Missys Product Review: BloodSTOP
Rather you are a parent or a doctor if you have a cut or abrasion you want a product to help control the bleeding fast and I have learned about a new product myself from LifeScience Plus called BloodSTOP. BloodSTOP is a biocompatible, non-irritating, hemostatic agent which resembles traditional gauze. Using a proprietary formulation, regenerated cotton cellulose is etherified and oxidized to make a water-soluble, hemostatic matrix. Its composition provides certain advantages for natural rapid hemostasis as well as patient comfort and improved wound management when compared with traditional adhesive bandages, sprays, chemical powder, or animal-based products.
It works when applied to a wound;BloodSTOP quickly absorbs blood and other body fluids, transforms into a gel to seal the wound with a protective transparent layer, actively aids in blood coagulation, and creates an environment for wound healing.
My Opinion: I found when that when I applied to a wound it did work as stated stopping the bleeding fast and as the gauze is large I cut the extra off as my wound was small. I like it and hope to see doctors and health care professions using them soon. I also will include these in my first aid to have on hand at home. Just think how you can stop the bleeding fast you won’t lose a lot of blood on wounds.
