The Pocket Press is an external adhesive bandage made of polyurethane and acrylate adhesive intended to support and compress the surgical pocket following implantation of a pacemaker or defibrillator.  It is intended only for left or right-sided cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) implants in the pre-pectoral region. 

The Pocket Press is for use in adults after CIED placement.

The Pocket Press bandage is an elastic polyurethane fabric tape and a polyurethane foam pad[NR1] [AY2] .


The Pocket Press is NOT indicated for use in the following situations:

·       Is not indicated for use as a sterile pressure bandage.

·       is not indicated for direct contact with the surgical incision.


Detailed placement instructions are located on the back of each peel pouch and carton.

Use clean gloves when handling the Pocket Press. 

Ensure the surgical pocket has achieved full hemostasis before applying the Pocket Press.

Dress the surgical pocket according to standard practice before applying the Pocket Press bandage.

Apply Pocket Press only after a primary dressing, thin film or skin adhesive has fully covered the surgical incision and completely dried.

For optimal results, remove as much hair as possible prior to application.

Thoroughly clean and dry application areas.

When applying the Pocket Press, ensure the tape does not come into contact and stick to itself[NR3] [AY4] [AY5] .


1) Loosen the edge of the tape, 2) Stabilize the skin with one finger at the peel line, 3) As the tape is slowly removed, continue to support the skin at the peel line to avoid removal of the primary dressing underneath.


As with any surgical procedure involving the implantation of a pacemaker/defibrillator, there may be complications, including but not limited to, bleeding, hematoma/seroma formation, inflammation, infections, skin tears, extrusion, fistula formation or death.  (See WARNINGS/PRECAUTIONS)
