KytoSate Engineered to Stop Femoral Bleeding


April 1, 2008

April 1, 2008 – A new high-performance bandage made from the same blood-stopping technology the U.S. Army uses in Afghanistan and Iraq was featured at ACC 2008.

When in direct contact with blood and pressure is applied — including the Femoral Artery — the KytoStat Bandage stops bleeding while sealing and protecting the wound.

The bandage comes in a variety of sizes, including 4 inches by 4 inches, 1-inch by 4 inches or 3 inches by 28 inches. The KytoStat Bandage is engineered with chitosan, a compound that is naturally occurring in shrimp shells. The proprietary manufacturing process used to create the bandage reportedly makes KytoStat 30 times more effective than leading competitors.
