Trauma Kit Employs Clotting Sponge Approved By The Department Of Defense
(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 12, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- First Aid Shoppe, distributors of high-trauma and specialized medical kits to the general public, announced today that the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge in their ResQue 1st Emergency Trauma Kit contains the same advanced hemostatic (blood clotting) agent used by all branches of the US Armed Forces.
"This is the same product being used by the military," says First Aid Shoppe COO, Anna Loehwing. "The QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge contains the same agent approved by the Department of Defense (DoD) that is used to treat battlefield trauma. It's a small, sealed pack, a sponge, and when you've got someone bleeding bad you just open the pack and apply this dressing directly to the wound. It stops the bleeding fast." The QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge is designed to be fast and easy to use, and to stop bleeding at the source of the injury in minutes. It does this through that same, advanced hemostatic agent employed by the military on the battlefield. Instructions on the package are easy to follow, and the QuikClot sponge can generally stop bleeding from a major wound long enough to seek the next level of help.
"After breathing bleeding is your primary concern in a major injury," says Ms. Loehwing. "This kit is made for that bad accident when the bleeding is bad and a band-aid won't do. Bones can be set later, other things can be fixed. But if you don't stop the bleeding, fast, you might not need the rest."
The ResQue 1st Emergency Trauma Kit is compact, at 8 inches on the long side and less than half a pound in weight, and designed to compliment other, more comprehensive first aid gear. This kit comes with just the items needed for a major bleeding emergency. Soldiers use the same items to treat serious hemorrhaging in the field.
The ResQue 1st Emergency Trauma Kit with QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge is available on Amazon and is now on sale, marked down 50%.
