Benefits of BleedSolv gauze for dressing wounds

BleedSolv haemostatic dressings are safe to use, fast acting and made from natural materials. They are the superior choice for controlling bleeding from trauma wounds when direct pressure and a tourniquet is not enough.

Reasons to choose BleedSolv gauze for dressing wounds:

  • TGA approved
  • All natural – no chemicals, additives or foreign bodies
  • No thrombin or collagen
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Soluble
  • Easy to use
  • Efficient and fast-acting

BleedSolv is made from all natural materials, with no added chemicals or additives. It breaks down into water and carbohydrates which means you don’t need to disturb the blood clot that has formed. This promotes faster healing and better recovery. Unlike other haemostatic materials, there is also no need for debridement at hospital after using BleedSolv haemostatic gauze.

How does haemostatic gauze work?

BleedSolv haemostatic gauze is a collagen-like natural substance made from chemically treated cellulose. When it comes in contact with blood, the gauze expands to 3-4 times its original size and converts to a gel-like substance. The gel helps control bleeding by creating a physical barrier as well as encouraging clot formation at the wound site.

The clotting factors in BleedSolv activate even through hair, around teeth and into exposed fractures, conforming to the wound. Thanks to its bacteriostatic properties, BleedSolv helps keep the area sterile and reduces the risk of infection. Gradually, the gauze breaks down into water and carbohydrates without disturbing the clotting that has already formed.

When to use BleedSolv haemostatic dressings

Controlling blood loss after a traumatic injury is critical, and often means the difference between life and death. Blood loss is a major cause of trauma fatalities – around 40% of trauma deaths are the result of haemorrhage and haemorrhagic shock.

According to guidelines from the Australian Resuscitation Council, if direct pressure does not stop the bleeding, other methods should be used.

The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends using haemostatic gauze for severe and life-threatening bleeding when:

  • the bleeding can’t be stopped by direct pressure and is in a location where using a tourniquet is unsuitable.
  • the bleeding hasn’t been fully controlled by the use of a tourniquet.
  • the bleeding is on an arm or leg but there is no tourniquet available.

BleedSolv haemostatic dressings can be used on any part of the body to manage blood loss. That includes areas that are difficult to apply first aid such as the face, scalp wounds and extremity lacerations. BleedSolv works effectively to stop profuse, persistent and oozing blood flow which can be otherwise hard to treat.
