BLOODCARE wad is a sterile haemostatic preparation based on oxidised-cellulose.

BLOODCARE wad is a fibrous material, made of natural origin from highest Alpha grade selected cotton.

The structure of the material allows to grasp with forceps any amount needed.

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

The material structure provides accelerated haemostasis due to its higher absorbability.

Special characteristics

  • the structure of the material provides a big advantage to grasp any amount needed
  • it is also possible to fix it by stitching
  • it has 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 secondary toxic effects

Dimensions

BLOODCARE wad is manufactured in two different dispensing forms which can cover any need for an effective haemostasis in different types of surgery. It can be also cut to a required size and shape for use in a particular surgical procedure.

Sizes available:
50 x 50 mm, 50 x 25 mm

BLOODCARE wad 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
  • suited for hard to reach and/or irregularly shaped bleeding sites
  • unwanted dispersal does not occur

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
  • entirely eliminated from the body within 7 -21 days, leaving no deposit behind it in tissues and cells

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS: BACTERICIDAL FEATURES

  • due to the structure of the material it provides a big advantage to grasp any amount needed
  • it is also possible to fix it by stitching
  • it has 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 secondary toxic effects

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 many areas of surgery: general surgery, cardiovascular surgery, digestive surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, orthopaedics, gynaecology, urology, dentistry and in other surgical areas
  • is in particular suitable for neurosurgical interventions
  • 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
  • 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
  • it is easy to form or cut the material into a required shape for optimal handling and adjustability to the bleeding surface
  • only necessary size/volume could be applied
  • the material provides maximum flexibility enabling an excellent adaptation to anatomical structures

METHOD OF USE: IMMEDIATE STERILE APPLICATION

  • open the outer/secondary packaging, and take the inner/primary packaging out
  • take the sterile piece out of the primary package
  • adjust/cut by sterile instruments to the requested application size if desirable
  • apply onto the bleeding area
  • suture to the tissue if recommended
  • do not remove – 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

Dimensions and Packaging

DIMENSIONS: MOST OFTEN USED SIZE

  • is manufactured in two different dispensing forms which can cover any need for an effective haemostasis in different types of surgery
  • individual pieces of active fibrous material are always with a maximum width of 50 mm whereas its length could be adjusted to two sizes: 50 mm and 25 mm
  • can be cut to size to a required shape for use in a particular surgical procedure
  • handy group packaging (15 pieces in each)

Dimensions:
50 x 50 mm, 50 x 25 mm

PACKING: TIGHTLY SEALED ALU FOIL

  • packed into double sterile packaging
  • the primary/inner packaging is an Alu foil having a peel-effect in one side to enable an easy opening
  • the primary/inner packaging is tightly sealed in order to protect the material against humidity
  • the secondary/outer packaging shall be one-side transparent, with a peel-effect in one side for an easy opening

SHELF-LIFE: AVAILABILITY FOR 3 YEARS

  • shelf-life for 3 years
  • it should be stored at controlled temperatures (preferably between -20 oC to +25 oC)
  • for a long-term storage, keep below 20 oC
