Use in Operating Rooms
The operating room involves a team of highly skilled clinicians where every minute counts in helping patients undergoing surgery. Controlling bleeding with a surgical hemostat is quick and efficient and helps minimise blood loss and allows more efficient use of operating room time (Journal of Woundcare). Many common wounds like necrotic and chronic wounds requiring particularly aggressive post sharp debridement require a fast acting surgical hemostat like OMNI-STAT®.
OMNI-STAT® is a topical temporary external hemostat that helps rapidly and safely stop bleeding. It is effective for patients using common anti-coagulant drugs (Millner, 2010, Koksal, 2011 & Data on file). Rapid hemostasis may allow for shorter patient operating times leading to better management of valuable staff resources and also helping to reduce blood loss and any associated risks.
