The company "Inmed" has developed a new hemostatic agent

NPK Inmed, at a roundtable discussion at the Army-2015 forum, presented a means to stop bleeding based on chitosan nanofibers, designed specifically for the armed forces, reports MIC with reference to the press service of the enterprise.

The company "Inmed" has developed a new hemostatic agent

“Bleeding when injured, accompanied by significant blood loss, is one of the main causes of death during military conflicts, as well as in the event of natural, man-made disasters. The timely effective stopping of bleeding at the prehospital stage is one of the main issues of emergency medicine. Pressing dressings in case of damage to large veins and arteries are ineffective, imposition of a hemostat is not always possible (for example, when injuring adjacent areas of the body or in the neck). Inmed's specialists have developed Hemoflex Combat, a hemostatic agent made from polymer nanofibers, which is intended to stop all types of bleeding when injured. ”, Says the release.

It is noted that the new tool “stops arterial, venous and capillary bleeding”, in its composition “chitosan is used - a natural, biocompatible polymer”.

The company continues to improve Gemoflex Kombat with the active participation of military medics and scientists.

“The main cause of death for the wounded on the battlefield is continued external bleeding. Stopping him quickly and effectively before a person receives medical care is the first task, and it is often the injured person who solves it. We have already conducted all the necessary tests that showed the effectiveness of Hemoflex Combat when used in emergency situations. We are currently working to improve the efficiency of Gemoflex Kombat without increasing its cost, which should contribute to the speedy introduction of the product to the market. ”- said the executive director of the company, Alexander Vnuchkin.

        About a year has passed since the presentation of the concept of the hemostatic dressing for the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. And now there is a full-fledged medical device.
        Very well, it is necessary to put this kit into the civilian sphere for resuscitation specialists. This thing will save many lives.

        We are significantly behind Western and Israeli development of hemostatic agents. Our security forces independently order them through intermediaries in NATO countries and Israel, they get it because six months before the expiration date, their military sells these drugs to anyone who wants and buy new ones.
        The fact that we are successfully developing in Russia in this direction is very good news. Many lives will be saved.

        I have been using chitosan gel for many years.

        It perfectly heals wounds, relieves inflammation, irritation - anything. Creates a thin protective pleasant (not like BF) film. Really a panacea.
        But ..
        Chitosan is an amino sugar, a derivative of a linear polysaccharide, macromolecules consist of randomly linked β- (1-4) D-glucosamine units and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. One of the sources of chitosan is shells of crustaceans.
        - maybe it's stupidly ground snails.
        As soon as you hear
        , you begin to twitch. God grant that something truly breakthrough is created, and really advanced in technology, and not noodles to the ears of the consumer
        has no analogues

        News is definitely a plus.

      I really hope that this will NOT become useful for our aircraft, emergency situations etc. let it be better without war.

      много вопросов есть по этому средству: как его удалять? насколько по времени обеспечивается гемостаз? ведь если мы "закупориваем" данным средством магистральный сосуд - то после доставки пострадавшего на этап специализированной помощи, необходимо будет восстанавливать кровоснабжение поврежденного участка. были уже подобные разработки и на основе коллоидов, по типу силика-геля, и клеевые, по типу супер-клея. особо не прижились. будему надеятся, что данная разработка это действительно работающая и нужная вещь. такую штуку в аптечку автомобилиста положить - милое дело!

        Давным-давно с немецкой машиной при покупке, попалась полная аптечка такая здоровенная, там была упаковка с такими пластырями похожими на губку толщиной пару мм с каким то гелем прозрачным размером 5х10см прим., каждая в вакуум. упаковке. При корявом переводом там и значилось "кровеостанавливающая-обеззараживающая прокладка для открытых ран. под бинт" ( точно уж не помню перевод) куча примеров и размеров и видов ран описание с картинками было.
        So in the first-aid kits there was such a pity, not with us .... but the first-aid kit with the car was gone, there was no opportunity and time to try the remedy. And thank God! )))

        Didn’t you cut out the appendix during the Soviet era?

        They didn’t cut it out. Now it's scary, suddenly the appendix will be mixed up with something similar recourse
        It’s time to learn from
        Surgeon Leonid Rogozov cut out appendicitis on his own
        It was hard to believe such a miracle. But Rogozov withstood the one and a half hour procedure, sometimes even smiled at his inexperienced assistants and cheered. The Soviet people surprised the world for the second time in a year. On April 12, Yuri Gagarin went into space, literally a month later, on April 30, Rogozov operated on himself.

      Those who do it every day are able to. So Denis is not all lost.
      But to impose a tourniquet, everyone should know and be able to competently. A typical mistake: they knotted a knot and are surprised that the blood does not stop. If you put a tourniquet from a hand-held rope, a belt, put in a stick, screwdriver any lever and twist until the bleeding stops. It is advisable to put a towel under the tourniquet so as not to damage the soft tissues. Be sure on a piece of paper at what time. The second mistake is to impose a tourniquet on the lower leg or forearm - there the bones on will completely compress all the arteries and their collaterals. If there is nothing, at least press down with a fist and hold until they are taken to the hospital.
      We don’t have any kind of social advertising, but how to put a tourniquet on what to do with a burn, a tick bite, a dog, fainting, drowning, respiratory arrest and cardiac activity, no. Why?

          A healthy young father of three children was brought on duty on duty, which theoretically could have been saved if the people around had correctly put on a tourniquet or at least someone would have guessed that the femoral artery was damaged and simply pressed with a fist.
          In fact, clinical death at the gates of the hospital, critical blood loss, did not have time to do anything.
          That's how much time has passed, I can’t forget. hi

    At the first stages of domestic development, in the field of hemostatics, a similar product stopped bleeding, but often caused a burn. I wonder if this flaw has been fixed? Such means of salvation are needed as air, and not only in the sun!

    Любой коагулянт крови создаёт сгустки, читай эмболы. При обширных кровотечениях на крупных сосудах действие не мнговенно. Стенозы ниже места кровотечения вероятны в любых местах, вплоть до "кристаллизации" венозной системы с "залётом" искусственных бляшек свёрнутой крови до сердца. "Чудо средство" не заменит грамотной первой помощи. В условиях госпиталя хирург будет сшивать сосуды (основные хотя бы) и шибко "рад" будет, если сосуды забиты коагулянтом и свернувшейся кровью. И наверное уже помочь ничем не сможет, кроме как отрезать некроз. С точки зрения военно-полевой хирургии, если разорвано что-то жизненно важное, то "клеем" не замазать, только навредить. На капилярных кровотечениях может и сработает, но больше "заклеит" того, чего не следует. А ещё магнитные накладочки бывают на бензопровод, говорят, что на 30% расход топлива снижают! А Нобелевский комитет-то и не знает! И "изобретатели" за лямом зелени тоже не спешат- всё ж для людей и за бесплатно! А говорят,что безсеребренники вымерли!

    Хорошо бы не только, чтобы это средство пошло в армию, но и чтобы военнослужащих нормально обучали хотя бы базовым методам оказания первой помощи и самопомощи. Ув. Денис Мокрушин недавно проводил опрос на эту тему - большинство служивших в недавнее время такой подготовки не получало. Подготовка - на уровне "with bleeding from the head - apply a tourniquet to the neck" (и дублировать голосом лай караульной собаки). smile

    And then, after all, Celox is a good thing, but if used incorrectly, it is very dangerous. As, however, and all means: even a simple tourniquet without a note on the application time is a possible way to necrosis.

    For self-rescue or rescue of one who is unconscious is a good idea. But there is a moment - any bleeding must take place, blood must flow out, and it is better if it happens naturally, but for warriors who already have something to do besides wounds, you need a complex 1) disinfection + 2) adhesion of the wound.

    Today, the American hemostatic agent is part of individual first-aid kits for all members of special forces and combat clashes that respect themselves and their lives (performing special tasks related to life-threatening conditions). The Ukrainian Armed Forces have an excellent Ukrainian hemostatic agent, Sich-Turnstile. Glory to Gd and in Russia appeared own hemostatic agents.
