This product is an absolute 'must have' item in any aid kit for people working or enjoying the out of doors in locations distant from immediate medical care. This order was a replacement for the product I used. As an aside recommendation, QuikClot Sport is very effective when used in conjunction with an 'Israeli-style' combat dressing (easily applied by one person or the injured victim).
Edit 20-July-2015: I forgot about this post until Amazon notified me that another reviewer had commented that Quikclot is 'dangerous' and can 'cause heart attacks and strokes'. A spirited discussion between he and I followed. But, as he suggested, I did some updated reading to see if there was sufficient validity to his assertions and to determine if I should remove Quikclot from my IFAK and my general use FAK.
I searched the NIH database and the FDA database and found little. I found the bulk of material that condemns Quikclot on various ex-mil and survivalist-type Youtubes, blogs, and forums.Read more ›
The US Army & Marines have chosen quick clot to stop battlefield bleeding and loss of blood volume and pressure. If it's good enough for the government, and been extensively tested by them then its ready to go for me. It's a natural product that does the job without nasty chemicals.
You should also have a roll of gauze to go with the quick clot to hold it in place. Pressure is an important part of stopping bleeding but all you get in the package is a 5x5" square that is embedded with crystals of the quick clot agent - once they get bloody and wet they go to work right away promoting clotting. You need gause to hold the quick clot in place over the wound especially during the first 10 minutes (the clot will form in 5 minutes based on medical testing on the femeral artery being sliced open to insert a port to run a catheter up to the heart. The quick clot is put over the hole in the artery and held in place for 5 minutes, then removed with a nice clot formed over the artery. Keep in mind the arteries have the higher pressure and are harder to stop bleeding because they are high pressure blood vessels.
Finally, it's been shown that an individual can apply and secure a quick clot bandage by themselves, effectively self-treating a major blead without outside help. That's impressive, and that's why the quick clot and the gause roll are the first two items in my medical kit when I am out in no mands land.
It comes in 25g and 50g sizes, the 50g is a better deal and bigger. Get this one.
Do yourself a favor and immediately add a package of QuikClot to your first aid kit. It like magic in a bag in regards to stopping bleeding. Its nothing short of ingenious and again should be mandatory in all first aid kits.
