Dealing with Embedded Objects in Animals: COLLACLOT™ Procedure


In this video, we'll discuss the procedure for handling embedded objects in animals, focusing on the use of COLLACLOT™ for effective first aid.

Understanding the Situation

Scenario: We'll simulate a scenario where a twig is lodged in an animal's leg, highlighting the importance of proper handling.

Key Point: Embedded objects should never be removed as they could be near vital arteries, risking dangerous bleeding.

Using COLLACLOT™ for Control and Healing

Effective Solution: COLLACLOT™ offers a safer and more effective alternative to traditional dressings for controlling bleeding and promoting healing.

Procedure: Carefully pack COLLACLOT™ around the wound without disturbing the embedded object, ensuring stability and effective bleeding control.

Securing with Dressings

Additional Support: Use standard medium dressings to create pads on either side of the embedded object, providing stability and support.

Teamwork: It's advisable to involve two people in this process to ensure proper positioning and stability.

Finalizing the Bandage

Layering: Apply another dressing with a cut-out hole to accommodate the embedded object, securing COLLACLOT™ and preventing movement.

Tying in Place: Securely wrap the bandage around, avoiding direct pressure on the embedded object, to maintain control and stability.

Seeking Veterinary Attention

Important Note: This procedure serves as an initial response, and immediate veterinary attention is crucial for comprehensive care.

Conclusion: By following these steps, you can effectively manage bleeding and stabilize the animal, preparing them for professional veterinary care.
