XSTAT 12 Syringe Bleeding Wound Filler
XSTAT 12 is a first-in-kind hemostatic device for the treatment of gunshot and shrapnel wounds. It is designed to treat life-threatening bleeding from penetrating wounds in junctional areas that may be too narrow to access.
XSTAT devices work by injecting a group of small, rapidly-expanding sponges into a wound cavity using a syringe-like applicator. In a wound, the sponges rapidly expand and exert hemostatic pressure. Each sponge contains an x-ray detectable marker to confirm complete surgical removal. It enables treatment of penetrating trauma from smaller caliber bullets, stab wounds and other lifethreatening injuries that require immediate treatment.

It should only be used for patients at high risk for immediate life-threatening bleeding from, hemodynamically significant (Advanced Trauma Life Support class 3 or 4 hemorrhagic shock), non- compressible junctional wounds, and when definitive care at an emergency care facility cannot be achieved within minutes.
