Velseal™-Patch is an optimal haemostatic dressing to control bleeding Post-Renal Dialysis. The ready to use dressing consists of a polymeric haemostatic pad on non-woven fabric coated with adhesive. The novel haemostatic patch is impregnated with clot promoting and clot stabilizing agents. When applied, the VELSEAL-PATCH fastens the blood clotting process reducing the time required for clot formation. It thereby prevents the excessive bleeding post renal dialysis.
A Novel dressing with polymeric haemostatic pad to control bleeding at dialysis puncture sites
Highly porous in nature and absorbs fluid 12-15 times of its weight
Prevents the loss of natural clotting factors to initiate the clotting cascade
Adhesive is non-irritant and gentle to the skin
Used for haemodialysis patients
The interconnected small voids of porous PEC sponge provides a very large surface area for the flowing blood and prevent the loss of natural clotting factors to initiate the clotting cascade
The pad expands on contact with blood to 12-15 times its original size
The blood clotting process occurs within the voids which then travels towards the puncture site
Further, the presence of impregnated naturally derived clotting factors & stabilizer intensifies the clotting action. The clot stabilizing agent prevents the disintegration of clot formed
Natural blood clotting continues to the injured blood vessel without affecting flow characteristics of circulating blood
VELSEAL-PATCH is intended to be used as a haemostatic dressing for Post Renal Dialysis patients.
STEP 1: Open the pack and take out the patch.
STEP 2: Remove the paper film 1 followed by paper film 2.
STEP 3: Apply the Velseal-Patch immediately after removing the catheter such that the haemostatic pad is over the puncture site and the sides of the patch get adhered to the skin.
