Local lawmakers met yesterday at the Coffee Memorial Blood Center in Amarillo, Texas to encourage blood donations as normal supply levels are down. “With the COVID crisis, donations are down but the need is not down,” said State Sen. Kel Seliger. “We still have accidents, some surgeries still have to be performed.” And with surgical procedures that were postponed due the COVID19 crisis now being scheduled, blood usage is going back up.
Now more than ever, it is important to save blood and save lives. That is exactly how BloodSTOP iX can help the medical profession: with power to control bleeding, and power to heal. BloodSTOP iX can bring bleeding under control quickly in elective and routine surgeries, burns, trauma injuries, etc., saving lives, and relieving the strain on blood banks.
Reduced time in the operating room and in-patient hospital stay is an added benefit during the COVID-19 pandemic, both for the safety of patients and to keep hospital beds available. Recent data from burn surgery shows BloodSTOP iX to be 8-10 times faster in bleeding control than standard treatment, with hospital stays about one third as long.
