Vari-Fit Contour Cuffs

Description

The Delfi Vari Fit Contour Tourniquet Cuff and Matching Limb Protection Sleeve System was developed because people differ so much in the shape of their extremities. The Delfi Vari Fit Contour Tourniquet Cuff System allows most extremities to be fitted with just three cuff sizes.

The enhanced fit of these wider cuffs provides a clean, bloodless surgical field at lower pressures, so surgical procedures can be completed as efficiently and expediently as possible. Because the Delfi Vari Fit Contour Tourniquet Cuffs fit the extremities so well, occlusion of arterial bloodflow can be achieved with pressures as low as 200 mmHg for the single bladder style and 250 mmHg for the dual bladder style.

Delfi Vari Fit Contour Tourniquet Cuffs can be used to achieve occlusion of arterial bloodflow at even lower pressures – near the ideal Minimum Effective Pressure for each patient – using techniques described in the medical literature that are based on measuring the Limb Occlusion Pressure of individual patients (see Recently Published Results).

To safely achieve and maintain occlusion of arterial bloodflow at low pressures, Delfi Vari Fit Contour Cuffs are specifically designed for use with Zimmer’s A.T.S.® 3000, A.T.S.® 2000 and A.T.S.® 750 Automatic Tourniquet Systems, as well as with Zimmer’s older A.T.S.® 1500 and A.T.S.® 500 Automatic Tourniquet Systems*.

Delfi Vari Fit Contour Tourniquet Cuffs are wider than standard tourniquet cuffs (5.5 vs. 4.0 inches or 14 vs. 10 cm) in accordance with the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses’ guidelines which recommend using as wide a cuff as possible**.

Features

Excellent Fit
Variable fit conforms to a wide range of limb shapes and degree of taper, providing improved fit and stability

Low Pressure Cuffs for Improved Safety
As recommended in current AORN Recommended Standards and Practices Guide, tourniquet inflation pressure should be kept to the minimum effective pressure.

A study comparing tourniquet cuffs and pressures used during surgery showed that significantly lower pressures can be used with Vari Fit Contour Cuffs when Limb Occlusion Pressure (LOP) is measured

Pivoting Fastening Strap
For easy and secure tourniquet application; allows the cuff to fit ideally which allows the use of lower pressure for the improved safety of patients

Latex Free
All Delfi products are latex-free

Better Inventory Management
Cost effective, one-size-fits-all design for Arm, Thigh and Lower Leg. Stock only 3 sizes for upper and lower limb surgeries compared to the four to seven cylindrical cuffs needed to cover a similar range of limb circumferences
