XStat® Hemostatic Device for non-compressible junctional haemorrhage

Record ID 32016000451
Authors' objectives: XStat® Hemostatic Device, developed by RevMedx, Inc., is a syringe-like device that injects small, expandable, haemostatic sponges designed to stop high-flow arterial bleeding from non-compressible junctional wounds in the groin or axilla (the joint where the arm connects to the shoulder). The device is intended for use in adults and adolescents in pre-hospital settings. The wound can be plugged in less than 20 seconds allowing haemostasis and blood clotting to begin around the sponges, without any additional manual pressure.
