How to use the Patch
The Hematrix Patch comes ready to use and can be removed from the new blister pack in an instant: after all, every second counts in case of severe bleeding.
Subsequent care of the wound can be performed by the paramedic on the scene or in hospital.
It is important to press the patch firmly over the wound for at least 5 minutes, depending on the severity of bleeding. Simply placing it over the wound and securing it with adhesive tape or bandaging is not sufficient! The same goes for both arterial and venous bleeding.
