'Super glue' to save from life threatening blood loss

It can be used in deep wounds, reptile bite, and many more to save the affected person from blood loss.

 

Death through blood loss is fairly common around the world. Whether patients get impaled or struck by an object, if proper medical care is not provided, the victim often dies.

 

A technology to create a revolution in medical science is here. A team of scientists has invented a 'super glue', which can be used in deep wounds, reptile bite, and many more to save the affected person from blood loss.

 

A shiny visible liquid can come out of the tube which is applied on the wounded area on which a laser pointer or even a smartphone flashlight is to be kept and the job is done.

 

Kibret Mequanint, who is a bio-engineer from Western University has invented it with the help of others. He has been creating a lot of varied medical devices in the last 20 years which are of great use in the field. This is his latest work which has blood-clotting enzymes used mostly when a person is bitten by South America’s deadly snakes.

 

Mequanint with his international research team has created this tissue glue which enzymes help pack the tissues with the liquid in the tiny tube.
