BloodSTOP® iX in Hospital Applications – USA
In cases where sutures alone are not sufficient to achieve hemostasis, or clotted surfaces of surgical incisions may be re-opened, BloodSTOP® iX can be cut, packed, formed or layered to quickly control bleeding so surgeons can attend to the procedure at hand.
Multiple pieces can be placed on a wound site to stop wide area bleeding. Unlike cauterization, BloodSTOP® iX eliminates negative impact to tissue. Its reliability and fast-acting nature frees up the surgeon to focus on the operative task at hand with the confidence of knowing that bleeding is under control. It can easily be rinsed away with sterile water or saline.

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.
