FAST AND EFFECTIVE. ABSORBS 40-50 TIMES OF ITS OWN WEIGHT. SAVES VALUABLE SURGICAL AND ANAESTHETIC TIME. SURGISPON is a sterile hemostatic absorbable gelatin sponge made of pure pharmaceutical gelatine (lyophilized hydrolyzed collagen) foam, which gives it a uniform porosity & reacts neutrally. The dried foam is cut, packaged and sterilised using gamma radiation. SURGISPON is immediately available for use in the operating theatre and does not require any sterilisation by dry heat or autoclaving.
Soak the cube in sterile saline solution or use dry. If used dry, the sponge is slightly compressed. The sponges must be applied to a bleeding area under light pressure for one or two minutes until the bleeding stops. If used wet, withdraw SURGISPON cubes and squeeze thoroughly between gloved fingers to expel air bubbles, replace in saline and keep there until needed. When bleeding is controlled, the cubes can be left in situ.
