula a rubber tube 6 inches in length, with air-bag attached, is fastened, and the instrument is completed. The cannula has a stop-cock for the purpose of controlling the air. Insertion. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
