Biomaterials Systems and Devices for Hemostasis, Resuscitation and Wound Care

Timeslot: Friday, April 23, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
Track: Cardiovascular Biomaterials
Room: Virtual


Hemorrhage control, hemodynamic resuscitation and spatio-temporal wound care via passive and/or bioactive mechanisms are important application areas of biomaterials-based technologies and includes external, intracavitary, and intravascular hemostats, nanoparticle/microparticle systems, artificial blood surrogates, dressings, powders, foams, fibers and gels. The goal of this session is to highlight recent advances in such biomaterials technologies that focus on hemostasis/thrombosis, hemodynamic stabilization, tissue oxygenation and wound healing. The proposed session will invite presentations from researchers in this field that discuss design of the biomaterials systems, structure-property-function relationships, and translational visions of such technologies. Presentations focused on material considerations for microdevices for investigating hemostatic and thrombotic pathways are also of interest for this session.
