A must for any first aid or emergency kit, QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge stops moderate to severe bleeding until further medical help is available.
QuikClot is a chemically inert material in a mesh bag that speeds coagulation of blood, resulting in a stable clot that stops bleeding.
QuikClot stops bleeding quicker than conventional methods and is safe to leave on wounds until more advanced medical help arrives.
QuikClot hemostatic agent is a molecular sieve, sifting molecules by size. When QuikClot comes into contact with blood in and around a wound, it rapidly takes in the smaller water molecules from the blood. The larger platelet and clotting factor molecules remain in the wound in a highly concentrated form. This promotes extremely rapid natural clotting and prevents severe blood loss. Additionally, the nano-engineered particles provide key surface chemistry, rapidly enhancing the bodys natural coagulation process. The process represents a new approach to hemostasis, which typically involves adding clotting factors rather than extracting elements to halt bleeding.
QuikClot helps create a stable, powerful clot, which stays firmly in place until it is removed in the field hospital or operating room setting.
Package contains a 5 x 5 in. (50g) bag of Quikclot for coverage of large wounds
