New technology quickly stops serious bleeding
A new technology to stop severe bleeding injuries has been developed by researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The technology is a nanofiber-based sponge capable of rapidly absorbing blood and other fluids while still retaining its overall shape and size.
The nanofiber sponge absorbs more fluid, more quickly than traditional gauze products and gelatin sponges currently on the market.
The nanofiber sponges were tested in a large animal liver injury model. In the tests, the nanofiber sponges effectively stopped the catastrophic bleeding, and greatly reduced overall blood loss.
The new nanofiber sponge will be a useful addition to surgical suites, emergency rooms and the battlefield.
