”Bleeding is a hidden complication in surgeries. It escalates cost and time in OR”

The Axiostat® Vascular haemostatic dressing is intended to control bleeding from vascular access sites. It is proven to achieve quick haemostasis on patients at high-risk of uncontrolled bleeding due to the blood thinners/anticoagulants during sheath removal.

Also, Axiostat® has worked effectively on PCI, Angiogram, VCD and various other cases on both Paediatric and adult patients.
