We evaluated the effectiveness of a novel hemostatic powder called Tranexamic Acid-loaded Porous Starch (TAPS) developed recently on blood clotting activity and hemostasis. The effectiveness of TAPS was evaluated by comparing hemostatic properties with those of Quick-acting Styptic Powder (QSP) and Compound Microporous Polysaccharide Haemostatic powder (CMPHP). The blood clotting activities of human blood were analyzed by thromboela-stogram (TEG) assays in vitro. The hemostatic effectiveness in vivo was evaluated using a rat model with hepatic traumatic hemorrhage...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a method of life support for either isolated cardiac failure or respiratory failure, with or without cardiac failure. When used for hemodynamic support, the ECMO circuit presents a non-endothelialized, artificial surface to blood inciting an inflammatory response which activates haemostatic pathways. Anticoagulation may complicate a pre-existing coagulopathy and/or inadequate surgical hemostasis of varying severity...

The work is aimed to an assessment of the correlation between of autonomic nervous system tone and the level of reactivity of the students' cardiovascular system and hemostasis system under examination stress. It was found that the students under exam stress are characterized with high values of respiration rate and with lower ones of tidal volume. The value of respiratory minute volume decreases in male students due to the bronchoconstrictor effects of stress at the tracheobronchial tree. This finding confirms a statistically significant reduction in the flow of small, medium and large bronchi, indicating an increased parasympathetic nervous system tone...
