1. Ease to place
Medicom SafeGauze HemoStat is made from carboxymethyl cellulose, a regenerated cellulose. The gauze instantly absorbs fluids and turns to gel within seconds, making it easy to place in the socket.
2. Conveniently sized
The four-ply, 0.75 by 0.75-inch (1.9 by 1.9 cm) fabric sponges are size appropriate for most applications, but easily customizable.
HemoStat quickly absorbs blood or fluid from oral mucosa and the fabric quickly transforms into a clear viscous gel that is easy to place in the wound.
4. Conforms to the wound
The gelatinous mass fills and adheres to the wound, forming a tight “plug” that closes off blood vessels by sealing capillary ends and activates the body’s clotting mechanisms to stop bleeding.
5. No suturing required
Because HemoStat adheres securely in place, there is no need to suture over the dressing.
6. Promotes healing
In addition to controlling bleeding, HemoStat’s natural antibacterial properties promote wound healing.
7. All-natural and vegan
SafeGauze HemoStat is made from 100% cellulose with no animal-based products.
8. Dissolves gradually
Eventually, the gelatinous plug turns into a saline and glucose gel and dissolves.
9. Saves valuable chair time
With convenient packaging, easy placement and quick gel transformation, hemostasis occurs quickly, meaning that patients can be released almost immediately after an extraction and faster patient turnover.
10. Award-winning product
SafeGauze HemoStat won the Dental Advisor Top Product Award for hemostatic dressing in 2020 and 2021.
