More than a Decade of Invention and Category Leadership
Z-Medica was founded in 2002 after Apollo Space Program Engineer Frank Hursey discovered a novel hemostatic agent. Mr. Hursey saw the potential value of his discovery and, after partnering with Bart Gullong, they set out to ensure that this innovative product was in the hands of anyone who could use it to save lives. While new and revolutionary products have replaced the original zeolite granular product, the desire to bring leading-edge hemostatic innovation to the world lives on.
As a testament to QuikClot’s efficacy, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) recommends QuikClot Combat Gauze® as the hemostatic dressing of choice for compressible hemorrhage not amenable to tourniquet use.1
