The Action Dressing

  • Overview
    Velseal™-T is a sponge based dressing for control of traumatic bleeding. The ready-to-use patch consists of sponge impregnated with clot promoting & stabilizing agents. These constituents are held in the vesicular voids of the matrix, on the internal surface of sponge. This means they are able to act rapidly when blood flows into the dressing. Once in contact with blood, the dressing enables sealing and stabilization of wound surfaces.
  • Properties
    • A Novel absorbent dressing containing blood clot promoting & stabilizing agents
    • The entire area is porous providing a high surface area for the clotting process to occur
    • Used on external wounds to stop even severe arterial and venous bleeding within 4-6 minutes
    • Non cytotoxic, non irritant & non sensitizer
    • Biocompatible and Bioabsorbable
    • Non-adherent
    • No danger of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) as constituents are not absorbed in the blood stream
  • Action
    • The interconnected small voids of porous PEC sponge provides a very large surface area for the flowing blood and hold the natural clotting agents
    • A large surface area and micro-areas exert a pseudo-catalytic effect on blood clotting
    • The body’s own whole blood coagulation cascade - is activated
    • The blood clotting process occurs within the voids
    • Further in the presence of impregnated naturally derived clot promoting and stabilizing agents intensifies the clotting action & stabilizes the clot
    • Natural blood clotting continues right up to the injured blood vessel without affecting the flow characteristics of the circulating blood

    • Accidents, Trauma and emergency
  • Precautions
    • For external use only
    • The dressing should remain in position until the wound can be treated properly
    • Do not use if pack is damaged/or content is wet. VelSeal-T is supplied as a sterile, single-use dressing. Do not re-use. Do not re-sterilize
    • If the first attempt at application of the VelSealTM-T is not successful, do not re-apply the same dressing, instead obtain a new dressing for re-application
    • VelSealTM-T must be positioned properly to the bleeding wound /actual source of the bleed. Use promptly after opening. Don’t keep open for long time as it may absorb moisture and change property/reduce efficacy.
