This set of medical products is used to stop intractable postpartum hemorrhage. The Guardian balloon is a do-it-yourself balloon tamponade made from a strong condom hooked to an IV tube and IV bag. The IV bag feeds into the tubing which is then attached, by the provider, to a condom, tied to the tubing with a sterile suture. Included in this set of materials is the following: IV bag, IV tubuing, sterile suture, 2 Glyde condoms, two 10 foot rolls of gauze for packing around the condom balloon, gloves and pictoral instructions.
The condom balloon tamponade method is used as a last resort in settings where other types of balloon tamponade are not available.
Maternova has developed a set of instructions and a pictoral wall chart to accompany the set of medical products needed to create the balloon tamponade.
The minimum order is a case, including 50 Guardian balloon sets. Each set is $17.
