FIBER COMPOSITION MATTERS – 100% OF NUSTAT DRESSING IS HEMOSTATIC

NuStat products are a comprehensive matrix of hemostatic clotting fibers that work synergistically to accelerate clot formation.

The matrix consists of two primary components; cellulose and silica-based fibers, that provide:

  • Absorption and Concentration: The cellulose component quickly absorbs excess fluid and binds red cells from the injury site, thereby concentrating the cellular and molecular mechanisms needed for effective hemostasis.
  • Activation and Attachment: The silica-based component promotes platelet activation and attachment at the wound site. This well known phenomenon is known as the glass effect, ultimately helping to accelerate the body's natural formation of a platelet plug.
