The American Red Cross has expressed its thanks to the many blood donors whose response has met the urgent and immediate need for blood, but has stressed the ongoing demand:  “There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus, and the Red Cross needs the help of blood and platelet donors and blood drive hosts to maintain a sufficient blood supply for weeks to come.”

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. 

At LifeScience PLUS, we are doing all we can to help people stay safe.  We provide masks to protect lives from the virus, and BloodSTOP to save lives from bleeding!  For more details, check out our burn surgery, trauma surgery, and hospital application pages.
