Description:

QuikClot® Combat Gauze™ combines surgical gauze with a proprietary inorganic material that stops arterial and venous bleeding in seconds – even more rapidly in this format than earlier Z-Medica products. Based on a different mineral than zeolite-based QuikClot® products, it generates no heat. It shares the benefit of being inert and non-allergenic. QuikClot® Combat Gauze™ comes in single roll package. Roll is four yards long by three inches wide.

    1st review

    Set aside whatever you may like or dislike about traditional QuikClot and look at this product as something entirely different. No heat. No granules. No sponges. This may look and feel like ordinary soft qauze, but it is capable of stopping the worst bleed in less than 4 mins. (equal to a 100gram sponge) We started offering this as a substitute for the QuikClot First Responder sponges in the GSW Kit that we have on State Contract for DPS. Officers can also buy Combat Gauze for themselves - it's so compact that it can be carried in a small pouch on a duty belt or tac vest. This is a GREAT product - a true LIFESAFER!!

    This product is years ahead what we were using. Of course in a year or so I will say that about the new product but for the last three years this has dominated. Using this in a military or a civilian setting it is the best you can get. I recommend anyone that considers themselves a Medic to carry this in their kit. I have seen this control femoral lacerations (inguinal) in well under the three minute recommended time.
