The Qwick-AID® Multi-Use Sterile Bandage is an all-natural composite textile. The bandage stops vascular and capillary bleeding. The unique patented technology has a specially formulated first layer that arrests bleeding in 45 seconds while the second layer evacuates discharge from the wound, Qwick-AID® Bandages do not stick to wounds, will not create a hothouse effect, and only require re-moisturization with water to be an effective dressing for up to 3 days when a second application is required post bleeding wounds. They are the most clinically and cost effective bandage on the market today.
The application of the mixture of the two layers leads to the formation of a composite material, which consists of an alginate layer on its surface, a layer of non-woven material with alginate distributed inside, and a layer of alginate-free textile material.
The alginate layer swells up when applied onto the bleeding wound. The absorbed fluid partially migrates to regions outside the wound, thus increasing viscosity in those regions. That leads to the formation of the primary clot (thrombus).
The plasma is absorbed and filtered by the hydrophilic textile material, with concentration processes on the surface and blood cell aggregation.
A distinctive weight relationship found between the ingredients makes it possible to effectively increase the coagulability of the blood, maintaining sufficient viscosity in the wound to facilitate clotting.Summation of Benefits:
