BloodSTOP Hemostatic Gauze Granted FDA Approval
The LifeScience PLUS Inc. BloodSTOP product is a high-tech bandage that interacts with platelets to form a clear gel that instantaneously stops bleeding, according to its manufacturer.
Made from natural cellulose, the hypoallergenic gauze is completely water-soluble and easily washes off without causing additional trauma to the wound area. BloodSTOP can easily be cut to fit difficult areas such as the mouth and nose. Also, because the gauze is transparent, medical professionals can easily monitor the wound. FDA approved for external use, BloodSTOP can also be used to stop bleeding from deep lacerations. The product also recently received CE Mark certification in Europe.
