(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 28, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- Clearwater based First Aid & Safety reports that the new QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge has been named the only hemostatic agent approved for unrestricted use in all four branches of the US Armed Forces. The QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge has been battle tested and approved by the US Department of Defense. QuikClot is a single use mesh pouch designed to stop bleeding by triggering quick clotting. The sponge is applied directly to the injury or wound, and can be used when injuries occur far from medical facilities. It is designed to be an emergency on-scene solution to serious bleeding. Use of the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge controls or stops bleeding until help can arrive, or until transport of the victim can be arranged.
"People are alive today because of this Advanced Clotting Sponge," says First Aid & Safety COO, Anna Loehwing. "When someone needs a blood clotting agent due to a serious injury, QuikClot is the best there is." QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, which is included in the Emergency Trauma Kit by First Aid & Safety, can stop severe bleeding in seconds. "QuikClot is used by military, police, and EMT units for the same sort of emergency wound care," says Ms. Loehwing. "If you're engaged in any activity where you could be seriously injured, or hurt far from help, you need this kit. Our trauma kit provides you with all the essential items to save a life. In addition to the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge our kit contains key lifesaving items you need in the event of a medical emergency."
The QuikClot Trauma Kit comes with, in addition to the QuikClot blood clotting bandage to stop bleeding: antiseptic gloves, antiseptic wipes, gauze, tape, a heavy duty clip and a carrying case to make it easy and compact to have on hand.
"Get on for your car, to have in your tent, the boat, your purse, glove box, backpack ... in short, have it handy at all times," says Ms. Loehwing. "Be prepared for any emergency with this life-saving kit."
The QuickClot Trauma Kit is now available on Amazon.
