The ER-REBOA™ Catheter is specifically designed for use in the emergency and critical care environment and is optimized to support rapid and immediate hemorrhage control.
Our patented design includes several features which enable safe and effective placement. These include a guidewire free design, atraumatic P-tip®, compliant balloon, and external depth markers to assist in placement.
Importantly, the ER-REBOA™ Catheter is able to be safely and effectively placed with or without the aid of medical imaging if none is available.
Hemorrhage due to trauma is the leading preventable cause of death in the military and civilian setting, accounting for up to 90% of potentially preventable deaths. A significant majority of civilian and combat-related mortality caused by traumatic hemorrhage occurs before reaching definitive care. Therefore, early hemorrhage control as a bridge to definitive surgical care may yield a large survival advantage1.
