Advanced Bleeding Control for Your “Stop the Bleed” Program
WoundClot™ is a single-use, sterile and bio-absorbable hemostatic gauze, made from a cellulosic structure, which can be fabricated to control bleeding. WoundClot can be used as a topical dressing for local management of bleeding wounds, such as cuts, lacerations, and abrasions. The hemostatic dressing can also be used for temporary treatment of severely bleeding wounds, withstanding severe arterial and venous blood flow for hours.
How WoundClot Works:
Upon application and contact with blood, a gelatinous membrane adheres to the wound creating a barrier that immediately reduces blood flow. Platelets from the wound attach to the gauze to form a stable membrane.
Molecules are dispersed during gel formation to activate various coagulation factors in the blood, thus helping to form a natural fibrin clot in the wound.
After bleeding has stopped, the remaining residual membrane can be irrigated out of the wound safely without pulling on soft tissue or the existing clot.
