QuikClot® Product History
Blood loss from traumatic injury causes approximately 50,000 deaths a year in the United States alone. First Responders are the first on the scene to those unforeseen accidents and disasters. The QuikClot® EMS Family of Products put life-saving technology in the hands of First Responders, so they can jump into action as soon as they arrive on the scene of a traumatic event.
First used by the United States Military, QuikClot® hemostasis products addressed a persistent need for a product that could stop severe bleeding rapidly, effectively and safely. Having saved hundreds of lives on the battlefields since 2008, QuikClot® kaolin products are the only recommended choice of hemostatic agent for all branches of the US Military as deemed by the CoTCCC (Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care). This groundbreaking and life-saving product is now available to First Responders.
With QuikClot® products, EMS personnel have the power to stop bleeding fast, keeping patients alive until they can be transported to the hospital or a trauma center.
QuikClot® products are safe, containing no animal or human proteins, and are easy to use.
