General Introduction HEMA LIMIT powder is a haemostatic preparation in a STERILE powder form, with the active substance based on oxidised cellulose and is destined to arrest capillary and minor venous bleeding and bleeding from parenchymatous organs at surgical interventions. Special Characteristics Due to the content of carboxyl groups (16-24%) and calcium ions, it supports the biological healing process, and has the proven features of being bactericidal and bacteriostatic. Areas of Application HEMA LIMIT powder is suitable for use in general surgery, digestive surgery, plastic surgery, orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, gynaecology, urology, and all other branches of surgery, traumatology and stomatology. It could be also applied into cavities (after extirpation of tumours) as well as endoscopy interventions or dental praxis. Dosage/Method of Use After opening the outer packaging and undoing the cover apply a thin layer of powder on to a bleeding area by repeatedly pressing the sides of the bottle. The powder that does not get saturated with blood, is recommended to be removed. The powder layer saturated with blood becomes red to dark brown that need not be removed - it will be gradually absorbed. In case of an application into a cavity or small area, use the applicator by fixing it on to the sprinkler. If the blood still oozes slightly through, but the powder is not washed off, apply another layer, or if possible press the layer down by sterile devices until the haemostasis is initiated. If needed for a superficial treatment, use a cushion plaster or dressing.
