In the emergency department I have used The HemCon Bandage when conventional means have failed. A few weeks ago I had a patient with a large lingual tumor and trismus (about 1cm). The tumor was bleeding quite briskly and we could not get to it. I put a HemCon 1×3 inch bandage into the patient’s mouth over the bleeding tumor. I put some slight pressure on it and got control of the bleeding.
