Hospitals are facing a critical blood shortage during the COVID-19 pandemic, “with one medical director warning: ’This could kill our patients,’” according to The Guardian. It is now more important than ever 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. The Red Cross estimates that a single car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood. BloodSTOP iX can reduce that, preserving the life-giving blood supply.
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.
