BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostat and WoundHEAL® for ENT Otolaryngology
BloodSTOP® iX Advanced Hemostat with WoundHEAL® is a clinically proven revolutionary hemostatic dressing and wound healing matrix that provides rapid hemorrhage control, reducing blood loss. Unlike other wound care products with the single benefit of hemostasis, BloodSTOP iX also seals the wound to prevent contamination, providing a moist wound environment for proliferation of new tissue, making BloodSTOP iX a total wound care solution. It is an all-natural, plant-based, biocompatible, water soluble etherified sodium carboxymethyl cellulose matrix that utilizes patented technology to achieve superior hemostasis. It contains no animal, human, or added-chemical components.
At the wound interface, upon contact with blood, exudates, or body fluids, BloodSTOP iX quickly turns into a translucent sticky gel, and activates the intrinsic coagulation cascade, thus accelerating clot formation. The protective gel seals the wound without irritation, and minimizes blood loss.
BloodSTOP iX is reliable and fast acting which allows the ENT surgeon to focus on the operative tasks with confidence in knowing that the bleeding is under control.

“Over the last 6 months I had numerous opportunities to evaluate the hemostatic properties of BloodSTOP® iX and to compare it to a number of similar products available in the surgical market place.
This product was successfully used for control of epistaxis (both anterior and posterior), postoperative hemostasis following sinus surgery and postoperative hemostasis/artificial barrier following adult tonsillectomy.
BloodSTOP iX was simple to use, less expensive than other hemostatic products and was well tolerated by the patients. In my experience, there were no complications related to the use of the product. No surgical site infections were observed.”

Technique Tip for Surgeons
Apply BloodSTOP iX on wounds with dry instruments! The hydrophilic properties of BloodSTOP iX will cause it to adhere to wet instruments or wet gloves, making application difficult.
