Bioviva is an individually packaged, sterile, soluble, cellulose-based, bacteriostatic hemostatic gauze dressing made from oxidized, regenerated cellulose derived from plants. Bioviva absorbs blood and immediately transforms into a viscous gel, sealing the extraction site, filling wound voids, seals capillary ends and activating the clotting system to assist the body to stop bleeding.
The product is packed in twenty (20) individual blister packs in 1.9 cm squares for ease of use and to avoid any cross contamination issues. Simply puncture the packaging backing and remove the gauze from the packaging using dry forceps to avoid the gauze from sticking to the forceps. The product can be cut to size if the gauze is larger than the site, but I have found this is generally not necessary and the product can be folded to properly fit using the tissue forceps. Once the product is removed from the packaging the product is simply placed onto the wound or extraction site dry and with a matter of 15-20 seconds the material absorbs the wound fluids and turns into a gel and fills the void. Once the site is properly sealed with the material it can be properly rinsed and should not become dislodged.
Bioviva is efficient, effective and safe to use. It coagulates blood faster than other hemostats and is very effective to stop bleeding even when the patients may be taking anticoagulants. It allows for reduced infection as it provides a barrier over the extraction site and it has been proven to nearly eliminate dry sockets.
