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 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.
BloodSTOP® in Medical and Surgical Applications
BloodSTOP® for Medical Use
BloodSTOP® hemostatic products are indicated for medical emergency and therapeutic use in the control of bleeding from the skin and other surface wounds where fast temporary hemostasis is required. When applied to a wound, BloodSTOP® and BloodSTOP® iX quickly absorb blood and exudates, transform into a gel to seal the wound with a protective transparent layer, bind and activate platelets, provide support for clot formation, and create an environment for wound healing. Each individually-wrapped, sterile piece is composed of regenerated natural plant fiber cellulose, which is oxidized and etherified to make a hydrophilic, water soluble, non-irritating, bioresorbable matrix.
Examples of Medical Applications
“As a registered nurse working primarily with dialysis procedures, I have had great experience with BloodSTOP®. I was always concerned about how to stop the bleeding from a patient’s exit site and catheter. BloodSTOP® stops the bleeding and puts my mind at ease.”
