Quick Reference – To Bleed or Not to Bleed (About Hemostatic Agents)

Dr. Alton of DoomAndBloom.net recently posted an article about hemostatic agents (Quickclot and Celox) discussing the differences between them and when they should and should not be used. Good info to know if you have them in your kits and/or you’re not sure if you should stock them.

    Ibuprofen thins your blood = you bleed more .

    Excellent articles on controlling bleeding! I often print Dr. Bones /Nurse Amy’s information and put the material in a binder. It can save your life one day. I bought Quickclot several times, but really did not know how to use it. After reading this, I now know that these first aid items should be used after convention methods (direct pressure, tourniquet) have failed to stop the bleeding. Thanks for posting this information!

    I have some of the old quickclot so maybe I should replace it. Thanks for linking to this.
