Wound Care Products
BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostat and WoundHEAL® is a biocompatible, non-irritating, new generation patented advanced hemostatic matrix. Using a proprietary formulation, natural sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is etherified to make a water-soluble, bioresorbable cellulose matrix. BloodSTOP® iX is designed for surgical and hospitals use, being highly biocompatible. It can be used in internal surgery and for patients taking anticoagulant medications in markets that recognize the European Union CE certification* and has FDA market clearance in the US for surface wound hemostasis only. Applications include general surgery, ENT procedures, thoracic surgery, neurosurgery
BloodSTOP® iX – Advanced Hemostat, WoundHEAL®, and Trauma Matrix for Traumatic Bleeding Control
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.
BloodSTOP® – Hemostat for Surface Wounds
BloodSTOP® is a biocompatible, non-irritating, a new generation patented hemostatic matrix made from water soluble, etherified sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. 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. BloodSTOP® is approved for patients taking anticoagulant medications that recognize the European Union CE certification* and has FDA market clearance in the US for surface wound hemostasis only.
How It Works
BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostat and WoundHEAL® 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® iX quickly absorbs blood and other liquids, transforms into a gel to seal the bleeding wound with a protective transparent moist layer, binds and activates platelets, accelerates clot formation, and creates a physiological environment for wound healing. Each individually-wrapped, sterile piece is composed of sodium carboxymethyl natural plant cellulose, which is water soluble, etherified, non-irritating, bioresorbable matrix. Its water solubility allows for retention of moisture and easy removal by rinsing, without disruption of clotting wound surface.
