Stops bleeding – and disappears

GELITA’s haemostatic sponges, also frequently used in dental medicine, are virtually indispensable in hospital surgeries. Produced by foaming an aqueous gelatine solution that is then dried and hardened, these sponges staunch the flow of blood and are completely resorbed during the wound-healing process. But they’re not just for major incidents: For home use and small wounds, sterile-packed gelatine sponges help to stop bleeding. Loving wives use them to treat their husband’s little shaving accidents, and fathers use them on their toddler’s bleeding knees after playing soccer on the porch.
