Compact Trauma Kit Includes Military Grade Clotting Sponge
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 02, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- First Aid Shoppe, makers of advanced first aid kits and first aid products, reports that the hemostatic agent used in their QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge is the only such agent approved for use in all four branches of the US Armed Forces. QuikClot has been battle tested and is approved by the US Department of Defense. First Aid Shoppe describes the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge as a mesh pouch with an inert material - zeolite - which stops bleeding at point of injury through rapid clotting.
"We wanted our Trauma Kit to have a way to stop serious bleeding fast," says First Aid Shoppe COO, Anna Loehwing. "Our belief is that a true trauma kit should contain the things you need to treat serious injuries and acute medical emergencies, quickly, right on the scene. You need to be able to stabilize the victim, whether yourself or someone else, until help can arrive. To do that we knew we needed to include the best product out there for stopping bleeding. QuikcClot is it." Ms. Loehwing reports that QuikClot is easy to use and apply, and is designed to stop bleeding at the scene.
"With most injuries blood loss is your greatest risk," says Ms. Loehwing. "We've solved that with our Trauma Kit. With this small, easily portable trauma kit we've provided the means for anyone to have treatment easily on-hand." The First Aid Shoppe ResQue 1st Emergency Trauma Kit contains all the essential items needed to carry out emergency medical treatment on the scene until help arrives, or until the victim can be transported. The kit includes QuikClot, a pair of antiseptic gloves, antiseptic wipes, gauze, tape, all stored in a compact carrying case with a heavy duty hanging clip.
"With this new kit we've made it as easy as possible to be prepared for a serious injury," says Ms. Loehwing.
The First Aid Shoppe ResQue 1st Emergency Trauma Kit With QuikClot is now available on Amazon, with a full satisfaction guarantee.
