Stopping bleeding often requires urgent medical attention and can cause disability and mortality in patients. Commonly used hemostatic drugs are not available and have limited efficacy. On the other hand, these drugs are expensive and the economic burden caused by various therapies has made many problems for the society. Persian medicine, one of the holistic medical schools, has special therapies in this regard which can be helpful for medical community. Various natural compounds have been used in Persian medicine to control bleeding, including ash types. One of its most popular types is burnt cotton. The purpose of this paper is to extract burnt cotton as an anti-hemorrhagic agent in the Persian medicine texts as a rich school with a history of fruitful growth.
