Do you know of a source of Quikclot in the Bay Area? I want to pick up some ACS sponges in time for a hunting trip.

Have you used quikclot before? If not, be careful with it.

I thought quikclot was an idiot who could do the 100 meters in less than 13 seconds........ (Its an inside Brit joke)

you might want to look at Celox as a blood stopper instead of Quikclot.

I have heard it has less side effects.

I appreciate the pointer for Celox but I'm not trained on it. How does it differ from QuikClot

QuikClot was recently reformulated and the claim violent exothermic reaction issues have been resolved. One does not have to be so careful with the proportion of blood to agent. I'm looking for the ACS sponges as application and removal is much more idiot proofed.

I got mine through my employer. Reed's Indoor Range in Santa Clara is doing a good defensive med class for about $200.

Celox is gauze hemo agent that doesn't burn.

I wasn't aware Quickclot had been reformulated.

that's good to know.
