Controlling massive hemorrhage is of great importance to lower transfusional medical cost, and to reduce death and mobility rate in battlefield and civilian accidents. We reported the fabrication of porous chitosan microspheres (CSMS) with tunable surface pore size by microemulsion combined with thermally induced phase separation technique, and its application as a quick hemostat. Their hemostatic property was characterized by blood clotting kinetics, adherence interaction between red blood cells/platelets and CSMS, in vitro and in vivo hemostasis by rat tail amputation and liver laceration models, and histological analysis...
