Gastrointestinal bleeding can be challenging, requiring fast decision-making and efficient tools to achieve effective results. To help clinicians meet that challenge, Cook Medical launched Hemospray, an advanced treatment option for patients suffering from non-variceal bleeding in the upper GI tract. Hemospray represents a different approach to treat upper GI bleeds as it does not require the en face approach and the precise targeting of other current treatments.
Below, you’ll hear from Dr Martin James, Queens Medical Centre UK, and Dr John Morris, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, as they discuss the patient impact and clinical benefits they’ve experienced with this haemostatic powder.
Early adopters of Hemospray: Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham
In a programme presented by UK newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, Dr Martin James, alongside Prof Krish Ragunath and Deputy Sister Tara Shepherd, discuss the clinical impact of Hemospray in their facility and the confidence it has given the team when facing non-variceal upper GI bleeding.
This video is co-produced by ITN Productions, Cook Medical and the RSM.
Clinical case: Management of an oesophageal cancer bleed using Hemospray
A patient was hospitalised for 3 days after presenting at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary with bleeding post laser therapy for advanced oesophageal carcinoma. The patient required 1-3 units of blood on a daily basis. Watch as Dr John Morris takes us through this case and how the team achieved haemostasis after treating the bleed site using Hemospray.
