Gel under development could improve battlefield wound treatment, military researchers say | Stars & Stripes

Must Read

The Defense Health Agency has funded research to create a hemostatic gel to improve battlefield wound treatment. The gel is known as StatBond, which is characterized for its clear and silicon-based properties. What makes StatBond different from other products out there is that this works on an arterial bleed, which can be hard to treat in the field. Blood coming from arterial wounds is more likely to wash away coagulants before they can stop the bleeding, which requires the medic to apply constant pressure, something they can’t always do if under enemy fire.
