QuikClot® EMS products are the same as all other well known QuikClot® kaolin products, but the difference is they are specifically packaged for civilian prehospital use. There is no X-Ray detectable strip and the package has a tear-open top allowing for the fastest access to the product, which can be especially important if the user is wearing thick gloves. As with all QuikClot® products, the kaolin activates the patients coagulation factors to accelerate the time to “stop the bleeding”.
Unlike other hemostatic agents, QuikClot® products contain no animal components, alleviating concerns of possible allergic reactions. And like all QuikClot® products it conforms to the wound. QuikClot® EMS products can be used superficially or for deep wounds. All QuikClot® products are effective on patients who take anticoagulant medication.
