High-tech sponge can save lives in less than 20 seconds

News Summary:

What if a small sponge could mean the difference between life and death?

News Content:

XSTAT technology can plug a gunshot wound within a mere 20 seconds.

The leading cause of death on the battlefield is uncontrolled external hemorrhage.

XSTAT helps solve this problem and has been used by the military for more than a year to treat wounds inflicted on the battlefield – but now the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cleared the technology to be used to save lives on U.S. soil.

Quick control of severe bleeding is absolutely critical to saving lives and preventing shock, whether at home or in the war zone.

According to the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research, 30 to 40 percent of civilian deaths by severe injury are the result of hemorrhaging. Of those deaths, up to 56 percent of the patients bled out before reaching a hospital and the treatment they need.

Bullets, knives or shrapnel can cause penetrating wounds in junctional areas. Junctional wounds are areas where the legs and arms meet the torso.

How does it work?

Think of the children’s toy where you drop a capsule into bath water and the sponge rapidly expands, transforming into something cool like a dinosaur.

Say someone has a gunshot wound or is a stabbing victim ... first responders could immediately deploy XSTAT to buy the victim critical time to get to surgical response.

XSTAT is very easily applied. The delivery device looks like a fat 30 mm diameter syringe. Inside the transparent tube there are compressed sponges that look like pellets.

The syringe injects these tiny, highly absorbent, sponges. When the sponges make contact with blood or fluid inside a wound they expand to up to 10 times their original size. Rather than getting pushed out as they expand, the sponges continue to cling to the moisture.
