Hemostatic agents have been effective at controlling major external bleeding for a few years now.QuikClot Combat GauzefromZ-Medicanow combines hemostatic properties with the simplicity of gauze, all in a heat-free formulation. The gauze is simply applied to the wound and held with pressure for three minutes. The bandage is then wrapped and secured as normal, preceding transport to the appropriate facility. The Department of Defense recently approved QuikClot Combat Gauze for all military services as a first-line hemostatic treatment for life threatening hemorrhage not amenable to tourniquet placement.
