MIL88 (Military) - Axiostat ® is a sterile, single use, non-absorbable hemostatic dressing intended to be used by Army for temporary control of bleeding wounds. Axiostat ® stops moderate to severe bleeding due to cuts, abrasions, lacerations, venous or arterial bleeding. Indicated to use on Gunshot wounds, Scalp & Limb Cuts, lacerations, abrasions, Puncture or stab wounds and Patients with blood disorders or on blood thinners.
Axiostat prevents loss of blood by providing an active mechanical barrier to the bleeding site.
Axiostat is a sterile. non-absorbable hemostatic dressing intended to be used to control bleeding within minutes of application by providing an active mechanical barrier to the bleeding site.
Axiostat ® accelerates blood clotting and reduces loss of blood because of wounds resulting from gunshots, punctures & stab wounds, scalp & limb cuts, lacerations, and avulsions. It is the best hemostatic dressing and is an indispensable part of the military first aid kit.
The Axiostat for military ss extensively used by defense forces across the globe in order to control bleeding and reduce blood loss resulting from gunshot wounds and blast injuries. It is also recommended for patients with blood disorders or on blood thinners. The Axiostat is presented in a camouflaged, rugged metal package. is easy to carry and can withstand extreme temperatures.

Chitosan - the most promising biomaterial of 21st century
Chitosan is considered as one of the most promising biomaterial of 21st century on accounts of its versatile nature, excellent biodegradability, biocompatibility, antimicrobial activity, non-toxicity, and wide applications. Chitosan is derived from Chitin, a second most abundantly available natural polymer after cellulose.
Chitin is naturally found in the exoskeleton of shellfish such as crabs and shrimps, and in the cell membranes of fungi, yeasts and other microorganisms. It is not soluble in dilute acids, whereas chitosan is soluble in dilute acids.
Chitosan is primarily composed of glucosamine and N-acetyl glucosamine residues with a 1, 4-β-linkage. The presence of primary amines (-NH2) in chitosan gives it a net positive charge and are important for its biological properties
The production chitosan starts with the selection of suitable source for chitin extraction. Chitin can be extracted from either the animal sources such as shellfish or the non-animal sources such as fungi. The physicochemical properties of chitosan can vary greatly depending on its source.
Chitin is extracted from the natural sources via demineralization and deproteination. The purified Chitin is then treated with concentrated alkalis (e.g. sodium hydroxide) to obtain Chitosan.
The process is known as deacetylation and it affects the final properties of Chitosan such as extent of positive charge (proportion of amine groups in polymer) and molecular weight.
Instructions for use:
1. Tear open Axiostat pack.
2. Apply Axiostat with pressure until dressing sticks to wound.
3. Once applied, do not lift or remove Axiostat, not even to check hemostasis. Apply field dressing to secure Axiostat in position.
4. To remove Axiostat, irrigate with saline and gently peel it off.
