Would love it if someone could summarize? Maybe explain?

When the adhesive is removed, the blood goes back to normal and they live? A normal life? Could a person?

This is a bit different, but there is a thing called amnion which can be used as a liquid or thin membrane, covering wounds and allowing your body to regenerate itself rather than produce scar tissue.

Amnion is amniotic fluid and it is part of the reptile/mammal embryo during embryonic development

Also, ammonium is an ion (NH₄⁺); ammonia is the molecule (NH₃).

Sounds like the adhesive is a porous gel designed to let the liquid part of blood through while keeping the clotting agents and other solids in place. So, it ought to allow normal clotting behaviour in situations where blood loss would otherwise be too fast to allow clots to form. If the adhesive is removed after the clot has formed ... there's still a clot there.
