QuikClot: Delivery of an Effective Hemostatic Agent
As the recommended hemostatic dressing for the U.S. Military, more than six million units of QuikClot Combat Gauze have been deployed since 2008. QuikClot is also used throughout the world in hospitals, law enforcement, disaster recovery and first responder kits, making QuikClot a key component of hemorrhage control solutions everywhere.
QuikClot devices use a proprietary methodology to impregnate gauze with kaolin, an inorganic mineral that accelerates the body’s natural clotting ability1,2 and produces no exothermic reaction. Since QuikClot does not contain animal proteins, human proteins, shellfish or botanicals, hemostasis can be achieved without worry of instigating an allergic response.1,2
