HemCon Strip PRO a convenient user friendly hemostatic bandage able to effectively control bleeding for smaller wounds such as dialysis access sites and catheter sites. Bandage seals the wound, shortening the manual compression time, saving the staff and physician time. The bandage also offers an antibacterial barrier against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative organisms, including antibiotic resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterococcus faecalis (VRE) and Acinetobacter baumanii. Only single strains of most species mentioned have been studied.
