WoundClot™ is a bio-absorbable hemostat that is approved for bleeding treatment. It is a cellulose-based product designed with an entirely new molecular structure. The product is produced with a unique non-oxidized manufacturing process allowing the gel formation and expansion of the product upon the absorption of blood. Upon the placement of WoundClot™ dressing on the bleeding site, the products unique gel harnesses the hydration forces between the mucosal layer and itself which results in a strong physical attraction that leads to the adherence of the product to the tissue. The stronger the bleeding pressures in the wound, the stronger the attraction. RX WoundClot™ Hemostatic Gauze is intended to be used as a topical dressing for local management of bleeding wounds, such as cuts, lacerations and abrasions, and for use as a temporary treatment of severely bleeding wounds, such as surgical wounds (operative, postoperative, donor sites, dermatological) and traumatic injuries. The product can absorb up to 2,500% of its own weight without separating or dissolving for an extended period of time. This unique gel structure along with its new molecular design harnesses applied physics, biology, physiology, and chemistry to achieve all these properties.

INSTRUCTIONS: Open packet and remove Woundclot™ Hemostatic Gauze. Hold by the pointed end and place the gauze gently into the wound – let the gauze soak in blood while applying light constant pressure. Place a sponge or general dressing on the WoundClot™ Hemostatic Gauze and apply constant pressure to the wound area until bleeding stops. If bleeding persists, continue to apply pressure (If needed, apply more WoundClot™ gauze on top of the existing one.)
REMOVAL: Once Hemostasis is achieved, remove by saturating the gauze with water or saline solution, then gently remove any excess gauze material away from the wound.
