First Aid Essential
ChitoSAM™ Active Dressing
Designed to stop bleeding fast from wounds or lacerations, Sawyer’s ChitoSAM Active Dressing — made of hemostatic chitosan — is extremely effective and safe, plus it can be broken down and digested by the body.
ChitoSAM (pronounced kye-toe-sam) is is ideal for use in trauma situations, single or multiple lacerations, on cuts — any first aid situation when you need to quickly stop lethal bleeding.
Chitosan has been used extensively in vascular closures, human cardiac surgery, and by militaries worldwide.
How It Works
Stops Bleeding Fast
Easy to use and safe, ChitoSAM produces localized clotting and works independently of the body’s normal clotting processes to control bleeding in minutes. Made of 100% pure, non-woven, medical grade chitosan, this unique material is extremely effective compared to products simply impregnated or coated with chitosan hemostatic agents.
Unlike some clay alternatives, ChitoSAM does not contain any non-degrading minerals or nano-particles that could potentially spread throughout the body and make it more difficult to clean the wound. It’s easily removed with water or a saline solution without causing unnecessary stress on the wound.
ChitoSAM is available in a 4 x 4-inch single use dressing, or a 3-inch x 6-foot Z-fold dressing that can be used on larger wounds or cut to size for multiple wounds.
The “tear anywhere” packaging allows you to quickly access to the ChitoSAM hemostatic dressing.
Simply open the packaging using any of the tear strips located along every edge.
ChitoSAM makes no antimicrobial claims, but chitosan is well documented as an antimicrobial agent against fungi, bacteria, and viruses including MRSA (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus), VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococci), S. aureus, and E. coli.
