FDA Clears RevMedX’s Wound Dressing for Civilians
The FDA has given its blessing to RevMedX’s XSTAT 30 wound dressing to treat adults and adolescents in the general population.
The expandable, multi-sponge dressing – used to control life-threatening bleeding from wounds in areas that a tourniquet cannot be placed, such as the groin or armpit – was previously only cleared for military use.
It is indicated for patients at high risk for immediate, life-threatening and severe hemorrhagic shock and non-compressible junctional wounds when care at emergency rooms is not available within a few minutes.
The dressing is not designed for use in certain parts of the chest, abdomen, pelvis or tissue above the collarbone. — Michael Cipriano
