Loss of blood, hemorrhaging, is a main cause of death, second only to trauma injuries. The hemostatic HemCon Bandage PRO provides a patient with the time needed to reach care or gain the critical time needed to clot. The HemCon Bandage PRO provides the medical professional a solution that is quick-acting, natural, localized and effective. In addition to providing hemostasis, HemCon dressings also offer an antibacterial barrier against a wide range of microorganisms including MRSA, VRE, A. baumannii (only single strains of most species have been studied).
Available Size & SKU:
The HemCon Bandage PRO is a hemostatic dressing for external, temporary control of severely bleeding wounds, intended for emergency use. The HemCon Bandage PRO also controls bleeding in patients following hemodialysis and is indicated for the control of bleeding from the skin at percutaneous needle access, vascular access, and percutaneous catheter access sites.
