Company Develops Tool To Seal Battlefield Gunshot Wounds In 15 Seconds

 

   

 

 

” Currently, blood loss from gunshot wounds sustained in a battlefield environment can be extremely difficult to treat, especially if heavy blood loss in play. A medic must stop bleeding long enough to get the wounded party to more advanced care.

  With that in mind a company called RevMedX has developed, with funding from the Army, a fairly innovative method for stopping blood loss due to a gunshot wound in a mere 15 seconds.

  According to the company’s website,

  XStat is an investigational hemostatic dressing under development by RevMedx for the control of severe bleeding from pelvis or shoulder wounds not amenable to tourniquet application in adults and adolescents.”
