Product DetailsIf you’re looking for a high-quality for temporary wound care, then it doesn’t get much better than the WoundClot Hemostatic Gauze bandage. Using a newly created hemostatic agent just released in 2016 and rapidly gaining adoption throughout the whole medical sphere, WoundClot has key benefits for any medical professional who may treat moderate to severe bleeding, be it during surgery, an emergency situation or during any type of appointment.
WoundClot Hemostatic Gauze Product Features:
• Rapid blood coagulation in seconds without direct pressure
• Applies to irregular surfaces
• Has no known side effects
• Able to stop venous and arterial blood for hours
• Can hold 2,500 times its original weight in blood
Hemostatic agents already exist, so what’s so special about WoundClot Hemostatic Gauze? First of all, this gauze is able to bond within seconds and only with initial placement pressure. That’s right. It doesn’t take minutes of direct pressure to close the wound and form a bond, it only takes seconds. That’s precious time during a severe bleeding event.
Not only that, but this allows doctors and technicians to tend to other wounds quicker or perform other medical procedures as the wound is temporarily stopped. This can be the difference between life and death, plus it just makes the job easier for all medical professionals involved. Each gauze pad is only single-use.
How Does It Work?
The sterile pad is made from a revolutionary type of regenerated cellulose. When applied to blood, it promotes fast coagulation and bonds directly to the blood. That’s the key to how this product works. Once itcomes into contact with blood, the pad’s molecular structure will alter to form a membrane that adheres right to the wound.
This forms a mechanical barrier that significantly and rapidly reduces blood flow. Not only that, but it’s been made to accommodate for bleeding pressure. The more blood rushing to the area, the stronger the bond will become. This allows the pad to regulate its bond appropriately without supervision.
How Long Does It Work?
This is not a substitute for sutures or staples as this is just a temporary solution. However, don’t let the word “temporary” make you think less of the WoundClot Hemostatic Gauze. This gauze pad is able to stop bleeding for hours, and not just any bleeding. It can stop severe venous and arterial blood flow for hours, making it much easier to treat patients and to keep them alive, even after severe accidents and emergencies.
Not only that, but removing the gauze is easy. Once the bleeding has reduced to a safe level, the remaining membrane can be irrigated without interfering with the forming clot or surrounding soft tissue. This ensures that you don’t accidentally reopen the clot and cause the bleeding to occur again.
For such a tiny gauze pad, you’ll be surprised by how much blood it can hold. The WoundClot Hemostatic Gauze has a capacity of over 2,500 times its original weight. That’s a significant amount of blood it can hold, and with that mechanical barrier preventing the blood flow, this should be more than enough for most situations.
This pad might be tiny, but it has a significant liquid capacity that can’t be ignored.
Despite its many benefits, the WouldClot is incredibly easy to use. In fact, since it requires less time and pressure than a normal hemostatic gauze pad, it’s even easier to use than a conventional one. Just remove it from the pack, apply it to the bleeding and the gauze will do the rest. Also, since it’s flexible gauze, it can adhere to irregular surfaces. Any part of the body can be treated without interfering with the gauze.
Each pack is individual wrapped as well to ensure they are sterile, and the gauze pad is water soluble.
Few products can claim the number of benefits that WoundClot can, and it’s easy to see how this can be useful in any bleeding situation. Whether in the operating room or for first responders, any medical professional can use this to quickly stop bleeding until a more permanent treatment can be applied. Not only that, but it’s easier to use than other hemostatic gauze pads, making it simpler for medical professionals to apply.
