Straight Hemostat, Stainless Steel - 5 Inch

This item is called a hemostat

It also goes by several other names such as: a hemostatic clamp, arterial forceps, or pean after Jules-Émile Péan. This is a very important surgical tool used in many surgical procedures to control bleeding. It is common to see the initial incision lined with hemostats to close blood vessels awaiting ligation during surgery. Hemostats belong to a group of instruments that pivot (similar to scissors, and including needle holders, tissue holders and various clamps) where the structure of the tip determines the function.

The hemostat has handles that can be held in place by their locking mechanism. The locking mechanism consists of series of interlocking teeth, that allow for adjustment of the clamping force of the pliers. When locked on, the force between the tips is approximately 40 N (9 lbf).

Hemostats are part of the first aid kit carried by combat medics and paramedics. They are also used as heatsinks while soldering electric circuits, and by fishermen to remove hooks from the mouths of fish, and by motor mechanics to hold nuts, bolts, screws in constricted locations.
