Features and Benefits

GuardIVa™ Antimicrobial Hemostatic IV Dressing is an IV site care solution that combines the antimicrobial protection of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG), a well-known antiseptic agent with broad spectrum antimicrobial and antifungal activity, with the proprietary hemostatic agent which controls surface bleeding from percutaneous catheters and vascular access sites.

Hemostasis

An in vivo animal test showed that, compared to gauze dressings, wounds treated with the GuardIVa Antimicrobial Hemostatic Dressing significantly reduced time to hemostasis and had up to 7 times less blood loss.3
