This is the smallest version designed for EDC to stop a puncturing bleed, like a gunshot or stab wound, long enough to reach a higher level care facility.
WoundClot is a new-generation hemostatic agent released in 2016 and gaining rapid adoption around the world. The key benefit is its effectiveness using only initial placement pressure, without a requirement for holding direct pressure for minutes after application.
The product is a single-use, sterile hemostatic gauze made from regenerated cellulose. It effectively stops moderate to severe bleeding, by promoting rapid coagulation.
Upon contact with blood, the product’s molecular structure changes to form a gelatinous membrane, which adheres to the wound creating a mechanical barrier to immediately reduce blood flow. The stronger the bleeding pressures in the wound, the stronger the attraction, able to withstand severe arterial and venous blood flow for hours.
After bleeding has stopped, the remaining residual membrane can be irrigated out of the wound safely without pulling on soft tissue or the existing clot.
WoundClot can be easily removed, if desired, as one piece without disrupting the clot already formed.
