Quik Clot Bleeding Control Z-Fold DressingZ-Medica
When life-threatening bleeding occurs, its all about cheating time. QuikClot with its proprietary hemostatic technology consists of a nonwoven material impregnated with kaolin an inorganic mineral that activates Factor XII which in turn accelerates the body’s natural clotting ability. This bleeding control solution creates a robust clot to control bleeding fast, until medical support arrives. For over 12 years, QuikClot Combat Gauze® has been chosen by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC), as the "hemostatic dressing of choice” for the U.S. Department of Defense.
QuikClot Bleeding Control Z-fold Dressing from North American Rescue is the premier gauze available to stop bleeding of superficial wounds, minor cuts, and abrasions. Utilizing the same fast-acting technology adopted by the US military for years to save lives (QuikClot Combat Gauze®), the Bleeding Control Dressing works fast by accelerating the body’s natural clotting process using a proprietary, inert, inorganic material impregnated into a easy-to-use gauze that will not break down or fall apart under pressure. The Bleeding Control Dressing helps blood clot up to five times faster than blood on its own, and it can control bleeding within minutes of application.
The Bleeding Control Z-fold Dressing comes packaged in a rugged, easy-tear pouch that is durable and user-friendly and easy to identify. The product is lightweight and small, but contains 4 yards of hemostatic-impregnated gauze in a Z-folded configuration for maximum bleeding control.
QuikClot Combat Gauze features:
- Intuitive to use, QuikClot Combat Gauze uses the same placement technique as standard gauze
- Vacuum sealed, compact, cube-sized packaging, and eight tear points expedite access to dressing for quicker application
- Contains an X-ray detectable strip for easy identification
- Five-year shelf life
