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.
SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) Paramedic Officer talks about his amazing experience using BloodSTOP® iX!
Testimony of BloodSTOP®iX
"I was on duty and conducting a rifle training class for 20 patrol officers when someone called for a medic to attend another officer struck in the face with a piece of bullet fragment from a ricochet on the steel. I went to the area of the officer hurt and investigated. I observed a laceration on the right side of his face under his eye on his cheek. The laceration was bleeding heavily and needed to be stopped as soon as possible. I obtained BloodSTOP®iX at a SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) conference a few months back and kept 2 packs in my trauma bag. I decided to use the BloodSTOP®iX for this since his face was cut. I applied the BloodSTOP® iX to the officer’s face and wrapped it with gauze and held direct pressure. I 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. I transported the officer to the ER keeping the BloodSTOP® iX in place along on the way. 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. Thanks to everyone at BloodSTOP®iX for developing such a great product- I truly love it."
