About HEMOBLAST

HEMOBLAST™ Bellows is a hemostatic product used to control bleeding in a broad range of open and minimally invasive surgical procedures, including laparoscopy.

Uncontrolled bleeding is a major surgical complication associated with higher mortality, longer hospitalization and higher rates of transfusions and reoperations. Beyond its impact on patient’s health, this major complication causes excess costs in all surgical specialties and is a burden for hospital budgets across the globe. HEMOBLAST™ Bellows is the only surgical hemostatic agent approved by the FDA based on the validated SPOT GRADE™ Surface Bleeding Severity Scale (SBSS), which demonstrates the ability to control a range of bleeding from minimal (oozing), mild (pooling) and moderate (flowing) bleeding. HEMOBLAST™ Bellows is proven to control bleeding with flow rates up to 117 mL per minute. Due to its efficacy, versatility and ease of use, HEMOBLAST™ Bellows is quickly becoming a popular choice amongst U.S. and European surgeons looking for new options to control surgical bleeding challenges.
