QuikClot® gauze products are impregnated with kaolin, a naturally occurring, inorganic mineral. They were the first hemostatic gauze made available to stop both arterial and venous bleeding in seconds. QuikClot® product development over the past many years has eliminated all of the “heat generation” that was associated with their products in the late 1990’s.
All QuikClot® products are flexible and conform to wounds, allowing for ease of use to fill penetrating wounds and also for use as a normal bandage wrap to stop bleeding.
QuikClot® products are CE certified as a ClassII b medicalproduct. The QuikClot® Emergency Dressing™ and Trauma Pad™ both have an X-Ray detectable strip that provide for easy identification under X-Ray, making them safe for wound packing. Additionally, the silver foiled, peel-open packaging of these two products allows for correct product opening conditions onto a sterile field in emergency departments, operating rooms and patient treatment rooms.
