What is oozing?

Oozing is exudative bleeding caused by accentuated fibrinolysis. It is said that oozing easily occurs when adhesions are lysed, cancerous lesions are removed, or organs such as the lung, kidney, liver, prostate gland, and uterus are removed. To treat oozing, firm pressure may be applied using gauze moistened with warm physiological saline. If fibrinolysis has progressed, however, bleeding does not stop and there will be the need for hemostatic agents. Although bleeding from thick vessels can be stopped using hemostatic forceps of ligation, administration of hemostatic agents may be required to stop bleeding from thin vessels, because it not only makes operative manipulations difficult prolonging the operation time, but also worsens patient’s general conditions increasing the outflow of blood.
