HEMOSTEM™ Hemostatic Product

HEMOSTEM™ is made by degrading a suitable form of plant cell wall cellulose by chemical oxidation, and neutralization to the calcium salt, with de-polymerization by irradiation.  The resulting pale yellow-cream to buff colored powder is composed of microfibers of about 10 micron diameter and 100 micron in length.  Containing by weight between 10 to 18% of carboxyl group and 4 to 8% calcium respectively with reference to dried substance.  The suitable form of cellulose used is that prepared from the micronized fine seed coat fibers of the Cotton plant, Gossypium hirsutum, and other cultivated species of Gossypium.

HEMOSTEM™ is used for the control of bleeding, as capillary hemorrhaging , and serum exudating from damaged tissue wherever conventional methods of local hemostasis is difficult or impractical.

Surface hemostasis is achieved initially by the physical nature of the microfibers forming a mesh or mat absorbing and entrapping blood cells and platelets, followed by enhanced hemocoagulation, essentially due to the ‘surface effect’ of the calcium salt quickly and readily activating the blood clotting processes.

HEMOSTEM™ GAUZE
Delicately woven hemostatic gauze for wrapping around anastimoses such as those of arterial and venous vessels and the digestive tract.  PRESENTATION: Sterile single piece 2" x 2.75" in flat peel pouch.
HEMOSTEM™ DENTAL CUBES
Dry massed and pre-formed shapes.  Easy insertion into tooth sockets to control protracted postextractional capillary bleeding.  Each cube contains 135mg of micronized modified carboxycellulose with 25mg methycellulose and 40mg modified starch, acting as gelling and disintergrant agents.  Hemostem offers highly effective antimicrobial effects which may aid the healing process.

NOTE: HEMOSTEM 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 arteriolar or venous bleeding.
