Tempe, Arizona (NAPSI) - There is good news for people who bleed easily, such as the 52 million Americans on blood thinners or those with thin skin. For them, the smallest cut can bleed for hours or even days before stopping.
It’s a nuisance that disrupts their daily life. While medical professionals have the technology to stop bleeding instantly in the hospital, an over-the-counter solution is now available to do the same in the home.
After many successful clinical studies and years of use in leading hospitals, the topical powder, called WoundSeal, created by senior citizens for senior citizens, stops bleeding through the creation of an instant scab. It is the only product that stops bleeding and seals the wound within seconds of its application.
“It’s just amazing how effectively the powder works,” says Louis M. Guzzi, M.D. “I think it is the next generation of wound care, like adhesive bandages were a century ago. Once poured and pressed onto the bleeding wound, the powder combines with blood to form an instant scab, which is waterproof and durable. In most cases, bleeding stops almost instantly, even for my patients on blood thinners.”
The topical powder works for everyone and does not interact with existing medications.
In a popular retirement community in southwestFlorida, Jim Simpson, 65, said this medical breakthrough is welcome news.
“As someone who takes blood thinners, I bleed easily at the slightest bump and bandages do not stop the bleeding. It’s been frustrating to constantly change messy bandages to the point that it really disrupted my life. But then we tried this powder and it worked in seconds the first time I tried it. I’ll never be without it again.”
Dr. Guzzi agrees. “I trust it so much that I gave it to my mom and grandmother to use at home when I can’t be there to help.”
WoundSeal, which is guaranteed by the manufacturer to work, is now available at Walgreens and CVS locations nationwide. For more information, medical facts, store locations, clinical studies and testimonials, visit www.woundseal.com or call (800) 722-7559.
