QuikClot or QR (WoundSeal)?

OK - First - what is a "Hemostatic Agent"? Hemostatic agents promote hemostasis.

Well, that was REALLY helpful, eh?

An antihemorrhagic (antihaemorrhagic) agent is a substance that promotes hemostasis (stops bleeding). Also known as a hemostatic (also spelled haemostatic) agent.

OK - This stuff stops bleeding - FAST

Which is better? That's really up to you - we've heard exceptional reviews on both from our customers. We've also used both very successfully...

WoundSeal can be poured into a wound, which is is great for certain types of wounds, especially nosebleeds and small cuts -

Quick Clot dresses the wound, lays on top like a bandage, so it is great for larger wounds and abrasions. Best bet? Keep both in your first aid kit or responder pack!

  • […] • Have the casualty sit in a chair and lean slightly forward. • Apply pressure below the midline of the nose, close to the nostrils, by pinching with the thumb and index finger for 10 continuous minutes. Do not press the bridge of the nose between the eyes. • If the bleeding does not stop, apply a cold compress to area. • If the bleeding does not stop after 15 minutes, is extremely heavy, or if the casualty has difficulty breathing, seek medical attention. * Many people lean backward when treating a nosebleed, which causes blood to flow into their sinuses causing infections, or into their stomach causing nausea and vomiting. Who wants to throw up while dealing with a bloody nose!?!? Pinch and lean Forward… ~~ Also see our great product for stopping nose bleeds. […]
