BloodSTOP®iX Advanced Hemostat, WoundHEAL®and Trauma Matrix for Military and Law Enforcement

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. 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®iX Advanced Hemostat, WoundHEAL®and Trauma Matrix is designed for temporary emergency use in the control of surface bleeding. Combat, natural disasters, fires, auto accidents, shootings and other emergencies often occur a distance from hospitals and surplus blood supplies. In BloodSTOP® iX, emergency personnel have a fast and effective way to halt bleeding, allowing them to stabilize patients until they can be transported to a medical facility. While BloodSTOP® iX hemostat goes to work to stop blood loss and seal wounds, medics and EMTs can focus on triage and treating patient injuries.

About BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostat, WoundHEAL® and Trauma Matrix

BloodSTOP® iX is a next generation advanced hemostatic dressing made from water soluble, etherified sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. It turns into a gel and adheres to any wound and, upon contact with blood, initiates blood coagulation, stops bleeding fast, and forms a protective layer that creates a natural moist environment to promote healing. 

Its water solubility allows for easy removal through rinsing without disruption of the clotted wound surface. BloodSTOP® iX exerts its pro-coagulant activity by activating the intrinsic coagulation pathway, accelerating clot formation.

Pre-Clinical Study on BloodSTOP® iX Trauma Matrix

A pre-clinical study examined BloodSTOP® iX Trauma Matrix’s effectiveness in stopping arterial hemorrhage using a standard military and FDA approved battlefield extremity wound model. Results of the swine study showed that BloodSTOP® iX achieved a 100% survival rate, compared to a 80% survival rate with the current product used by the US Military.

“A SWAT officer struck in the face with a piece of bullet fragment from a ricochet on the steel…I applied BloodSTOP® iX and was truly surprised to find that the BloodSTOP® iX absolutely did wonders for stopping the bleeding in a matter of just 20 to 30 seconds…When the ER staff took everything off, there was no bleeding and the scaring was very minimal.  The whole staff at the ER was amazed. I am very happy with the performance of BloodSTOP® iX, and it will be my continued go-to hemostatic agent of choice in my trauma bag.” Officer M.
