QuikClot (TM) will be made available to public

st applied, QuikClot adsorbs all the liquid in the blood, and leaves behind the clotting factors. The material itself (refined zeolite) is indestructible. It can stay in the body until the injured is removed to medical care and changes neither in size nor consistency when wound fluids are fully absorbed, rendering it easily irrigated and/or aspirated.

It only took seven months for ONR to learn of QuikClot (through the Marine Corps), test it, and get it deployed to U.S. troops. It only took the FDA two weeks to approve it after that testing was completed. The product -- already commercially available -- is a remarkable medical advance for police and fire rescue units, EMTs, hikers, campers, and others far from local medical care. Release of the consumer version of QuikClot for home first aid use is slated for summer '03. Z-Medica is also planning clinicals to test anecdotal evidence that QuikClot could be helpful for the particular bleeding problems of diabetics, hemophiliacs, and coumadin users.
