BloodSTOP® iX is a next generation advanced hemostatic and wound healing matrix made from water soluble, etherified sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. It is used by medical professionals and hospitals. It is a fully biocompatible, non-irritating, woven matrix of natural cellulose. It absorbs blood and exudates, transforms 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 an autologous moist wound healing environment.
BloodSTOP® iX has both European Union Class II & III CE Mark Certifications for absorbable implant and topical wound use, including patients on anticoagulant medications. It currently has US Market Clearance for topical wound hemostasis.

2. Traditional tareatment usually consists of: petroleum dressing for donor site healing; epi-soaked collagen & silica based compression dressing, suture ligation, and electrocautery for hemostasis of DPT/FT burn; dermal substitutes, silver products, and anti-microbials for healing of DPT/FT burn.

Re-healing of donor site at 7 days from 2nd operation
100% Graft Uptake on Day 7
A Novel Approach to Maintain Hemostasis and Achieve Improved Wound Healing
BloodSTOP® iX was placed over the entire wound followed by a layer of non-adherent dressing and then the left forearm was placed into a wound VAC. Upon takedown of the entire dressing on postoperative day five, it was noted that the patient’s wounds were completely epithelialized and his wound care was transitioned to lotion.
