Application That’s Easy!
Applying HEMOBLAST™ Bellows to a targeted bleeding site is extremely simple with 4 easy steps:
Blot Excess Blood
Blot excess blood from the target bleeding site with gauze/pad or suction. The wound surface should be as dry as possible just before application.
Apply HEMOBLAST™ Bellows
Apply HEMOBLAST™ Bellows to the bleeding site by compressing the bellows. Enough implant material (multiple layers, if needed) should be applied to cover the entire source of bleeding.
Hold Wet Lap Pad
Immediately apply wound-appropriate pressure using a wet laparotomy pad. Hold for approximately 3 minutes. Gently lift the laparotomy pad and inspect the area.
Once hemostasis is achieved, excess powder should be removed from the site of application by irrigation and aspiration.
