Many thanks to the crew over at www.Wilderness-Survival.net for the tip on this pretty interesting type of “bandage”.
http://www.njbiomaterials.org/web/index.php?p=cembr&s=2288 is the link to a company that is making a spray-on-bandage. This has obvious applications in remote medical settings.
After the large amount of use the rapid hemostatic agents ( QuikClot ) are seeing in Afghanistan and Iraq, could this be the next line?
