Pansement hémostatique de combat Quikclot
Proven on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, QuikClot® products put life-saving technology into the hands of US soldiers to treat hemorrhaging wounds. Originally engineered for military use, QuikClot® devices are impregnated with kaolin, an ingredient that stops bleeding fast when applied with pressure.
QuikClot Combat Gauze® is a 3-inch x 4-yard strip of z-folded, soft, white, nonwoven, hydrophilic gauze impregnated with kaolin, an inorganic mineral that is both safe and effective in accelerating the body’s natural clotting cascade without any exothermic reactions or use of animal or human proteins.
QuikClot Combat Gauze® contains an X-ray detectable strip for easy identification.
Each QuikClot Combat Gauze®, Item #200, NSN 6510-01-562-3325 is packaged in an easy-tear pouch, vacuum sealed and has five year expiration.
