Hemostatic dressing material REVUL®
Hemostatic dressing material REVUL® is a highly effective hemostatic agent made of natural chitosan designed to stop various types of bleeding. REVUL® works independently of the blood clotting processes in the body. Haemostatic effect is associated with binding of positively charged elements of the medical device with negatively charged red blood cells. When contacted with blood, REVUL® facilitates absorption of the blood liquids and forms a single gel/jelly-like mass, which helps to stop bleeding.

Method of administration
- Check the shelf-life and packaging integrity of the medical device.
- Open the REVUL®
- Tap the wound dry with REVUL® bandage at the source of bleeding. DO NOT THROW AWAY THE EMPTY BAG!
- Press a bandage or gauze sponge tightly to the wound for 5 minutes. If the bleeding persists, hold for another 5 minutes.
