Vascular Solutions introduces new hemostatic bandage
Vascular Solutions has launched its D-Stat Dry Wrap hemostatic bandage, a pre-cut version of its D-Stat Dry hemostat designed to control bleeding around indwelling lines.

The D-Stat Dry Wrap is the latest addition to Vascular Solutions’ line of D-Stat hemostasis products, which use thrombin to control bleeding. A component of the clotting cascade, the company said the thrombin cleaves fibrinogen to fibrin, enhancing the body’s own mechanism to produce a clot. D-Stat Dry Wrap contains the same thrombin activity level as the original D-Stat Dry, and comes complete with a clear adhesive bandage  for continuous site monitoring after hemostasis is achieved.
