The Hematrix Patch stops arterial and venous bleeding within minutes so that prolonged compression is not necessary. Rapid blood clotting means that the wound can be treated immediately:
The Hematrix Patch is an innovative new wound dressing which stops even severe arterial bleeding after a few minutes. The wound dressing is coated with clotting agents which rapidly react with the blood’s natural coagulation system after injury or surgery. The blood clot immediately formed against the flow of blood seals the injured blood vessels and closes the wound, thus stopping the bleeding within a short space of time.
