Hemostatic Wound Dressings

December 16, 2008 9:36 am | Hemcon Medical Technologies, Inc. | Product Releases | Comments

HemCon dressings control bleeding by becoming extremely adherent when in contact with blood. The adhesive-like action seals the wound and attracts red blood cells to the bandage, forming a seal that stops hemorrhaging independent of the body's natural clotting process. The bandages and dressings provide a barrier against harmful bacteria naturally because when in contact with the bacteria, the chitosan ruptures the cell walls of gram negative bacteria and prohibits reproduction.
