Discover the lifesaving ARC device, designed to provide stable hemostasis for carotid artery injuries in military and civilian patients. Learn about its history, development, testing, and added functionalities that make it a valuable asset in emergency medical care.

What is the history of the ARC device?

The Arterial Restriction Clamp (ARC) device was developed to address the high mortality rate of wounds to the carotid arteries and jugular veins in the neck region. It was created by Lauren Edmonson, Austin Ballentine, Caleb Williams, Dr. Tim Norman, and Dr. Jeff Williams. The team developed multiple prototypes and conducted extensive testing using a cadaveric perfusion model at Cedarville University.

    Why is the ARC device important?

    The carotid artery is a vital artery that supplies blood to the brain. Injuries to this artery can be life-threatening, especially during combat or accidents. The ARC device aims to provide stable hemostasis to the neck region, facilitating transport and allowing medical personnel to attend to other patients or injuries.

    How does the ARC device work?

    The ARC device is designed to compress the neck with an occlusive clamp, stopping blood flow from a lacerated carotid artery. The device has been tested extensively using a cadaveric perfusion model, proving its effectiveness in tamponading blood flow and potentially saving lives.

    What is the cadaveric perfusion model?

    The cadaveric perfusion model is designed to provide simulated blood flow in a cadaver, allowing for the testing of medical devices and surgical repair techniques that would not be possible due to the nature of the procedures. Synthetic blood is pumped through the cadaver, and the device’s effectiveness is tested under near-physiological pressure and flow conditions.

    What improvements have been made to the ARC device?

    The ARC device was later redesigned as a multi-purpose device by adding the functions of a laryngoscope for intubation in the field. An insert and straps were also added to provide additional functionality for junctional tamponade, applying pressure to junctional areas. This version is called the Laryngoscope-Junctional ARC (LJ-ARC).

      Is the ARC device patented?

      Yes, the ARC device is patented, ensuring the protection of its unique design and functionality.

        How can the ARC device benefit both military and civilian patients?

        The ARC device has the potential to make an almost unsurvivable injury treatable for military and civilian patients, even in mass casualty situations. Its ability to provide stable hemostasis and facilitate transport allows medical personnel to attend to other patients or injuries while the injured individual receives life-saving care.
