The aim of this research was determination of the required time for coagulation of in vivo cut bleeding treated by non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma. To meet this, an atmospheric pressure plasma jet device was designed and constructed. Helium was used as working gas. The electrical parameters and optical emission spectrum of helium plasma were measured. The averaged treatment time to coagulate the incision bleeding on the mouse liver was obtained 8.6 μs, and the average time of naturally incision bleeding coagulation was 10 min.
- The coagulation time of in vivo bleeding treated by cold atmospheric pressure plasma was determined.
- The optical emission spectrum of plasma showed the existance of ROS and RNS species.
- The coagulation time of treated cut was compared with control cut.
