How to Use

  • Cut a piece of Gelostat sponge to the desired size depending on the bleeding area.
  • Immerse Gelostat in physiological salt solution or thrombin or antibiotic solution of desired concentration, as required. However, squeeze the soaked sponge before use so that the gelatin sponge regains its original size and shape.
  • Apply Gelostat to the bleeding area for a few seconds, using light pressure with a gauze sponge previously dampened with drops of physiological salt solution.
  • Gauze sponge can be then be easily removed from Gelostat absorbable gelatin sponge.
  • Use suction, if necessary, to hasten haemostasis with the formation of clot. While using suction, interpose gauze compress, previously dampened with physiological saline, between the suction tube & gelatin sponge.
  • Gauze compress can be removed after achieving haemostasis.
