REDUCING TIME TO BIOLOGICAL HEMOSTASIS
The actual time a patient needs to leave the dialysis center depends on the speed a biological clot is created on the access point. While some patients clot relatively quickly, others may take longer and in some cases even hours. This causes much discomfort to the patient and is time-consuming to the attending medical staff.
WoundClot reduces the time a clot is formed by accumulating coagulants in large quantities in the product, and transferring them onto the vessel or artery’s exit point, reducing the time a clot is created and strengthening the clot formed.
PRESSURE REDUCTION ON THE FEEDING VESSELS
The need to apply pressure on the access point in order to stop post dialysis bleeding creates many clinical and personal difficulties, both short term and long term. Blood vessels exposed to repeated pressure over time, may become distensive due to stenosis and cause aneurysms, which makes treatment very dif cult and submits the patient to painful treatment and discomfort.
WoundClot needs light pressure to stop the post-dialysis bleeding by using the blood pressure to adhere to the access point. This is caused by a physics principle called Hydration. The light pressure used in the application of WoundClot is intended to bridge between the Dermis and the access point and not to mechanically stop the blood from pressing out.
Though the patient leaves the dialysis center after bleeding has stopped, in many cases the clot is fragile and the massive arterial pressure may cause re-bleeding either in transit or at home. In these cases the patient finds himself helpless and cause blood pressure to drop.
WoundClot needs little to no pressure in application and is certified to be used by non-trained personnel, allowing easy self-use. It is affordable and could become a vital backup to patients anywhere.
The WoundClot Trauma Gauze is intended for bleeding control of traumatic wounds, including moderate to severe bleeding applications.
