EMERGENCY BLEEDING CONTROL WITH HAEMOSTATIC DRESSING
Axiostat is a sterile, non-absorbable haemostatic dressing intended to control bleeding within minutes of application by providing an active mechanical barrier to the wound site.
The emergency variant is designed to control moderate to severe bleeding due to traumatic injuries such as accidents. It is ready to use and can be cut to suit different wound sizes. It can be delivered through a pool of blood and is simple to apply and remove by a non-medical first responder.
Axiostat works on the principle of adhesion due to charge. Axiostat made with 100% chitosan has been designed to be positively charged and blood cells carry a net negative charge. When blood comes in contact with Axiostat, oppositely charged components are attracted and form bonds. This results in a strong adhesive seal that acts as a mechanical barrier preventing blood from leaking out.

Axiostat Mehcanism of Action
Frequently Asked Questions
Axiostat® is a sterile, non-absorbable haemostatic dressing intended to control profuse bleeding within minutes of application by providing an active mechanical barrier to the wound site.Axiostat® stops moderate to severe bleeding due to cuts, abrasions, lacerations, venous/arterial punctures and more. Mechanism of action is such that Axiostat® is an extremely positive dressing that becomes very sticky in the presence of negatively charged blood and thus seals the wound area.
Axiostat® is ready to use and can be cut to suit different wound sizes. They can be delivered through a pool of blood and is simple to apply and remove by a non-medical first responder. Axiostat® also stops bleeding faster than any available trauma haemostat. It does not have any side effects such as viral transmission (associated with Gelatin, Collagen products) or exothermic reaction (association with Kaolin/Zeolite products).
Axiostat® comes in sterile multi-layered pouches/blisters which can be easily opened using one hand. Axiostat® can be directly applied onto bleeding with palm pressure. It doesn’t require pre-mixing or preparation prior to use.
Axiostat® is made of a naturally occurring polymer known as Chitosan (Poly [β-(1,4)-2-amino- 2-deoxy- D- glucosamine],) which is a biocompatible polysaccharide extracted from endoskeleton of cephalopods like squid. They are rigorously processed and purified prior to fabricating into dressing and is terminally sterilized using Gamma irradiation.
Axiostat® can be kept on wound up to 48 hours.
