QuikClot shows significantly shortened haemostasis in pilot study with no noted increase in complica

A small pilot trial comparing a kaolin-based haemostatic pad (QuikClot Radial) with mechanical compression (TR Band) after trans-radial access, demonstrated that haemostasis times were significantly shorter with the QuikClot Radial pad, with no increase in complications noted. Potential benefits include less Radial Artery Occlusion (RAO), improved patient comfort, and less resource utilisation post procedure. This study comes before a larger, adequately powered trial, which is presently being planned and is needed to assess the true efficacy and safety of this approach. Unlike other haemostats, QuikClot devices are impregnated with kaolin, an inorganic mineral that accelerates the body’s na
