Hemcon Expands Hemostasis Line

Hemcon announced Tuesday that its flexible hemostatic dressing HemCon Patch is now available for clinical settings. The dressing can be used for external, temporary control of bleeding during interventional and diagnostic cardiac catheterization, interventional radiology, electrophysiology and dialysis access procedures. Portland-based HemCon said offering diagnostic and interventional patients a quick, safe and comfortable post-procedural experience, the HemCon Patch delivers a flexible hemostatic solution where rapid arterial hemostasis is critically important to ensure quality care and safety. It reliably and quickly stops bleeding, minimizes risk of artery damage and frees up medical personnel. As one of the only hemostatic products to obtain an FDA antibacterial barrier claim, the HemCon Patch provides a barrier against a wide spectrum of micro-organisms, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterococcus faecalis (VRE) and Acinetobacter baumannii.
