BloodSTOP® and BloodSTOP® iX are biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrices of fibers made from natural plant compounds. They adhere to a wound, initiate blood coagulation, stop bleeding, and form a protective membrane layer to create an optimal environment for wound healing. Their water solubility allows for removal by rinsing, without disruption of a clotted surface.
These products are covered by U.S. Patent No. 7,262,181.

Cath Lab, Interventional Radiology, Hospital:
“Over the years I have used many topical hemostatic pads and BloodSTOP® iX is the most effective at reducing hold times that I have found. It is versatile and as a single package solution for most routine applications, economical enough to use. Long Beach Memorial Hospital has a very busy Interventional Radiology Lab and the time saved with BloodSTOP® iX is important in maintaining the flow of our daily schedule and the quality of our patient care.”

Listen to what this consumer is saying!
"I have been purchasing the CVS Advanced BloodSTOP® hemostatic gauze for nosebleeds I have diabetes and take Plavix daily. I frequently get posterior (far back and deep) nosebleeds and find that the CVS BloodSTOP® 2"x2" size works very well. After the bleeding stops, I wait for awhile to ensure that there isn't any rebleeding. When I pull it out, it doesn't hurt at all, and comes out like a gel tube."
