Chitin – a natural polysaccharide (Singla and Chawla, 2001), is a homo-polymer composed of the glucose derivative N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc). It is the structural element in the exoskeleton of crustaceans (i.e. crabs, shrimp) and the cell walls of fungi. Chitin sourced for OMNI-STAT is derived from shrimp and undergoes deproteinization as part of early processing.

Partial deacetylation of chitin results in the production of chitosan, a polysaccharide comprising copolymers of the amino sugar glucosamine and N-acetylglucomsamine (DIAGRAM AS MONOGRAPH p13)

Further proprietary processing of chitosan leads to the optimization and formation of a unique chitosan based hemostatic agent.

How does Omni-Stat work?

OMNI-STAT works by linking to the surface of red blood cells.  It absorbs fluid in the blood, swells, gels and sticks together to create a robust mechanical gel-like clot that plugs the bleeding source and seals the wound. (Millner et al, 2011)

 

 

Studies support that this mechanism works independently of classical coagulation pathways and has been shown to work even in the presence of clotting dysfunction. (Millner et al, 2010)

OMNI-STAT is easily removed from the wounds after bleeding has stopped. Any residual material can be irrigated away with water or saline.
