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 for Public Safety/Military
BloodSTOP® for Public Safety and Military
Public safety organizations such as police, paramedic and fire departments need safe and reliable medical products they can rely on in emergency situations when every second is important. The same holds true for military troops in the field, where bleeding often contributes to a dangerous, debilitating or possibly fatal situation if not brought under control. Police departments must ensure their officers are equipped to respond effectively in situations that may require emergency first aid, having wound care products on hand to administer quickly to incident victims until a medical team arrives.
BloodSTOP® hemostatic products are designed for use in all these situations. Combat, natural disasters, fires, auto accidents, shootings and other emergencies often occur a distance from hospitals and surplus blood supplies. In BloodSTOP®, emergency personnel have a fast and effective way to halt bleeding in wounds, lacerations, and cuts, allowing them to stabilize patients until they can be transported to a medical facility. While BloodSTOP® hemostat goes to work to stop blood loss and seal wounds, medics and EMTs can focus on triage and treating patient injuries.
