INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze quickly controls and stops bleeding. INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is made from cotton, and is 100% plant-based with no animal products, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction or irritation. The 2x2 gauze pad is designed for dialysis patients, as it controls the bleeding quickly and easily.
When INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze is applied to a bleeding surface or wound with slight direct pressure, and comes in contact with blood, the blood is instantly absorbed. As the blood is absorbed, and INSTA-STOP expands, it blocks the end of the blood capillary from the injury, which controls and stops bleeding and protects the wound.
INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is ideal for patients who are taking anti-coagulation medication, patients taking medication with anti-coagulation side effects, and for patients with blood coagulation disorders and reduction in blood platelets.
Features and benefits:
INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze products are over-the-counter and have a 3-year shelf life (until opened). For more information, or to purchase INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze, please call or email us at the numbers below.

The Redsense safety device is designed to detect venous needle dislodgement during hemodialysis, for Home/Self and Clinical use.
Redsense consists of two parts: a sensor patch and an alarm unit. An infrared signal is transmitted from the alarm unit to the sensor patch using fibre optic cable. In the event of bleeding, inner layers of the patch smear blood over the optical sensor, which triggers the alarm.
The Redsense safety device is the results of close co-operation between medical staff and engineers. Dialysis equipment today is required to have a system which protects the patient from blood loss due to dislodgement of the venous needle. The commonly accepted solution is to monitor by the venous pressure alarm but a better solution has long been requested. Even with the routine supervision of medical staff still the venous needle can become dislodged: the dialysis machine will then continue to draw blood from the patient’s artery however not returning blood in the loop circuit as the venous needle has become dislodged and the patient’s blood ends up elsewhere. If undetected, this blood loss can have very serious consequences in only a few minutes. Redsense safety device provides a solution to this problem and detects venous needle dislodgement instantaneously; it only takes a few milliliters of blood on the sensor patch to sound the alarm.
Optimizing safety conditions for home hemodialysis users is a core ambition for Redsense Medical.
Redsense Medical has offices in Sweden and in the U.S. (Chicago, IL). For more information: www.redsensemedical.com.Redsense Medical Ltd
