BACKGROUND We have previously identified a granular zeolite hemostat (ZH) as an effective agent for control of severe bleeding, and it is currently being used by the US troops in the battlefield. ZH causes an exothermic reaction on application, which theoretically can be decreased by altering its chemical composition or changing its physical properties. However, the effect of these alterations on the hemostatic efficacy is unknown. We tested modified zeolites and a chitosan based dressing… CONTINUE READING
