Artery forceps are available at Surgical Holdings for grasping and compressing an artery to control bleeding, typically using handles that can be held in place by a locking mechanism. As the artery forceps are closed, the opposing teeth engage and interlock, keeping the handles adducted and the jaw surfaces clamped constantly. Artery forceps use finger loops to facilitate handling. The finger loops are usually grasped by the thumb and middle or ring fingers, while the index finger helps stabilise and guide the instrument. Artery forceps belong to a group of surgical instruments called hemostats.
