BLOODCARE powder is a sterile highly efficient haemostat based on hydrogen calcium salt of oxidised cellulose.

BLOODCARE powder is a powder form of haemostat that allows to use only the amount needed, and enables precise application. With the enclosed applicator, it is suited for hard to reach bleeding sites.

The haemostatic effect of BLOODCARE powder is almost immediate, the full haemostasis is achieved by 2 minutes after application.

Special characteristics

  • it has proven bactericidal and bacteriostatic features against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative organisms, due to the presence of carboxyl groups
  • due to its ability to regulate the activity of fagocytes, it brings an effective support in healing process by protecting the site against development of secondary toxic effects
  • due to the content of Ca2+ ions and their assumed blocking effect, a partial pain relief in the site is observed without the need for local aneastetics

Dimensions

BLOODCARE powder is manufactured in different volumes  which can cover any need for an effective haemostasis in different types of surgery.

Volumes available

2 grams
3 grams
(other volumes are subject to individual agreement)

BLOODCARE powder in full details

EXCELLENT HAEMOSTATIC FEATURES: IMPROVED OPERATIVE TECHNIQUE = REDUCED COSTS

  • the haemostatic effect is almost immediate, the full haemostasis is achieved by 2 minutes after application
  • with the enclosed applicator, it is suited for hard to reach bleeding sites
  • only the amount needed could be used

TOTAL ABSORPTION: MINIMAL RISK OF POST-OPERATIVE SIDE EFFECTS

  • it is fully absorbed by 12 – 72 hours, depending on the application form and wound extent
  • it is entirely eliminated from the body within 7 – 21 days, leaving no deposit behind it in tissues and cells

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS: BACTERICIDAL FEATURES

  • it has proven bactericidal and bacteriostatic features against a wide range of gram positive nad gram negative organisms, due to the presence of carboxyl groups
  • due to its ability to regulate the activity of fagocytes, it brings an effective support in healing process by protecting the site against development of secondary toxic effects
  • due to the content of Ca2+ ions and their assumed blocking effect, a partial pain relief in the ste is observed without the need for local aneastetics
  • the powder form of the material allows to use only the amount needed

ADDITIONAL FEATURES: MAXIMUM SAFETY

  • is biocompatible, biodegradable, non-acidifying haemostat preparation of natural origin
  • is hypoallergenic – no sensitive features have been reported, no immune-reactions have been initiated, even after repeated application
  • is well tolerated by the organism and has a significant effect on healing process in wounds
  • causes no irritating reactions on the application area, no granuloms are formed
  • is an ideal alternative to bovine fibrins and collagens

Area of Application

AREAS OF APPLICATION: EXCEPTIONAL INSTRUMENT FOR ANY SURGERY

  • is suitable for use in general surgery and digestive surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, gynaecology, urology, stomatology, traumatology and all other branches of surgery
  • is in particular suitable for neurosurgical interventions, and other precise applications
  • it could be applied into cavities (after extirpation of tumors) as well as endoscopy surgical interventions
  • is also indicated for use in dental application – oral surgery, exodontia, tooth extraction and other procedures in the oral cavity
  • it finds its use at sports, gardening, or common housework where this inconvenience could occur and should be treated fast and efficiently, it could be applied on to topical wounds, such as lacerations, scratches and minor cuts
  • is suitable for use in veterinary applications, both surgical and superficial treatment

Method of Use

EASY HANDLING: CONVINCING AND RELIABLE HANDLING

  • the material could be applied immediately on to the bleeding area
  • only necessary volume could be applied
  • an enclosed applicator for fine and precise applications
  • due to its form, it provides maximum flexibility enabling an excellent adaptation to anatomical structures

METHOD OF USE: IMMEDIATE STERILE APPLICATION

  • open the outer/secondary packaging, undo the screw up cover
  • if required fix the applicator on to the sprinkler
  • apply onto the bleeding area by repeatedly pressing the bottle
  • do not remove the saturated layers – it will be fully absorbed
  • apply another layer in case the blood still oozes through

WARNING: NOT SUITABLE FOR PRESSURE BLEEDING

  • is not suitable for the control of arterial or venous pressure bleeding where appropriate prior ‘tying off’ or cautery of blood vessels must be carried out
  • it may be used to control small arterial or venous bleeding in combination with application of short time digital pressure or pressure packing
  • the material not saturated with blood is recommended to be removed due to the risk of encapsulation

Dimensions and Packaging
